6700.3: Extracurricular School-Sponsored Clubs & Activities, and Interscholastic Athletics & Activities – Administration

I. The goal for each student participating in extracurricular activities shall be a balanced program of appropriate academic studies and extracurricular school-sponsored clubs and activities and interscholastic athletics and activities, to be determined by the school, the parents, and the students. This should be a shared responsibility.

II. Guidance is necessary to encourage the non-participating students to consider extracurricular school- sponsored clubs and activities and interscholastic athletics and activities, and to prevent the over-enthusiastic students from over-emphasizing clubs, activities, and athletics at the cost of their academic performance.

III. Activities which are for public view are to be kept to the minimum necessary for their educational value. Public performances of the activities are to be supervised in order to prevent excessive time and effort expenditures by students. Public performances may not be held for purposes which contribute to private gain or advantage.

IV. District-wide events shall be approved by the Superintendent or designee.

V. School events should not be scheduled after 5:00 p.m. and should conclude by 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings. Exceptions shall be permitted for district and/or state contest dates determined by the NSAA as well as contest dates determined by the Metro Conference for its tournament schedules.
