You didnt read it all the way thru Chugar....The supt can make exceptions for Effort what ever that is.....
Oldtimer, I read in the paper I believe just last week, that the policy was changing as Churgar52 explained as far as considering exceptions, I think this basketball team was formed and went through the whole season under the old policy requiring the boys to maintain at least a B GPA. These same boy had only lost 3 game over the last 3 years under the same policy. You also questioned "the super can make exceptions, whatever that might be...." well, the article explaining the change in the policy was pretty clear in my mind and as Churgar52 stated, even with the change in the policy, the standards in D157 is higher than what the state requires, so it's very obvious to me that D157 puts academics first.
Gee, I hope I never have to change my screen name to old timer or something like that, seems like when you get old you only see the negative or try to make one up if one does not exists.
