Academic Support – Clarifying Info
- Every coach will have access to the current grades of their athletes.
- Every IPR date we will identify athletes that are below a 2.0 GPA. Our office emails the students and the parents to let them know Academic Support (AS) is mandatory.
- When a student is in AS they must remain in it until the next IPR at minimum. If the grades have not improved, they will remain in AS until the next IPR…and so on.
- A student may still participate in games while they are in AS as long as they are attending 2 sessions a week
- Sessions are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00-4:00 in room 160. If there are conflicts with games, student can choose make up sessions on Mondays or Wednesdays from 3:00-4:00 in room 160.
- Tuesdays through Thursdays there is another opportunity to make up sessions from 7:00-7:55 AM in room 165.
- Danielle Swallow is the lead AS person and she can be a great resource if you have questions about the program.
- If they attend a AS session, they will receive a pass to give to the coach at practice that day.
- On the pass there will be chance for the tutor to comment on the behavior and work ethic of the student (Please take time to stress the importance of that with students)
- If the student has behavior corrected more than once, they will be asked to leave and will have to make up entire session.
- Students must be on time to sessions.
- IF a student shows up for practice late and does not have a pass, they DID NOT attend or got sent out and it does not count.
We believe that to succeed on the field we need to achieve in the classroom first, and to do this we are re-establishing priorities for our future in terms of academics.
Our goal is to make sure students never lose an opportunity to play beyond high school because of grades.
During the recruiting process, college coaches check to make sure students are in good standing. ACT scores and GPA ‘s are immediately analyzed when coaches find an athlete they are interested in, proving GRADES matter!
We need to do our part and with your help we hope to enhance the educational experience here at RHS.
