No-Pass, No-Play Requirements Change

September 17, 2007

In the last legislative session, Senate Bill 1517 changed the UIL No-Pass, No-Play rule. Starting in the 2007-2008 school year only English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, and Foreign Language classes with Pre AP, AP, or Dual Credit status will meet the criteria for No-Pass, No-Play exemption. The new law will exclude other Pre AP, AP, and Dual Credit classes.

Another change for the current year is a decision made by our local Board of Trustees. Students taking the classes on the exempt list will only be exempt in that class once. If a student fails the same Pre AP, AP, or Dual Credit class a second time, he/she will become ineligible and subject to the same rules for eligibility that other courses follow.

The following classes meet the new criteria for No-Pass, No-Play exemption. Students who fail any of these courses more than once will not be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities.
