-Must have minimum 3.0 GPA (term before tryouts, or cumulative) to audition for cheerleading. 

-In order to make grades, cheerleaders need to be in class. 

-The 3.0 must be maintained as a cheerleader.  If the cheerleader receives below a 3.0 GPA on a printed report card the cheerleader will be on probation until the next PRINTED 
report card. (This means she will still attend practice, and games but will not participate.)  If the cheerleader receives below a 3.0 GPA on the next report card, she will be dismissed 
from the squad. 

-To remain eligible cheerleaders may not have any F, NC, or I grades. If you have any of these you will be placed on probation until it is resolved.

-Cheerleaders will be awarded elective credit. This is important to keep in mind for graduation credits.
