OKLAHOMA SECONDARY SCHOOLS ACTIVITIES ASSOCIATION TULSA PUBLIC SCHOOLS ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY GUIDELINES
A student must have received a passing grade in any five subjects that he/she was enrolled in during the last semester he/she attended fifteen or more days.
If a student does not meet the minimum scholastic standard he/she will not be eligible to participate during the first six weeks of the following semester. Ineligible athletes may practice; however, they may not participate in games or scrimmages. Suiting up is considered having participated.
A student who did not meet the minimum academic standard may regain his/her eligibility by achieving passing grades in all subjects he/she is enrolled in, at the end of a six-week period. If the ineligible student is passing all classes on this date, he/she has regained their academic eligibility and may participate without restriction.
Weekly eligibility for students will be checked after three weeks (during the fourth week) of a semester and each succeeding week thereafter.
If a student is not passing all classes on the day of the grade check, he/she will be placed on probation for the next one-week period. If a student is still failing one or more classes during the next week on the grade check day, he/she will be ineligible to participate during the next one-week period.
The period of probation and ineligibility will always begin on Monday and end on Sunday.
Any student who reaches his/her fifteenth birthday before September 1st will not be eligible for athletic participation in the eighth grade or below. Any student who reaches his/her fourteenth birthday before September 1st will not be eligible for athletic participation in the seventh grade or below. Any student who reaches his/her thirteenth birthday before September 1st will not be eligible for athletic participation in the sixth grade or below.
