Of 573 Uvalde High School students participating in programs affected by the district’s No Pass, No Play rules, 38 students, or less than 7 percent, failed one or more classes in the first quarter of the 2019-2020 school year.

For the same period last fall, UHS lost 135 out of 870 students – about 15.5 percent – involved in extracurricular activities, including 48 fall-sports athletes and 28 members of various music groups.

This year, of 285 UHS students participating in five fall sports, 18 were affected.

No seniors were affected by the No Pass, No Play rules in this quarter. Of the 18 students who received at least one failing grade, two were juniors; eight were sophomores; and eight were freshmen.

UHS athletes participating in the sports programs have a 90 percent passing rate for this quarter, with 6 percent of participants not meeting standards, according to statistical information presented by Michael Rodriguez, UCISD deputy superintendent of curriculum and instruction.

For the 2018-2019 school year, Rodriguez presented information that 358 UCISD students participated in athletic programs, of which 169 were affected by No Pass, No Play rules; and for 2017-2018, of 331 participants, 181 were affected by the rule.
