UIL Waiver Directions 2018-2019

For purposes of eligibility, students in advanced courses (see full list) will be granted one waiver per eligibility grading period if they maintain a grade of 60 or higher in core course (ELA, Math, Science, Social Studies, Foreign Languages). GCISD will recognize four eligibility grading periods throughout the school year in which waivers can be submitted. The eligibility grading periods are: the UIL mandated first 6-week grade check and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd 9-week grading periods.

You must take these steps in completing the waiver. An incomplete waiver will not be granted.

Fill out the form below these directions

Secure signature of sponsor or coach

Print and attach a copy of the report card for the grading period you are requesting a waiver.

Write a letter to _______ (HS Principal). The letter should be addressed, “Dear _______,” (HS Principal). It should be typed; if it is not typed, it should be written neatly in INK on nice paper.
