Student Athletes & NCAA:

Student Athletes & NCAA Any student-athlete who thinks they may play at the collegiate level, it is very important that you follow the guidelines to insure eligibility. Below you will find a link to information regarding student-athletes and NCAA eligibility. Please note that these requirements change and it is important that you have the most up to date information. www.NCAA.org

Ethics Policy:

Ethics Policy Please familiarize yourself with the MCHS ethics policy which was updated September 2009. The ethics policy can be found in the student tab under policies on our website. We take academic honesty very seriously and actively encourage all of our students to do the same. http://www.miracostahigh.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=75745&type=d

Attendance:

Attendance Attendance is a vital component to successful performance in each and every class. Please encourage good attendance from your student and familiarize yourself with our attendance policy. Please pay close attention to what is defined as an excused and unexcused absence as well as how to clear an absence. The policy may be found on our website in the student section under attendance. http://www.miracostahigh.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=79542&type=d

Discipline:

Discipline While all of our students are wonderful and well behaved, to minimize any lapses in judgment, please familiarize yourselves with the Discipline Matrix. While the matrix is punitive in nature, it may also serve to inform what constitutes a violation and thus help to avoid any infractions. The matrix can be found on our website in the student section under Discipline Matrix. Your cooperation and understanding involving these matters is greatly appreciated. http://www.miracostahigh.org/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=161801&type=d
