MIAA Induction Workshop 10-15-0823

24 GOOD CITIZEN RULE 63 63.1Student-athletes may not represent their school if they are on in-house or out-of-house disciplinary suspension. A suspended student is ineligible for practice or competition for at least the number of days (or partial days) equal to the number of days of the suspension. Local policies will determine the actual days of ineligibility. (The Board of Directors suggests that policies be included in local Student Handbooks.) MIAA Induction Workshop 10-15-0824

25 WORTH REMEMBERING 1.Grade point averages (GPA) of students improve during seasons in which they are participating in athletics. 2.Overall 65% of all students are participants in MIAA interscholastic athletic programs. 3.Student-athletes have higher attendance and graduation rates than non-athletes. 4.95% of corporate officers report that they had participated in high school athletics. 5.High school athletic programs are cost effective. They typically make up one to three percent of the local school budget. 6.High school activity programs often represent the best drop-out prevention, crisis intervention, day care, and drug prevention programs which a community can offer, and the cost per student is minimal. 7.If school activity programs are to be justified they must contain fundamental educational components. Be certain such is the case in your school. MIAA Induction Workshop 10-15-0825
