All students will be subject to KSHSAA eligibility requirements in those activities that are under the sponsorship of KSHSAA. These requirements are as follows:
• The student shall have passed in at least five subjects of unit weight the previous semester of the last semester in attendance.
• The student shall be enrolled in five subjects or courses of unit weight and in attendance during the present semester.
• A first semester high school student’s eligibility is based on middle school eligibility standards (five subjects of unit weight).
Per KSHSAA policy Rule 7: Section 1, all students-athletes are required to have a physical on file to be eligible to participate in interscholastic activities. Any physical taken after May 1st will count toward the following school year (KSHSAA Rule 7: Section1: Art. 5).
Coaches/Sponsors will adhere to the KSHSAA eligibility policy within their own programs. Students that have failing courses are subject to study halls, extended learning opportunities, extra conditioning and other discretionary measures as outlined. No game suspensions or limits on playing time will be imposed due to failing grades, unless a student becomes academically ineligible per KSHSAA guidelines. Eligibility suspensions are handled through Administration and will be communicated to coaches before each semester of any student that did not meet the eligibility requirements outlined above.
