Varsity Letter for Interscholastic Extracurricular Activities


In accordance with the provisions of N.J.S.A. 18A:42-7, a school district that includes any of the grades nine through twelve shall adopt a policy to provide a student enrolled in those grades who participates in any school-sponsored, interscholastic extracurricular activity that includes competitions in which the student competes against students enrolled in schools outside of the school district may be eligible to earn a varsity letter awarded by the school district. 

The Board of Education, upon the recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools, shall approve the school-sponsored, interscholastic extracurricular activities that include competitions in which students compete against other students enrolled in schools outside of the school district.  The criteria for a student to earn a varsity letter in the school-sponsored, interscholastic extracurricular activity shall be approved by the Superintendent or designee.

Nothing in N.J.S.A. 18A:42-7 or this Policy shall be construed to require the school district to award varsity letters or to establish any school-sponsored, interscholastic extracurricular activity.
