DRUG FREE SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES ACT

The unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol by students or school employees on school premises or as a part, of any school activity is prohibited. This policy is required by the 1989 amendments to the Drug Free School and Communities Act, P.L. 102-226.

PHILOSOPHY

Extra-curricular activities are an important part in a complete middle and senior high school program as the Kansas State High School Activities Association suggests in its mission statement.

GOALS THAT INFLUENCE STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES

The Kansas State High School Activities Association advocates principles and sponsors services which assure that the state’s middle level and high school students gain a balanced preparation for life, work, and post-secondary education.


PRINCIPLES ON WHICH INTENDED OUTCOMES ARE BASED

Principles advocated by the association are promotion of scholastic achievement as a fundamental basis for a well-balanced activity program, and development of effective citizenship through the practice of good sportsmanship.


SERVICES TO ACCOMPLISH THE MISSION

Services provided by the association are:



  1. Sponsorship of educational workshops, seminars, conferences and publications designed to inform and positively influence students, parents, educators and community members in accordance with organizational principles;

  2. Administration of a program of interscholastic activities, festivals, clinics and contests among member schools;

  3. Protection of member schools from exploitation by special interest groups; and

  4. Communication with policy-making bodies to influence decisions consistent with association principles and operational standards.

Approved by the Kansas State High School Activities Association Board of Directors and the Kansas State Board of Education, in the fall of 1992, to be included in the Bylaws of the KSHSAA handbook.
PURPOSE

Our purpose is to help the total development of our students, helping them to find themselves in relation to the world around them. We feel that extra classes and special activities can help a student reach the goal of the total student. Activities promote a student’s identification with his/her school and help provide pride toward it.

It is the responsibility of the sponsors, coaches, and administrators of Ell-Saline Middle and Senior High School to promote the belief that activities do teach such virtues as self-discipline respect for authority, discipline, dedication, how to compete, how to win and lose, how to be compassionate, how to cooperate, how to act under pressure, and how to strive to be healthy in mind, body and spirit.

PLAYING PHILOSOPHY

All students should be accorded the opportunity to try out and participate for athletic teams. As a result “cutting” players from squads at either the high school or middle school level will not take place.
At the high school level of competition, it is expected that the dominant philosophy will be one of playing to win. Good sportsmanship and healthy competition is encouraged and it is expected that the coach will use his/her judgement to play those players he/she feel will help the team be successful in competition.
At the middle school level, it is expected that the philosophy will be one of playing to win using as many players as possible. If large numbers of participants are present, some students may not dress out for every contest. Even when a student dresses out, that student will not have an inherent right to participate in the contest. While it is recognized that support of many team members is necessary for the overall success of the team, it will be left up to the coach to determine who and how much time different players receive on the field/court at each contest.
“B” contests will be scheduled to let those players of lesser levels of skill have an opportunity to gain experience.
