Academic Eligibility:

This policy affects the following activities, but is not limited to them; Athletics, L P P, field trips, F F A, Envirothon, dances, Booster Club events (cheer competition/soccer tournaments), musicals, Odyssey of the Mind, plays, and attending games/school events.  The administration has the right to add events to the list that take place on the O V C S campus or are sponsored by the School District.  Students on ineligibility lists may not participate in co-curricular activities including any away events.  

The Otselic Valley School District recognizes that academic success should be the goal of ALL students.  The purpose for attending school is to receive an education.  As a student-athlete, performer, or member of a club, you must plan your schedule so that you give sufficient time and energy to ensure acceptable grades.  The following is a list of expectations and consequences for failure to receive acceptable grades.

High School Eligibility (grades 9-12):

The purpose of this policy is to encourage and promote student achievement and set guidelines for student eligibility for school sponsored extra-curricular activities and sports.  

Student grades will be checked via School Tool at each five-week point throughout the school year.  Reports will be generated by the administration.

In the High School, a student with two failures in a five-week marking period is placed on probation.  They should seek out extra help in the subjects they are failing and will not be allowed to leave study halls.  A high school student with two failures in two consecutive five-week periods, will become ineligible.  When a high school student becomes ineligible, he/she cannot participate in ANY extra-curricular activity or sport for the next five-week marking period.  Any student failing three subjects or more becomes ineligible for the next five-week marking period.  At the conclusion of the five-week period, grades are revisited and the high school student with one failure or no failures, would become eligible to participate in extra-curricular activities again.

Procedures:

If a student is failing two subjects in a five-week period, he/she is placed on probation and a letter and phone call will go out to the parent/guardian by the principal, athletic director, or dean of students.  If a student fails any two subjects once again after the next five weeks (or is failing three or more subjects during any five-week period), he/she would be ineligible for the following five-week period.  A letter and phone call would then go home to inform the parent/guardian that their child has become ineligible for the next five weeks.  This can be done by the principal, athletic director, or dean of students.  Reports will be generated every 5 weeks by the administration.

Students that are ineligible are required to attend lunch time study halls.  While in lunch time study hall, the student must cooperate with all rules and productively complete assigned class work and homework.  They will get their lunch and immediately report to the study hall and begin working while eating.  There will be no talking, no phones and no fooling around.  

Note:  The determination for failing grades is based on five-week and ten-week marking periods throughout the year and NOT final grades.  At the end of the school year, a student could be on probation or ineligible based on 4th quarter grades.  If the student is deemed ineligible at that time, he/she will begin the next school year with that status (which prohibits participation in fall sports and extra-curricular activities that may begin in the summer.)  This status can only be changed if the student successfully completes summer school.  (Passing the course with a passing final grade does not make the student eligible; the student must complete summer school to be eligible to participate in any fall activities.)

After each five-week period, the dean of students will generate a list of students that are on probation or are ineligible to participate in sports and extra-curricular activities.  The list will be distributed to appropriate faculty, coaches, and club advisors.  It is the responsibility of the coaches and advisors to check the list to be sure only eligible students are participating during any five-week period.

Middle School Eligibility (grades 7-8):


The purpose of this policy is to encourage and promote student achievement and set guidelines for student eligibility in school sponsored extra-curricular activities and sports.  This policy will only apply to students in grades 7 and 8.  All students will be required to attend a 10th period study hall daily, regardless of their academic standing. This will allow us to provide extra support where needed.

Student grades will be checked via School Tool at each five-week point throughout the school year.  Reports will be generated by the administration.

Any Middle School student failing two or more classes at the five-week period will be required to attend lunch time study halls.  Students will be allowed to attend clubs, practices, or games, etc., after their assigned study halls are completed.  Failure to attend an assigned lunch time study hall will result in loss of after school privileges until completion of assigned study times.  Study hall teachers will keep attendance and let coaches/advisors know if someone has not attended.

While in lunch time study hall, the student must cooperate with all rules and productively complete assigned class work and homework.  They will get their lunch and immediately report to the study hall and begin working while eating.  There will be no talking, no phones, and no fooling around.  Students who attend their assigned study hall and follow the rules described above will be considered eligible to participate in extra- curricular activities and sports.  Students who do not attend their assigned study hall or do not behave appropriately or complete work in study hall will NOT be eligible for extra-curricular activities and sports.  They will be ineligible for the remainder of the five-week marking period.

Middle School grades will be checked at the end of each five-week marking period.  If a student is failing one or fewer courses, he/she will NOT be required to attend lunch time study halls but may choose to do so.  He or she will be considered eligible for extra-curricular activities and sports.

Middle School students will start fresh every September (during 7th and 8th grades) and will not be penalized for the prior year’s grades.    

Alcohol and Drug Use

It is clearly understood that the use of tobacco products and/or electronic cigarettes or vapes, the consumption of alcoholic beverages, and the use of illegal drugs is dangerous to the health and general maturation of the adolescent and impacts negatively on a student-athlete’s ability to perform. Therefore: Athletes are not to possess, be in the presence of, or use alcohol, tobacco products, marijuana products, illegal drugs, or misuse prescription or nonprescription drugs/inhalants on or off school grounds.

First Offense:
•    The athlete will be suspended for a minimum of one-third of the total games.
•    The athlete will attend practices and athletic contests but may not dress or participate in any contests.
•    If the athlete is a team captain, the captain shall lose that privilege for the remainder of the season.
•    At the end of the season, a student who is completing a disciplinary action as a result of a violation of any rules shall be sanctioned for the remaining penalty (ies) in the next subsequent sport played. The athletic director shall determine the remaining contest(s) to be missed.

Second Offense:
•    The athlete will be suspended for one year for from interscholastic athletics.
•    The athlete will forfeit any awards they may receive for that season.
•    The athlete may be required to participate and complete a school-provided counseling program before being reinstated.

Athletic Code of Conduct: Expectations of Student Athletes
•    Be a good student and be respectful of teachers, staff, and classmates.
•    Complete and hand in all paperwork prior to the start of each season.
•    Attend all practices.
•    Follow all school rules and athletic training rules.
•    Communicate practice and game schedules with parents.
•    Display sportsmanship toward opponents, officials, spectators, and coaches.
•    Report all injuries to your coaches immediately.
•    Be a team player.
•    Have fun and represent Otselic Valley Central School with pride.

Athletic Philosophy
Interscholastic athletics play an important role in the educational program of our student-athletes and Otselic Valley Central School and we encourage their success in the classroom as well as on the field. In addition, we strive to teach the concepts of hard work, dedication, and commitment. Participation in athletics at the high school level has been shown to help students develop both basic and life skills, learn morals and values, develop self-discipline and self-esteem, and practice positive sportsmanship, thus improving their academic performance and preparation for life challenges.

Interscholastic Sports Offered at Otselic Valley Central School

FALL: Modified and varsity boys and girls soccer
WINTER: Modified and varsity boys and girls basketball
SPING: Modified and varsity baseball and softball

Objectives of the Interscholastic Sports Program
Modified (Grades 7 and 8) (9*)
    This program of competitive sports focuses on the fundamentals of the game, team play, understanding of the rules, importance of physical and mental training, and skills development. At this introductory level a large emphasis is placed on academics, sportsmanship, chemical-free lifestyle, and physical and emotional growth. A smaller emphasis is placed on winning, and a larger emphasis is placed on participation.

Ninth grade students may participate at the modified level based on their skill level as decided by the varsity coach, the parent/guardian, or the athletic director.

Junior Varsity (J V)
    This program places increased emphasis on team play, physical conditioning, refinement of basic skills, and understanding how the individual fits a team rule. Winning at the junior varsity level is considered important; however, learning to cope with game situations and how to accept winning and losing with respect are also important. Maximum participation is important; however, not all participants may play equally in each contest.

Varsity
    The varsity level of athletic competition is the pinnacle of the high school athletic program. At this level there is a strong emphasis placed on winning but not on winning at all costs. There continues to be a strong emphasis on academics, sportsmanship, and a chemical-free lifestyle. Team play, physical ability, motivation, mental attitude, and understanding your role are important aspects of competition at this level. Varsity contestants are expected to accept the fact that important lessons are to be learned from winning and losing. It is understood that all participants may not play in every contest.

Spectators Code of Conduct
STATEMENT OF PHILOSOPHY
The member schools encourage the attendance of students, parents, and interested members of the community at all athletic events. We further encourage their active support of these programs by participating in those activities which lend themselves to stimulating student achievement, good sportsmanship, and school spirit. These activities should be positive in nature and within the guidelines of Section 3 code of conduct. It is not our intent to reduce the involvement of spectators or the enjoyment of those who participate. Rather, it is our goal to create an atmosphere which is conducive to healthy athletic competition, is safe for those involved, and which provides the ideals of sportsmanship and sound educational practices.

SPECTATOR CODE OF CONDUCT (Violators of this code are subject to eviction from the site).

8.    Spectators shall respect and obey all school officials, supervisors, and police at all athletic contests.
9.    Entrance into a sporting event is a privilege not a right. Please demonstrate positive sportsmanship. Be modest in victory and gracious in defeat.
10.    Be a “team” fan not a “my kid” fan.
