Minimum GPA to play sports
The Maryland State Board of Education is expected to vote tomorrow on whether to require athletes in public high schools to have a 2.0 grade point average to play on a sports team. While school officials are generally in favor of the new standard, which already exists in 16 districts, we wondered if some athletes will be unable to play. The new rule would be advise to school systems and not binding, however, it is expected to become accepted if it is passed by the board.
We are looking for teachers, principals, parents or athletes who are worried about the ramification on teams. We ask that anyone with an example, post a comment or get in touch with me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
