CRLS has made increases to the academic guideline requirements
established by the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association
(MIAA) regarding student participation on interscholastic teams. To
participate on a team a student must be carrying a full load of courses,
which is equal to four in our case. Students must pass 3 of 4 (letter
graded) classes, have a GPA of 70 or greater, and if enrolled in
English, Physical Education or Dance courses receive a passing grade. To
be eligible for the Fall marking period, students are required to have
passed and received full credits for the previous academic year the
equivalent of four traditional year long major English courses. To
participate in the Winter and Spring Seasons, a student must secure
during the last marking period preceding the contest (e.g. second
quarter marks and not semester grades determine third quarter
eligibility) a passing grade, and full credit, in the equivalent of four
traditional year long major English courses. In addition a student
cannot at any time represent a CRLS unless that student is taking
courses which would provide Carnegie Units equivalent to four
traditional year long major English courses.
