Tech information regarding social media and athletics
The following is from Mason McHenry who is a math teacher at BHS along with being our head Cross Country/Track Coach. Mason was part of the University of Arizona athletic staff prior to moving to the northwest. He has this perspective on social media from his time at the collegiate level:
As technology advances so does the way Students/Student-Athletes are able to brand themselves. It wasn't until recently that the NCAA allowed Student-Athletes to promote themselves and use the image for their benefit, but even before that Students/Student-Athletes were held accountable for how they present themselves online.
At Northshore school district we have recently acquired and developing our social media presence in athletics. Part of this presence is passing forward the proper manner of learning how to use social media correctly for not only our Student-Athletes but our students as well.
Every year numerous athletic scholarships are revoked for the misuse of social media by Student-Athletes, along with scholarships for students. Even if you are reposting/liking/sharing posts that have negative connotations/hateful speech/racial slurs/slander/ect. Nothing is private to the eyes on social media. What you might think is harmless or funny to a group of friends might not be in the interests of the institutions you are about to represent after your secondary education, athlete or not. As we move forward with developing our social media presence, we are hoping to pass along better information on how to use social media for both our Students and Student/Athletes.
Never let a meme that you or your friend created cause you to lose your future so......

Academic Eligibility Requirements
Student athletes in high school are expected to meet or exceed a 2.0 GPA at regular grade checks for each sports season. Additional Eligibility NEED TO KNOW info::
- In our daily 7-period schedule, student athletes must be passing 6 out of 7 classes to maintain WIAA athletic eligibility at grades checks. By WIAA rule you have to be passing the minimum number of classes (6 classes) if you are only taking the minimum number of classes. For example, if you are only taking 6 classes in a 7-period day you must pass all 6 classes at the grade check to be eligible.
- Athletes cannot be taking LESS THAN 6 CLASSES UNLESS they are a Senior on track to graduate. Those Seniors can take only 5 or 6 classes but MUST be passing ALL at the grade check.
It is critical, when registering or altering your class schedule, to understand this criteria in order to maintain eligibility OR to be even be able to participate. CONTACT ATHLETIC DIRECTOR PRIOR to making changes if you are unclear. Northshore requires student athletes to have a 2.0GPA with initial grade checks for the season and at the end of each semester.
