The Dover Area School Board voted Monday to fine tune the language of the district's extra-curricular activities policies.
The district "further defined" what is extra-curricular activity versus co-curricular activity, and "who can participate in what," said Jason Conway, the district's assistant superintendent.
With co-curricular activities, students are earning credits toward graduation and do activity outside the normal school day. Thus, they must be on record in the district to participate, Conway said.
For example, the marching band is a co-curricular activity in which students are receiving grades and are required to perform at events outside school hours, Conway said.
Students participating in co-curricular activities are not subjected to the district's activity fee, according to the district's policy.
However, students - including charter and cyber charter students - pay an activity fee to participate in extracurricular activities, including sports.
Student extracurricular activity occurs outside the normal school day and does not contribute to earning credits toward graduation, according to the district's policy
