HARDSHIP APPEAL FOR VARSITY

 
Students entering 9th grade and attending his or her resident school are eligible for any level of competition at the high school. If the student is attending a non-resident high school with an in-district waiver, the student is restricted from varsity eligibility for one calendar year. In cases that meet the hardship definition, students may appeal the varsity eligibility restriction.

WIAA Hardship Definition
A hardship exists only when some unique circumstances concerning the student’s physical or emotional status exist and only when such circumstances are not the result of acts or actions by the student or family unit. Usual maturation problems or family situations that do not cause severe and abnormal emotional problems and academic or athletic deficiencies in a school’s curriculum or extracurricular activities do not constitute a hardship. (See WIAA Handbook Article 18.25) 
 
 

NINTH GRADE ELIGIBILITY FOR IN-DISTRICT WAIVER STUDENTS

  3. Subsequent years of waiver status must be applied for on a year to year basis
