IRON COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES CONTRACT

Participation in extra curricular activities is a privilege, not an entitlement.  The extent of student participation shall be determined by the teachers or coach responsible for each activity without pressure or coercion of any kind from outside parties.

As a student participating in extra curricular activities in the Iron County School District I understand that I will be representing my school and myself.  I understand that extra curricular activities greatly enhance my educational experience but do not replace or take precedence over my academic program.  I further understand that participation in extra curricular activities in the Iron County School District is a choice that I have made with the knowledge that I will be held to a high standard of sportsmanship, citizenship, and character.  I agree to follow the requirements for participation listed below and understand the consequences for not following them.

Consequence:  No Dressing for or participation in that day's activity.
