Academic Eligibility

The MCPS policy establishing eligibility standard for participation in extracurricular activities is very clear (Policy IQD, Regulation IQR-RD for Middle School Students). In summary, it reads:

Students in grade 6-12 must maintain a 2.0 grade point average with no more than one “E” in the previous marking period to be eligible to participate in the listed activities.

A student’s report card will state whether he/she is eligible for extra curricular activities. The policy will not apply to 1st quarter for 6th grade students or any student entering MCPS schools for the first time. It also does not apply to students engaged in activities which are extensions of a graded course.
