The Interscholastic Athletics and Student Activities’ programs support the Cleveland Metropolitan School District’s overall goal of becoming a premier school district in the United States of America. Extracurricular activities and academics go hand-in-hand as we require students, staff and parents to address the following standards in order to participate in these programs:
- High standards/rigorous curriculum – The Cleveland Board of Education adopted guidelines for student athletic and extracurricular eligibility, during the 1999-2000 school year. The guidelines indicate that students in Interscholastic Athletics, and extracurricular activities, including band, music, drama, and dance, must achieve a 2.00 GPA, and no “F’s” in each semester.
- Promote extracurricular activities for students – specifically through increasing the number of students participating in extracurricular activities, by creating a variety of city-wide artistic groups and by expanding the variety of offerings available to students.
- Student participation will be linked to student achievement – in an effort to confirm the effects of student involvement on student academic performance.
