C.I.S.D. and State Rules Governing Extracurricular Activities

Conroe Independent School District policies FM and FM (L) authorize student participation in extracurricular activities and set the minimum standards for eligibility and membership maintenance based on attendance and grades. These policies include minimum HB72 requirements. The complete texts of the policies may be reviewed in your school library; however, selected parts of the policies are presented for your information.

Definition of Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities are school-sponsored activities that are not directly related to instruction of the essential elements, but that may have an indirect relation to some areas of the curriculum. They offer worthwhile and significant contributions to a student's personal, physical, and social development. Participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege and not a right, and students must meet specific requirements in order to participate. Activities may include, but are not limited to, performances, contests, demonstrations, displays, and club activities.

Responsibility for Program

A well-planned student activity program shall be maintained in each school in the District. All student activities shall be under the direction of the principal or a designee and shall be designed to contribute to the overall development of the participant in school-sponsored clubs, organizations, and activities that represent their particular interests.

Maintaining Eligibility

In order to be eligible to participate in a extracurricular activity event for a nine-week period following the initial nine-week period of a school year, a student shall not have a recorded grade average lower than 70 on a scale of 0-100 in any course for the preceding nine-week period.

The time will include the succeeding three-week period until the end of a three-week period during which the student achieves a course grade average for that three-week period of at least 70 in each course. This suspension shall become effective seven days after the last day of the nine-week period during which the grade lower than 70 was earned.

Suspension of a handicapped student whose handicap significantly interferes with the student's ability to meet regular academic standards shall be based on the student's failure to meet the requirements of the students Individual Education Plan, as determined by the ARD committee.

The campus principal may remove this suspension if the class is identified as an honors class or

is an advanced class, as follows:

  1. English/Language/ Arts: English IV Academic (Comp), English IV Academic (British Literature), World Literature, Creative Imaginative Writing, Research Technical Writing, Debate III, Public Speaking III
  2. Other Languages: Other Languages III, Advanced Languages I-V
  3. Social Studies: Advanced Social Science Problems.

  5. Mathematical: Trigonometry, Elementary Analysis, Analytic Geometry, Pre-calculus, Linear Algebra, Calculus.
  6. Science: Physics, Physics II, Chemistry II, Biology II.

Out-of School Practice

Students who are ineligible may participate in after school rehearsals but may not participate in performances during their ineligibility.

Limit on Suspension

A student may not be suspended during the period in which school is recessed for the summer or during the initial grade reporting period of a regular school term on the basis of grades received in the final grade reporting period of the preceding regular school term.

Reinstatement to Extracurricular Activities

At the end of any three-week period, following the initial nine-week period, in which a student attains a course grade average for that three-week period of 70 or more in each course taken, any suspension from out of school rehearsal for extracurricular activities shall be removed.

Rehearsal and Performance Time

Students may rehearse outside the school day in any single extracurricular activity a maximum of eight hours per school week. The eight-hour rule does not include Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.

CAMPUS AND DISTRICT RULES

A Golden Girl shall provide a spirit-promoting service, be loyal, have high morals and standards, be a good example in and out of school, and develop self-discipline and confidence. She shall also have poise, good posture, and present a good appearance. Being a Golden Girl is an honor. In order to be as "good" as our tradition and history warrants, hard work and discipline are basic components of the program. A Golden Girl’s commitment is to both academics and the Golden Girl Organization. If you are not ready to accept this challenge, then Golden Girls may not be for you.

History

The Golden Girls Drill Team was established in 1969 by Mr. J.L. McCullough. Under the direction of Ms. Cynthia Gibson, 25 young ladies became the original Golden Girls that year. The team has continued their tradition of excellence through performance, competitions, community service, and the support of other C.H.S. activities. Over the years, numerous young ladies have been a part of the Golden Girls organization. Today, many second generation Golden Girls make up the team. The Golden Girls have also been under the direction of the following: Dotye Stanford Barnes (1970-1976), Cynthia Head Thompson (1976-1980), Diane Watson Cain (1980-1984), Debbie Melton (1984-1985), Betty Buchner (1985-1991), Danielle Rapp (1991-1998), and Fayla Chambers (1998- ).

The Golden Girls organization is under the direction and supervision of the Director, certified and degreed in dance, who is appointed by the Principal, and approved by the CISD Administration.

Purpose of Organization

Selection and Eligibility

Members are selected by an impartial panel of qualified judges and must audition each year. Any candidate wanting to gain membership to the organization must first meet the eligibility requirements and attend the series of rehearsals prior to the scheduled auditions.

AUDITION ELIGIBILITY

  1. All returning members must audition. This includes Military and Social officers. Being a member of the team does not guarantee reinstatement for the following year.
  2. A candidate may seek membership even if she has failed a course during the previous nine weeks period.

If absent for any reason, all or part of the day, the Golden Girl or her parent(s) must call the Director. A note to excuse the absence is due upon return. Demerits will be issued for not calling or bringing a note.

A member is excused from a performance for the following reasons: death in the family, illness (doctor’s note must be available), wedding in the family, or permission is given by the director on special occasions. A note must be brought in order for any absence to be excused. A member is excused from rehearsal if any of the above occur or an appointment for a doctor is made and a doctor’s note is presented. Two day advance notice to the Director is expected. (If the appointment is during the week of performance, the member canot miss more than one/half of the rehearsal and still perform.)

II. Eligibility for attending afterschool rehearsals and performances

The understudy who was passed up will be eligible for the next appropriate open position.
    2. Understudies are expected to attend and participate in all rehearsals.
    3. If a member loses her spot in a dance, she will be placed into that week's rotation as the last dancer in the rotation. Ex: If there are 10 understudies, the girl who lost her spot will be #11 in the rotation.
    4. The rotation picks up each week with the next dancer in line for that particular dance. The rotation does not go back to #1 until rehearsals for a new dance begin.
    5. A member who was absent and lost her spot the preceding week may reclaim her spot on Monday only of the new week, (or the next school day following Sunday).
    6. If a member who wishes to reclaim her spot is absent on Monday, (or the next school day following Sunday), she moves back to the end of the rotation.
