Student Athletes

SHARP Program: Student Help and Remediation Program

  • Only core classes (math, English, science, and social studies) are considered throughout the whole process unless an athlete does not have a full course load. In those situations, an athlete must be passing at least 4 courses to remain eligible.
  • Sharp only applies to athletics.
  • Grades are pulled every Thursday at the end of the day by the Sharp Coordinator once the quarter has been in effect for at least 15 days.
  • Athletes are notified on Friday or Monday if they are on Sharp.
  • Coaches are notified on Thursday or Friday if their athletes are on Sharp.
  • Parents are mailed home a letter on Friday or Monday if their son/daughter is on Sharp.
  • Once on the list, athletes cannot come off until the following Thursday unless a teacher error occurred.

If an athlete is failing one subject: The student is still eligible as long as it is not for four straight weeks. The student is required to attend one of the two study sessions offered from 2:30-3:00 in room 214 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If the student does not attend either session, then the student becomes immediately ineligible until all sessions are made up. In addition, if this failing grade persists for four straight weeks or is a final quarter grade, the student becomes ineligible.

An athlete must still attend the study session even if the grade becomes passing during the week.

If an athlete is failing two subjects: This student is ineligible to practice or play effective Monday through Sunday. The student is required to attend two study sessions offered from 2:30-3:00 in room 214 on Tuesday and Thursday. If the student does not attend either session, then the student remains ineligible until all sessions are made up. In addition, the student will not become eligible until the course grades are a “D” or higher in at least one subject.

An athlete must still attend the study sessions even if the grade(s) becomes passing during the week.

End of Quarter Procedures:

If an athlete is failing a core course at the end of a quarter, the athlete becomes ineligible effective Monday through Sunday. This is true even if the student was not failing the course at any point during the quarter.
