CODE OF CONDUCT
Student-Athlete Code of Conduct
The Student-Athlete Code of Conduct explains the responsibilities of student athletes and serves as a guide for their conduct. If there are questions about this Code of Conduct or other policies of Cincinnati Public Schools, students should consult their coaches, or school or district administrators.
Responsibilities As A Student
Your responsibility as a student in Cincinnati Public Schools is to make progress toward a high-school diploma.
Your primary goal as a student is to obtain an education and earn a high-school diploma. While time commitments are demanding during your athletic season, you should never lose sight of the goal of completing the requirements needed to graduate. After graduation, we want you to be proud of your academic achievements, which will allow you to pursue a college education or a satisfying career.
To carry out your responsibilities as a student, you must:
Maintain quarterly eligibility.
* Note: Our GPA standards are higher than the minimum GPA (1.0) required by the Ohio High School Athletic Association.
Responsibilities As An Athlete
Your responsibility as an athlete is to represent with integrity the people and values associated with Cincinnati Public Schools.
The athletic program is a highly visible part of Cincinnati Public Schools. As a student athlete, your attitudes, actions and statements constantly are in the public eye and reflect directly on your school and the district. Because of this, you have a special responsibility to represent them well.
As an athlete, you are responsible for promoting the following core values:
To carry out your responsibilities as an athlete, you must:
1. Display good sportsmanship. You are expected to conform to established guidelines of sportsmanlike conduct, both on and off the playing field. Sportsmanlike conduct includes showing respect towards all who are in attendance at an athletic event: officials, coaches, athletes, opponents, spirit squads, spectators and the media. Unsportsmanlike conduct includes inappropriate behavior in language, gesture or action that demeans, physically intimidates or endangers others.
Responsibilities As A Community Member
Your responsibility as a community member is to respect and obey the policies, rules and laws of the community.
Like all students in Cincinnati Public Schools, you are a member of the Cincinnati community. This community expects its members to exhibit respectful and lawful behavior. You have no special rights or privileges that exempt you from penalty.
Enforcement Of Code Of Conduct
Participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege and not a right. Like all students, athletes are expected to obey CPS’ Code of Conduct and Positive School Culture Plan. You are subject to consequences, including the possibility of being removed from the team or activity, for failure to do so. Various CPS officials will enforce the Student-Athlete Code of Conduct, including coaches, school administrators and other authorities of Cincinnati Public Schools.
To carry out your responsibility as a member of this community, you must:
