The District’s philosophy of athletic competition emphasizes the importance of academic standing and student behavior as prerequisites for participation in sports. The District is committed to providing equal opportunity for all Lancaster students. Coaches and administrators are committed to promoting good citizenship, sportsmanship and accountability. Coaches and athletic department staff work closely with school administrators to assure that students are in good standing and making academic progress in order to participate in sports. The athletic department conducts seasonal meetings with parents to review athletic and academic guidelines for participation.
