Academic Eligibiity

Participation in school athletics and extracurricular activities (ex. BJH musical/play) is a privilege, not an inherent right. This particular privilege is granted if students meet the academic eligibility standards as set forth by Bayless Junior High School and the citizenship guidelines established by the Bayless School District. According to these guidelines, students who represent their school in activities must be credible citizens both in the school and in the community, and be judged so by the proper school authority. In order to tryout for an extracurricular activity and maintain eligibility for the activity, students must have a C average (2.0 Grade Point Average or higher).
