The Conrad School Board is scheduled to hold a special meeting on Aug. 4 to review the High School Eligibility Policy.
The policy that was approved last July after six school staff meetings and two school board meetings was in its first year of enactment and has been a highly debated topic in the community over the last year.
The eligibility requirement at CHS was altered from the Montana High School Association rule which only required a student to pass four classes to be eligible for extracurricular activities.
