Student Athlete Credit Eligibility

The Board of Education requires a minimum of 43 credits in grades 9-12 in order to graduate. In order to be eligible to participate in athletics, students must meet a minimum number of total credits as well as a minimum number of credits in core areas (English, math, social studies and science). Student-athletes at Stillwater Area High School will be considered Fully Eligible, Probationary, or Ineligible based on their credit status as outlined in the table below.

Probationary student-athletes will be monitored on a weekly basis by teachers and coaches. During the probationary period, it is expected that the student- athlete pass all classes taken for credit during that semester. If there is a “F” grade at any point in the semester, the student-athlete will be ineligible for practices and competitions until all classes are passing. A contract will be written for the student-athlete and signed by the student, his or her parent, and a school official.

Ineligible student-athletes will not be able to participate (sign up) for athletics until the probationary standard has been met. Students who are Ineligible by credit standing may earn Probationary status provided they have completed five credits the previous semester.
