Athletic Information

Competitive athletics are a part of the overall educational opportunities presented to the students of Modesto City Schools. The nature of competitive sports lends itself to attracting and servicing the more physically-talented student; however, all students have the opportunity to try out for the various teams. MCS coaches are sensitive to the variety of racial, ethnic, socioeconomic and religious orientations of our student athlete and they make every effort to assimilate and include all players into the team framework.

Throughout the program, and at all levels of competition, special effort is given so that each athlete will have an opportunity to develop the traits of responsibility, sound values, team work, sportsmanship, leadership, honesty, discipline and physical fitness. We believe that competitive athletics is an arena where students can grow mentally, physically, emotionally, and socially.

Victory With Honor

Modesto City Schools joins the California Interscholastic Federation in recognizing that athletics are an important component of the educational experience and that the benefits of participation go beyond the final score of a game. Coaches have the responsibility to ensure that the academic, social, emotional, physical, and ethical well-being of student-athletes is always placed above desires and pressures to win. By promoting good sportsmanship, coaches will set a positive example for all participants and fans. This Code of Conduct applies to all full-time and part-time coaches.

It is the responsibility of every coach to instill the values of “Pursuing Victory with Honor” and communicate to student-athletes and their parents that athletic participation is a privilege, not a right. To earn that privilege, student-athletes must abide by the rules and conduct themselves, on and off the field, as role models who exemplify good character.

Athletics

Interscholastic athletics are an integral part of the educational program and are designed to have a positive influence on students. Our athletic program supports student participation in multiple sports and promotes equal opportunities and experiences for all students, male and female. In addition to athletic skill development, we are charged with the responsibility of instilling in our athlete's proper attitudes and behaviors that reflect the ideas of citizenship, sportsmanship, and cooperation, as well as building self-discipline and self-esteem.

Academic Eligibility

In order for a pupil to participate in extra-curricular activities, the pupil shall achieve a grade point average of 2.0 with no more than one "F" and show maintenance of minimal progress towards meeting the high school graduation requirements prescribed by the governing board in each grading period preceding the quarter of participation in the extra-curricular activities. Initial high school eligibility will be based upon the 8th grade, second-semester grades.

The eligibility grading periods shall be the first quarter, first semester, third quarter, and second semester.

The grading periods shall be considered consecutive and uninterrupted. Therefore, the second-semester grade of the previous year shall be the basis for determining the first quarter eligibility for the following year.

NOTE: ATTENDANCE, SUBSTANCE ABUSE, BEHAVIOR, AND CLASSROOM CITIZENSHIP ELIGIBILITY CONSEQUENCES SHALL NOT CARRY OVER FROM JUNIOR HIGH TO HIGH SCHOOL.

9-12 Summer School Grades - Effect on Eligibility

  • Summer school grades shall be included to determine eligibility.

  • In calculating eligibility, a summer school grade will replace the grade of a "like" course taken previously.

  • Grades/units earned in summer school classes which do not replace grades earned previously in "like" courses will be averaged with grades from the previous grading period (semester in grades 9-12).

  • Summer school grades shall not impair a student's academic eligibility achieved in the previous grading period (semester in grades 9-12).

NOTE: THIS ACADEMIC REQUIREMENT APPLIES TO EIGHTH GRADE STUDENTS ENTERING THE NINTH GRADE.
