Tipp may require a minimum GPA for all activities
TIPP CITY — To participate in high school athletics next school year, students will be required to achieve a 1.5 grade-point average to be eligible. It’s possible they won’t be alone when it comes to having to meet eligibility requirements.

Superintendent John Kronour told the Tipp City Schools Board of Education he’s considering recommending the district require students participating in all extracurricular activities meet eligibility requirements. His recommendation should come yet this summer, Kronour said Monday, June 22.

The board engaged in a lengthy discussion on the proposal to increase the athletic eligibility GPA from a 1.3 to a 1.5. The GPA last was raised — from 1 to 1.3 — for the 2007-08 school year.
