Carroll County students who wish to participate in athletics and other extracurricular activities are allowed one failing grade to remaineligible, but students could get by with one F and 4 Ds under the county policy. Some have suggested a more stringent requirement, such as a 2.0 (C) average, but others have said that if the requirements are too tough, some students will take less difficult courses.
Should the school board adopt tougher academic requirements? What should those requirements be? Should the requirements apply to all extracurricular activities or just athletics?
