2431 - INTERSCHOLASTIC ATHLETICS

The Board supports and recognizes athletics as an extra-curricular activity that can provide an opportunity for healthy and valuable development for our students. The Board, with support from its administrative staff, recognizes that competing in athletics is not a right but a privilege, and expects athletics to assume their responsibilities in adhering to the athletic policy, approved by the Board and published in the student handbook. Students who are members of athletic teams represent themselves, their school community, parents and team. Conduct at all times, both on and off the athletic field, will be of the highest standard.

The Board supports a code of conduct for coaches and the philosophy that their ability as coaches should be measured not only by games won and lost, but their effect upon the development of the character of the athlete and attitude toward the school, the team and teammates.

The Board is committed to providing equal opportunity to compete in interscholastic athletics for both boys and girls and directs its Superintendent and those responsible for athletic programs to recommend programs that will meet this goal. All interscholastic activities recognized and approved by the Board shall follow the guidelines established by the Michigan High School Athletic Association.

The Grosse Ile Township School District does not provide medical insurance for any of its student athletes. It is highly recommended that parents provide medical insurance for their children participating in a sport.

The Board reserves the right to establish fees to offset the cost of athletics.
