Dear Jaguar Football Parents
February 16, 2016
RE: 7th Period Academic Tutorial
Jaguar Football is deeply committed to the academic success, and graduation of our student athletes. As you know, students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average (GPA) in order to remain eligible for athletic competition. The NCAA requires a 2.5 GPA in core courses to qualify for an athletic scholarship.
Cabrillo Football is initiating a free program that is open to all student athletes! Starting Tuesday, February 16th, 7th Period Athletic Tutoring will run every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, immediately after school throughout the Spring Semester.
On our team, there are many athletes who do an outstanding job in the classroom. However, others have grade point averages that are considered at-risk. The term “at-risk” refers to players with grades of D or F from last semester, in any core subject (English, History, Math, or Science). For “at-risk” players, 7th Period Tutoring is strongly encouraged and can be most beneficial! While in the eyes of district, such a program is voluntary, but as parents, we hope you would make your son’s participation mandatory. I ask for your support. Please reinforce to your son, The Jaguar Scholar-Athlete Priority that “Student” comes before “Athlete.”
Jaguar Football will continue to monitor your son’s class attendance and school work throughout the semester and encourage athletes to take advantage of these additional learning opportunities and educational services.
The Athletic Tutorial program is run by certificated teachers from Cabrillo’s faculty. Athletic Tutorial can also refer selected students to the already established Math Intervention that runs every 7th period, Tuesday and Thursday. The tutorial staff will be in constant communication with each player’s teachers to assist with homework and facilitate completion of missing assignments. To promote accountability, attendance will be taken at the start and end of 7th period. As coaches, we will track your son’s attendance and participation. Tutorial runs from 2:50 to 3:45 PM and will not conflict with the start of 4 PM football practices.
Feel free to contact me with any questions, suggestions, and concerns. Please help us encourage your son to compete both on the field and in the class room, and understand that he is accountable to himself, his family, and his team!
