San Diego Unified School
District participates in the California Interscholastic Federation
(CIF). Our schools have agreed to maintain the ethical standards created
by the CIF and to abide by CIF regulations. Participation in the
interscholastic athletics, governed by the CIF, is a privilege and may
be negatively affected by a student’s or parent’s decision to transfer
to another school. For any questions regarding athletic eligibility,
please contact your school’s vice principal in charge of athletics or
the school athletic director.
district requires a minimum of a 2.0 academic and 2.0 citizenship grade
point average to be eligible for athletics and extracurricular
activities. Students must have a passing grade in a minimum of four
classes to be eligible for athletics. A grade of "NC" (no credit) counts
as an "F" for athletic eligibility.
Under state law, school districts are required to ensure that all members of school athletic teams have accidental injury insurance that covers medical and hospital expenses. The insurance requirement can be met by the school district offering insurance or other health benefits that cover medical and hospital expenses (Education code Section 32221.5).
