INTERSCHOLASTIC ATHLETICS AND EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
(Sanctions)

The following suggested progressive discipline protocol is provided with the intention to align schools in the Boulder Valley School District in addressing student conduct, but does not limit principals’ discretion to assign appropriate consequences. As stated in the Policy, participation in interscholastic athletics and extracurricular activities is a privilege and nothing in the Policy or this regulation creates any rights to participation, unless otherwise created by law.

General Principles

  • Students shall not transfer between schools to avoid penalties.
  • Sanctions carry over from season to season, activity to activity, and year to year, at the discretion of the principal.
  • With athletics, suspensions must be served at the highest level of competition for that athlete as determined by the athletic director. The athlete may not compete in any scrimmage or contest at any level until the suspensions have been served. For example, players who play JV and Varsity must serve their suspensions at the varsity level before regaining eligibility. In order for games to count towards the total, the athlete must complete the season in which the suspension occurred in good standing.
  • If a student is suspended from school, then the student will miss the activities and contests during the period of suspension from school or the assigned percent of total scheduled contests or activities, whichever is more.

First Offense:

The student is suspended for 20 percent of total scheduled contests and activities. Any fractions of games/events/activities are rounded to the nearest whole number.

Second Offense within three Calendar Years:

The student is suspended for 50 percent of total scheduled contests and activities. Any fractions of games/events/activities are rounded to the nearest whole number.

Third Offense within three Calendar Years:

Student will be suspended from participation in all athletics and activities for one calendar year.

For drug/alcohol/tobacco offenses, a student may petition the Principal for reconsideration of eligibility after a period of four months, if the athlete participates in a school approved education, rehabilitation or treatment program and provides appropriate documentation of successful completion of the program.
