Extracurricular Activity Absences

In a School Year

The District shall make no distinction between absences for UIL activities and absences for other extracurricular activities approved by the Board. A student shall be allowed a maximum of 15 absences in a school year for extracurricular activities.

Additional absences, to a maximum of five shall be permitted for competition above district level.

Competitive Tryouts

In any extracurricular activity for which judges or appraisers make written evaluations or use other written scoring materials during tryouts, the judges or appraisers shall not remain anonymous. The written materials shall identify judges or appraisers either by name or by a numeric code.

The sponsor of such an activity shall develop written guidelines for evaluating or scoring the students and for communicating the results to students and parents. These guidelines shall be approved by the principal and distributed to students and parents prior to the tryouts. Each student and parent shall sign an acknowledgement of having received the guidelines.

Completed evaluations and other written scoring materials shall be available for review by parents, in accordance with law. [See FL]
