Students who take part in a Theatrical Society production are making the serious personal commitment that their participation in the production is a priority in their lives.
Parental consent is required for student participation in Theatrical Society productions.
When a student commits to a Theatrical Society production and parents/guardians consents to their child's participation, both parties understand and agree to the following:
Student must be academically eligible to participate in a production.
Members must attain a passing grade in five major subjects by the closing of each marking period to participate. A major subject is defined as a class that meets five times within a rotation.
Any student receiving services under an IEP may be declared academically eligible by the Principal provided that all other eligibility policies are met, and the student is passing four subjects.
Any student passing four major subjects but not five may be declared academically eligible by the Principal provided that they enter into an academic/behavioral contract.
Production Schedule events (rehearsals, set-construction, performances, strike) will take place after-school, evenings, and weekends.
Students may not miss Technical/Dress Rehearsals or Performances.
To participate in after-school activities students must be present in school
Parents and students must document all scheduling conflicts before students receive a position.
After placement, students and parents cannot schedule activities that conflict with the Production Schedule.
Students are required to be present, on-time, and stay for the entirety of Production Schedule events.
If a student has a conflict, the student should notify the advisor beforehand. Their absence may be excused, at the director’s discretion.
If a student arrives ten or more minutes after the event or has begun, the student will be considered absent without an excuse.
After the first unexcused absence the student will be put on probation and will receive a letter of warning from the director.
After a second unexcused absence the student will be removed from their position.
