Policy and Procedures

Parent and Athlete Agreement and Concussion Management

On July 24, 2023, the Board of Education approved a new parent and athlete agreement/code of conduct. You can read it and learn about concussion management by clicking here.

Substance Abuse

Read the substance abuse policies and procedures.

The High School Code of Conduct and Middle School Code of Conduct also guide penalties in these cases.

Children in middle school and younger must be supervised at evening sporting events

Athletic events and extracurricular activities are a very important aspect of school life. They are part of the fabric of what makes Scotia-Glenville Central Schools the center of the community. Spectators who attend these events come to support our students and to enjoy the community atmosphere.

In the past few years we have seen more middle and elementary school pupils left unsupervised by their parents at high school athletic games. As a result of this, more incidents of misconduct, rudeness, and other inappropriate behaviors are being reported to supervisors at these contests. This has particularly become a problem at football games and basketball games.

2023 Athletic Hall of Fame
