SHS Co-Curricular Code of Conduct
SUPERIOR HIGH SCHOOL CO-CURRICULAR CODE OF CONDUCT
Participating in co-curricular activities sponsored by Superior High School is a privilege extended to every student. It is our belief that students electing to participate in such activities must accept the responsibility of conducting themselves in a fashion which reflects positively both on themselves and on the school and its programs. All participants shall follow the rules year round (365 days) in and out of school.
Attendance: A full day of attendance is mandatory on the day of a practice, contest or event. Judgment on special circumstances such as family emergencies, medical or dental appointments, field trips for school or college visits will be left at the discretion of the student’s administrator. The discovery of a violation of this attendance policy on an event or contest day will result in suspension from participation from the next event or contest. It is also mandatory for students to attend the entire day of school following an event unless return to the school was excessively late and absence is approved by the Principal at the request of the activities director.
Academic Eligibility: A student must meet school requirements defining a full-time student and have received no failing grades in the most recent 18-week grade-reporting period (Semester 1 and Semester 2). A student receiving a failing grade in a grade-reporting period shall be ineligible to participate in above mentioned activities in Group A. (1) A student who becomes academically ineligible may regain eligibility by meeting the academic standard following a period of 15 school days and nights. The student must complete and return the Academic Eligibility Form to the Activities Director to regain eligibility. The Academic Eligibility Form may be picked-up in the Activities Director’s office on the 12th day of ineligibility and must be returned by the 20th day of ineligibility or the student remains ineligible for the remainder of the grading period. (2) A student receiving an incomplete grade is ineligible but regains eligibility immediately upon successful make-up of the incomplete course(s). NEE’s (Not Enough Evidence) must be made up within two (2) weeks after a grade-reporting period. The student must demonstrate to the Activities Director the successful completion of a recorded NEE. (3) A student may erase eligibility status following the last grade-reporting period of the school year through summer school courses (including correspondence courses) at the same or another school, provided the school gives credit toward graduation requirements. Fall Sports - The minimum ineligibility period shall be the lesser of (1) 21 consecutive calendar days beginning with the date of earliest allowed competition in a sport or (2) one-third of the maximum number of games/meets allowed in a sport (rounded up if one-third results in a fraction).
Note: A student must be academically eligible to serve a code violation.
Spartan Grade Eligibility: Coaches of the activities in Group A will receive Spartan Grade reports every 3 weeks during their season. If a student receives a Spartan Grade of 1 in any class, that student will be ineligible for no less than 24 hours. Students must show evidence of a Spartan Grade of a 2 or 3 before they are eligible to complete.
Code Violations: A student participating in co-curricular activities is governed by this code of conduct 365 days of the year in and out of school. Penalties for violations in Group A of the listed activities will carry over from sport to sport and to the following academic year or season.
A. Out-of-School Suspension (OSS): A students suspended from school will not be eligible to participate in Group A athletic activities for one (1) contest for each day so assigned. If the student is not in an activity at the time of the OSS, the student must meet a restorative plan created by the student, parent and administration before regaining eligibility. If an OSS is the result of a code violation, the greater of the penalties will be enforced.

2. A student may not “work off” a code violation in a co-curricular activity which he/she have not previously participated in. Note: 9th and 10th grade students would be exempt from this rule.
3. To “work off” a code violation penalty, a student must make a team as a participant
and remain on that team for the entire season. A student code violation penalty will be
considered served if he/she are cut from a sport he/she has previously participated in and
he/she do not participate in any other sport that sport season. A junior or senior cut from a
sport that he/she has previously participated in will be released to participate in any other
sport that season even though he/she did not participate in the sport their 9th or 10th grade
years. Any code penalties will need to be served before he/she become eligible to

at their home or property and it is his/her first offense, the penalty automatically becomes his/her
second offense. If it is the student’s second offense, it is automatically his/her third offense.

extending beyond the time penalty assessed for the infraction.
