Extra-Curricular Activity Participation
At Green Canyon High School we believe that participation in extra-curricular activities are an important part of a student’s overall educational experience. We want students to perform well both inside and outside the classroom. The following minimum guidelines apply to all UHSSA activities and is the recommended for all extra-curricular activities at Green Canyon High School including clubs, organizations, etc. Coaches and advisors have the option to increase these requirements if approved with the administration and well published.
All Green Canyon High School students participating in events sponsored by the Utah High School Activities Association must maintain 90% attendance and have fewer than 10% tardies at any given time during a trimester in in which they are participating, they will be placed on probation.
To be eligible to participate in events sponsored by the Utah High School Activities Association, a student must maintain a 2.0 GPA and receive no more than one failing grades or two No Grade (NG) in the preceding trimester in which the student is participating. If a student is receiving more than one failing grade at any time during a trimester in which they are participating, they will be placed on probation.
ALL School Fees (i.e. registration, extra-curricular, class fees) must be paid in full for a student to be eligible to participate in extra-curricular activities (UHSAA), Organizations, Associations, Curricular Clubs, etc.). Fees must be current for a student to try-out for an activity. Fees for an activity are due once the student has been selected as a participant. The only exceptions are for those students who are on fee waiver or who have prior, documented administrative approval. Students must be current any prearranged payment plans.
Probation means, the student will miss the next scheduled game, or event and all subsequent events until they are released from probation. A student is released from probation when the student has met the eligibility requirements set forth in the preceding paragraphs.
Truant behavior will not be tolerated. Following are the minimum consequences for truant behavior. Truant behavior is anytime a student leaves home for school, but does not arrive; comes to school, but doesn’t not attend; leaves school without checking out properly; or obtains permission to go to a certain place, but does not report there.
If a student is found by a law enforcement officer or school official to be “truant”, at any time, the student may be issued a truancy citation or the absence may be logged as a truant in PowerSchool. A truancy citation or logged truancy for a student participating in UHSAA activities results in the following:
- The first violation will result in suspension for eligibility for one week.
- The second violation will resulting suspension of eligibility for one trimester.
Students may appeal probation or eligibility decisions by scheduling a meeting with the Athletic Director. According to Utah High School Activities Association policy, no eligibility appeals are allowed one a grade has been posted.
