six Smithson Valley principal Joe Rogers I kept saying it was and now that its they House Bill 72 is It does and were going to have to rise to the occasion and meet its he The State Board of Education set those guidelines last December with a rule that any student failing to make a 70 in any one course would be suspended from play or practice for six That thun derbolt zapped 85 students at and 49 at Canyon into ineligibility when the first six weeks of the spring semester This state who were beseiged by coaches and school officials complaining about the rules asked the state board to ease off

students have shown concern over the effects of education reform HB on academic as well as extracurricular Not many extracurricular activities have been hit hard by the rule at New Braunfels ISD compared to some schools 17 out of the 200 band members could not participate after the last grade period one student in the upcoming UIL OneAct Play contest failed to pass all and similar numbers were found in athletics and Probably the hardest hit was those students preparing for the Comal County Youth Show eight students in the ag program could not participate after spending all some a on feeding and care of an The real shame about this is the Youth Show has nothing to do with school and this is a one time Those with steers put in a whole year of effort and not have anything to show for agriculture teacher James Garrett They could not auction the animal so the parents and students have to bear a financial burden as We are afraid this is going to affect CISD NBISD In the 134 CISD students cant par ticipate in band and choir until they get their next report Ann a business teacher at Smithson said the noplay rule is hurting those students who are Its not doing poo to the kids who just walk in and out the I think House Bill 72 is a step toward the fine goal of improving the quality of I want to achieve that but at what cost is my said Kathy the social studies department head at The price were paying now is the wellrounded SVHS football coach Stan Irvine A good coach stresses education comes and weve been doing that for But there are things to be learned in extracurricular activities that cant be picked up in a We hope those who participate learn to give that 110 learn to make Irvine Were trying to develop to make men out of boys and women out of so they can face life when they leave this We dont just try to win the Irvine said he thinks the state board is picking on Why not call it noparticipate Right people think of athletics when you say But its work preparing for a football or getting an animal ready for a livestock Just ask CHS vocationalag teacher Wesley See Page 6A the ag Who will risk all of that time if he is not a strong student Garrett The two local districts interpreted the rule dif ferently regarding the Youth New Braunfels ISD would not allow its agriculture students who were failing a course to Failing students at Comal ISD were allowed to We NBISD will try to adhere to the letter of the Chuck assistant principal at New Braunfels But there is no teeth in this so the only ones hurt are those who try to obey the Algebra teacher and tennis coach Johnie like many found no problem with the five excused absenses in a semester We are already seeing many benefits of HB 72 Students are not missing classes for a tightening down on discipline and but a sixweek penalty is too This was an over reaction from the toolax rules we were Hauk Several pointed out the end result of the no no play rule was to discourage students from attempting courses that they were not certain they could do well such as accelerated or honors courses or advanced math I learn just as much in the extracurrcular activities that I have
