Florida Statute 1006.15 (3)(a) addresses student eligibility to participate in interscholastic extracurricular activities. Specifically the statute reads as follows:
(3)(a) To be eligible to participate in interscholastic extracurricular student activities, a student must:
1. Maintain a grade point average of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale, or its equivalent, in the previous semester or a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above on a 4.0 scale, or its equivalent, in the courses required by s. 1003.43(1).
2. Execute and fulfill the requirements of an academic performance contract between the student, the district school board, the appropriate governing association, and the student's parents, if the student's cumulative grade point average falls below 2.0, or its equivalent, on a 4.0 scale in the courses required by s. 1003.43(1).At a minimum, the contract must require that the student attend summer school, or its graded equivalent, between grades 9 and 10 or grades 10 and 11, as necessary.
To facilitate its role in assisting school districts and students in complying with this statute, FMEA in cooperation with FSMA has developed an Academic Performance Contract for Music Eligibility. This form may be used for any 9th or 10th grade student whose grade point average falls below the required 2.0 cumulative grade point average.
Please note that this contract only covers All-State auditions and participation. For MPA participation, please see the FSMA Academic Performance Contract.
