TCSD Eligibility Check Dates 2019-20:
November 1, December 9, January 10, January 27, February 13, and March 17.
Teton County School District #1
The Club partners with the administrations of Jackson Hole High School and Jackson Hole Middle School to develop academic scheduling that maximizes student time both in the classroom and on snow.
At JHHS, the Early-Release Program carefully considers the needs of student athletes by grade and sport and allows for early release for athletes in good academic standing from mid November through the end of their competitive seasons. Nordic athletes may release at 3:10 on Wednesdays and Fridays in September-November for dryland training and at 2:40 in the winter months for training at Trail Creek Nordic Center. Alpine and Freeride athletes may release between two and four days/week in the winter season depending on their program level. For details by grade, please see the JHHS-JHSC Programming document.
In order to be eligible for Early Release in November, JHHS students and parents must sign and complete the following Early-Release Contract and Records Release and submit them to the Assistant Principal, Dan Abraham, ideally by November 1. Students will not be eligible for early release until the forms are submitted:
At JHMS, students are eligible for early release from November 19, 2018-March 22. 2019. Students release on training days at 2:55, near the end of their 5th class session, and they are excused from FLEX on training days. On non-training days, student athletes are expected to attend their entire FLEX period. Further details about the program and student-athlete expectations are available here.
Jackson Hole Community School
The Jackson Hole Community School is committed to helping student athletes benefit from an exceptional academic experience while simultaneously pursuing their athletic goals at the highest level. In order to do so, they continue a tradition of consistent communication with JHSC to foster an understanding of each student-athlete's unique needs and goals. They offer JHSC athletes a number of scheduling and support accommodations, including
Early-morning CORE classes to ensure that students can attend all of their core classes every day
Guaranteed free periods for the last two periods of the day with the possibility of even greater flexibility throughout the day
Acceptance of credits from online institutions, should students choose to take an online course
Personal support and flexibility for each student athlete to develop a strong academic schedule that works well with his/her athletic commitments
A school administration that is supportive of students balancing high-level ski racing and rich, challenging academics
For prospective students, please discuss your student-athlete's scheduling needs with Ashley Satterthwaite, Dean of Academic Affairs, in the spring. The club works closely with David to review individual schedules and ensure that both the Club and School can support student-athlete needs.
Mountain Academy, Teton Science Schools
The Club and the administration of the Teton Science Schools work with individual families and students to create the best possible academic and training schedule for student success. Early release for training is an option for students in grades 6-12, dependent on student class schedules. Students use study halls scheduled early in the school day, email and Google applications to communicate with teachers about class material missed for race and competition travel. For more details on scheduling options, please contact Ashley Babcock and/or your Division Head.
