The Tulare City School District offers a competitive after school sports program for middle school students in the 7th and 8th grades. Teams participate in the Tulare Athletic Conference (TAC 5), which is affiliated with the Whitney League consisting of schools from Exeter, Farmersville, Lindsay, Porterville, and Woodlake. Students have the opportunity to participate in the following sports: boys flag football, girls volleyball, boys and girls soccer, boys and girls basketball, and track and field. We select students who try-out for teams based on their ability, attitude, attendance, and character. Students must also have a G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher to be eligible to play. Practices and games are Monday through Thursday from 3:45 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Education Equity Program
The California Department of Education recently issued the 2015-2016 Education Equity program instrument (Guidance), which is used to monitor a local educational agency's (LEA) compliance with laws on equity in the treatment of students. A major purpose behind the bill is to make it easier to monitor and enforce Title IX and state requirements for gender equity in public school athletics.
We are required to post (1) total school enrollment, classified by gender; (2) total number of students who participate in athletics, classified by gender; and (3) total number of school athletic teams, classified by gender, sport, and competition level. (Source: Lozano Smith, Attorneys at Law)
