YEAR-ROUND EXTRACURRICULAR CONDUCT CODE
REVISED September 15, 2010
All extracurricular participants at Lowellville Schools are to conduct themselves with regard to both the student conduct code and extracurricular rules and regulations. Violations of student conduct code and/or extracurricular rules may lead to denial of further participation in team practice(s), contest(s), or other penalties.
The following behavior may result in denial of participation:
1. Absence or tardiness to practice or game
2. Attitude or behavior detrimental to the team
3. Drug, tobacco, and alcohol policy (see below)
4. Athletic safety rules violation
5. Curfew violation
6. Violation of eligibility standards as directed by the OHSAA
7. Specific rules and regulations as prescribed by the coach
8. Violation of transportation regulations. Team members are never permitted to drive to out-of-town scrimmages or contests. Student athletes are expected to ride to and from the event on the team bus. An exception may be made for a student to ride to and from an event with a parent or guardian when a written request from the parent or guardian is given to the coach at least the morning of the event. The coach may or may not approve the request at his/her own discretion.
All participants in extracurricular activities shall receive a copy of the Extracurricular Code prior to the start of pre-season practice. Sponsors and coaches shall have on file the signed Extracurricular Code and rules and regulations for all team members. The Code shall be signed by the sponsor/coach, athlete, and parent. Refusal to sign the Code does not exclude that particular participant from the penalties outlined below.
DRUG, ALCOHOL, AND TOBACCO POLICY
This policy is intended to deal with high school students in grades 9-12, and has been established to deal with offenses accumulatively starting with grades 9-12. Grades 7 and 8 offenders will be dealt with on an individual basis.
This policy deals with possession, use, selling, offering to sell, delivering or possessing drugs, or concealing any instruments or paraphernalia for use with drug abuse.
Drugs of abuse include, but are not limited to, all narcotics, hallucinogens, stimulants, depressants, and alcoholic beverages, as well as tobacco.
When offenses occur, the following penalties will be applied:
1st Offense: Denial of participation for the remainder of the season or the next season that student will participate in, excluding a sport of which a student has yet to participate, and applies to those sports only previously available to the student.
(Exception: If professional help is sought and followed, a 20% suspension of that season or the next season that student will participate in will occur. Practice may continue.) If help is not sought, the suspension remains in effect.
*If 20% of that season does not remain at the time of the offense, the 20% denial will extend into the next season that the student will participate in.
2nd Offense: Denial of participation for the remainder of the school year.
(Exception: If professional help is sought and followed, a 50% suspension of that season or the next season that student will participate in will occur (excluding a sport of which a student has yet to participate, and applies to those sports only previously available to the student). Practice may continue. If help is not sought, the suspension remains in effect.
*If 50% of that season does not remain at the time of the offense, the 50% denial will extend into the next season that the student will participate in.
3rd Offense: The remainder of the student's extracurricular career is denied.
SPECIAL NOTE: TOURNAMENTS AND PLAYOFFS ARE CONSIDERED A SEPARATE SEASON. THEREFORE, WHATEVER THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF GAMES THAT COULD BE PLAYED TO REACH THE STATE FINALS CONSTITUTES THAT SEASON. Example: IN FOOTBALL THE ENTIRE PLAYOFFS ARE 5 GAMES SO IT WOULD BE 20% OF 5 GAMES OR 50% OF 5 GAMES FOR A SECOND OFFENSE.
