The East Aurora Union Free School District believes that the interscholastic athletic program is an integral part of the total education process. To insure this, the program is based on sound educational principles. Every activity sponsored and supported by a school must be considered a part of the total educational process.
Athletics are an outgrowth of the District's physical education program. Through physical education, intramurals and athletics, the District offers all students a fair and equal opportunity to develop to a maximum their physical, mental and social potential.
Athletics allow those students who have demonstrated a desire for further development the opportunity to participate on a higher level. To be an integral part of the educational process, athletics must follow the same goals and objectives that govern the physical educational program.
The East Aurora Union Free School District recognizes that the misuse of tobacco, drugs and/or alcohol is a serious problem with legal, physical, emotional and social implications for the entire community. This is particularly important with regard to extracurricular program participants where the physical and mental exertion required by the activity could magnify the detrimental effect of substance abuse.
