Athletics & Activities

Interscholastic Sports Program

Interscholastic athletics in the Penn Hills School District will be played according to the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (P.I.A.A) Rules. The W.P.I.A.L mandates standards of academic eligibility for all athletes in its member schools. The interscholastic programs include:

Extracurricular Activities

The board believes that the district’s goals and objectives are best achieved by a diversity of learning experiences, some of which are more appropriately conducted outside the regular curricular program of the schools.

All learning experiences offered by the schools, curricular and extracurricular, shall be planned and integrated toward attainment of the district's educational objectives and academic standards.

The Board shall establish that participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege and not a right; therefore, continued participation shall be subject to all Board policies regarding student conduct and extracurricular activities by placing that student on social probation. Social probation is a restriction placed upon a student who fails to demonstrate responsible behavior and who has chosen to violate the district’s / school’s Code of Discipline and Responsibilities, Board policy or the law. The Board may use social probation in conjunction with other disciplinary actions.

For purposes of this policy, extracurricular activities shall be those programs that are sponsored or approved by the Board and are conducted wholly or partly outside the regular school day; are marked by student participation in the processes of initiation, planning, organizing, and execution; and are equally available to all students who voluntarily elect to participate.

The board shall make school facilities, supplies and equipment available and shall assign staff members for the support of extracurricular activities for students. Such availability and assignment shall be in accordance with the Equal Access Act.

Any extracurricular activity shall be considered under the sponsorship of the Board when it has been approved by the Superintendent and report to the Boad for its review. The Board shall maintain the program of extracurricular activities at no cost to participating students, except that:

  1. The Board’s responsibility for the provision of supplies shall carry the same exemptions as listed in the Board’s policy on regular school supplies.
  2. Students may assume all or part of the coast for travel and attendance at extracurricular events and trips. 

Where eligibility requirements are necessary or desirable, the Board shall be informed and must approve the establishment of eligibility standards before they are operable.
