Clubs and Activities
The administration and faculty of Lancaster High School support the inclusion of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities as part of the educational process for students. We also understand the importance of academic achievement and the need to keep the education of our students as our highest priority. Students must maintain a level of academic success before they can partici-pate in activities and the requirements listed below are meant to ensure that our emphasis is on education, and not to limit a student’s participation.
The following are the requirements for students to participate in an extracurricular activity, such as a club, or dance, or extra curricular school event:
- Be enrolled in classes that earn the student at least 20 credits per semester.
- Have passing grades in the classes they are taking.
- Be on target with their credits earned toward graduation requirements.
- Have earned at least a 2.0 GPA. Quarter grades determine eligibility and have less than 3 unsatisfactory citizenship marks.
End of quarter dates: 10/12/18, 12/21/18, 3/15/19, & 6/6/19
- May not have more than 10 hours of unexcused absences or truancies in two or more classes.
- Have a schedule of at least four (4) hours of class time (or 2 periods) per day to participate in an activity. In cases where an activity is scheduled for a Saturday, students should have attended at least four (4) hours of class time (or 2 periods) on the preceding Friday to participate.
- Students who travel with a club for an activity or field trip must complete and have an Emergency Information Card (pink card) signed by their parent.
- Students and parents/guardians are required to sign the: Club Activities Participation form.
The administration at Lancaster High School may revoke a student’s eligibility should they have poor citizenship or attendance, or the student’s behavior (prior or present) is of a nature considered not conducive to representing his/her school.
District Board Policy (BP 6145.5)
The Board of Trustees believes that student organizations reinforce the instructional program, give students practice in democratic self-government, and provide social and recreational activities. Student organizations also serve to honor outstanding student achievement and enhance school spirit and student’s sense of belonging.
School sponsored student organizations must be organized at the school, have a certificated advisor, be composed completely of current student body members, and be approved by the Superintendent or designee in accordance with Board of Trustees policy. They shall hold the majority of their meetings at school and have a democratic plan for the selection of officers. Organization activities shall not conflict with the authority and responsibilities of school officials.
