Curricular vs Extra-Curricular
Concerts are curricular, meaning they are an extension of the classroom. Students learn things at concerts, such as concert etiquette, that cannot be as easily presented in the classroom. All students are eligible to attend and perform at concerts. We want all students to excel academically, however, failure of a class will not prevent them from participating at concerts.
However, contests as well as off campus performances during the school day are extra-curricular. Students must be grade eligible to participate at these events. If they fail the six weeks prior to an event, they are ineligible to attend that event. Students must pass the six weeks prior to the elementary choir tour as well as the Pride of Texas Music Festival in order to attend .
There are some other factors regarding eligibility, such as behavior, that determine a student's eligibility. Office referrals and/or AC placement(s), suspension from school and discipline issues in Skyward will prevent your student from participating, as attendance is an earned privilege. Please know that we will always explain to your child whether or not they are eligible to attend an event.
