Do you put grade requirements in place for your CDE teams? I have a member on my Electricity team who is failing or almost failing 3 classes and I don't feel comfortable taking him out of school 4 times in 2 weeks for practice contests.
I do put grade requirements for my CDE members. I feel that while CDE's are an excellent way to prepare kids for their future, so is school. I think if they're failing a class, they probably shouldn't be skipping school to go to a CDE. If the CDE is not during school, then I would still take them.
Our school's athletic policy applies to everyone, so a student who is failing two or more classes would not be allowed to attend an event. This makes is easy for us, because it is the school's rule, not our department policy; however, I would definitely not feel comfortable taking a student who is failing that many classes.
