Maximum participation in interscholastic athletics by girls and boys in accordance with interest, maturity, and ability is encouraged wherever the availability of facilities, coaching personnel, and budget permits allow. Therefore a "no-cut" policy is desirable.
Beginning with the class of 2014:
To be eligible for athletic competition during the first semester (September 1 to January 31) of the 10th grade or higher, or the second year of attendance in the secondary school or beyond, a pupil must have passed 25% of the credits (30) required by the State of New Jersey for graduation (120), during the immediately preceding academic year.
To be eligible for athletic competition during the second semester (Feb. 1 to June 30) of the 9th grade or higher, a pupil must have passed the equivalent of 12 ½ % of the credits (15) required by New Jersey for graduation (120) at the close of the preceding semester (Jan. 31). Full-year courses shall be equated as one-half of the total credits to be gained for the full year to determine credits passed during the immediately preceding semester.
In an effort to develop standards which are fair to all students, a review board will be established. The purpose of this review board is to hear appeals from students who are below established criteria, and are seeking continued participation in interscholastic sports.
- all incoming Freshman are eligible for the fall season
- Seniors only, ggraduating in 2013, have to maintain 27.5 credits entering into the senior fall season. Winter eligibility is established at 13.75 credits. This ends with the class of 2014.
