WBHS offers a number of options for makeup work or additional instruction:
The School Board of Chesapeake has adopted a policy requiring participants in Virginia High School League sanctioned activities to maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA in order to be eligible to participate in VHSL sanctioned activities. Study sessions have been developed as a method to assist VHSL participants in meeting the requirements. Study halls will be mandatory at Western Branch High School for VHSL participants who are in jeopardy of failing to meet the 2.0 requirement or who fall below the requirement. Even though the program is targeting VHSL participants, all students who would like extra help are invited to participate. Bus transportationHow the WIN Program Works
The study sessions are open to all students. The study sessions will meet after school for a minimum of 135 minutes per week. The study sessions will be held Tuesday - Thursday from 3:45 - 4:30 p.m. The only legitimate excuse for athletes with a GPA below 2.0 not attending a study session are:
- being absent from school the entire day
- having a contest conflict (game day)
- Quiet study area
- Peer tutoring
- Faculty tutoring
- Make-up tests
Initial Eligibility - A VHSL participant must maintain a 2.0 GPA prior to initial participation, regardless of when initial participation begins. Under this provision, in order to be eligible for the first semester, a ninth-grade participant must have maintained a 2.0 GPA for either the second semester of the eighth-grade year. Also, under this provision, an eighth-grade student competing at the sub-varsity level, must maintain a 2.0 GPA for the semester, or the year prior to participation. Any student entering a VHSL activity and establishing eligibility for the first time, must have maintained a 2.0 GPA for the previous semester, or have maintained a 2.0 cumulative GPA. Probationary Semester - After meeting the 2.0 GPA requirement for the initial participation, the student may have one probationary period of high school eligibility (grades 9-12). This means that, once participation has begun, the student must achieve at least a 2.0 GPA for all except one of the semesters of eligibility. That semester may be used as a probationary semester in which the student is allowed to continue participation in VHSL activities and attend mandatory study hall. Any student participating in a sport while in the probationary semester may not practice or participate in contests unless study sessions are attended. The probationary period is defined as the semester following a semester in which a participant falls below the 2.0 GPA requirements and meets the VHSL eligibility requirements. A student who does not comply with the VHSL Scholarship Rule or other VHSL eligibility rules as found in Section 28 of the Virginia High School League Handbook will be ineligible to participate.
