First quarter freshman and middle school students must maintain passing grades in all classes. All cases falling below this level will be reviewed by the administration. If a student is failing, the administration will intervene and develop a plan of action to assist the student. Students who are more than one (1) credit deficient are academically ineligible.  Students who are deficient one (1) or less may be placed on a contract. The contract may include any of the following options:


a.      Full participation with conditions

b.      Practice without competition

c.      Total non-participation


Student athletes considered to be Division I or II scholarship prospects are reminded that there are course requirements to be eligible for scholarships. Contact your Guidance Counselor.


Parent/Guardian(s) are to ensure the student have passing grades. The parent/guardian should communicate to the coach if the student is having difficulty maintaining passing grades. Parent/guardian or the coach may withhold the student athlete from practice and/or race if he/she is not maintaining passing grades.


Attendance and Behavior Standards

Athletes are expected to abide by all school attendance and behavior guidelines. Participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege offered to students in good standing. Athletes are expected to be in class as scheduled. Unexcused absences may result in exclusion from the next event. Athletes may be excluded from events or activities due to behavior unbecoming that of an athlete or for a violation of the school’s rules of conduct. A felony conviction will have a penalty no less than that for a second chemical violation. This determination will be made by the Coach, Athletic Director and Building Principal or Assistant Principal.


Mood-Altering Chemicals

A.     Philosophy and Purpose

The Rochester Area Composite Mountain Bike Team recognizes the use of mood-altering chemicals as a significant health problem for many adolescents, resulting in negative effects on behavior, learning and the total development of related skills. Others are affected by the misuse and abuse of family, team members or other significant persons in their lives.


B.     Rule

During the calendar year, regardless of the quantity, a student shall not: 1) use or have in possession a beverage containing alcohol; 2) use or have in possession tobacco; or,3) use or consume, have in possession, buy, sell, or give away any other controlled substance. The rule applies during the entire year including the summer months. It is not a violation for a student to be in possession of a controlled substance specifically prescribed for the student’s own use by her or his doctor.


C.     Penalties for Activities

a.      First Violation

Penalty: After confirmation of the first chemical violation, the student shall lose eligibility for 50% of the scheduled regular season events of the activity season in which the student is a participant. Any percent of an unfulfilled suspension will be applied in the next season the student participates in. The first possession violation will result in a suspension of 2 weeks or 2 events, whichever is greater.


b.      Second Violation

Penalty: After confirmation of the second chemical violation, the student shall lose eligibility for one calendar year.


c.      Third Violation

       Penalty: After confirmation of the third and subsequent violations, the student shall lose eligibility for further

        participation.
