To participate in extracurricular activities, a high school student must have a minimum 2.00 grade point average and no “F” grades. Report card and interim report grades determine eligibility; ineligibility is determined by end-of-term report cards only. Eligibility for fall extracurricular activities is based on 4th-term grades from the previous year. An ineligible student may practice but may not accompany the team or group or be excused from any class for the activity concerned. A student who believes an error has occurred in awarding a grade may appeal to the school principal.
To ensure continued eligibility, monitor student grades using Pinnacle, the FCPS Grades Online system. Log in regularly to check grades and assignments or sign up for e-mail alerts. You choose how often, the day of the week and more.
Extracurricular activities are school-sponsored activities other than regular class activities in which the student represents the school (for example, athletic teams, student clubs or organizations, class or club officers).
