Academic All-Stars Awards: In recognition of their academic success, all participants of PYFCO who meet the eligibility requirements as identified in these by-laws, will receive an Academic All-Star Award. This award is a patch for the football players and a pin for cheerleaders. A committee consisting of representatives from each league and one PYFCO Board member as the Chairperson will determine which participants have met the eligibility requirements. The report card for the final marking period of the previous school year (includes kindergartners) will be utilized to determine Academic All-Star recipients. Only core subjects will be considered - Reading, English, Spelling, Math, Social Studies, Science, Language Arts, History and Foreign Languages. (NOTE: Not all schools consider Computer Classes a "core" subject. Please only count if it is considered a core subject for child's school.) If a subject is not listed above, then the league Academic All-star representative can ask the PYFCO Academic All-star Chairperson for a decision on whether or not the subject can be included in the calculation for the award.


2015 Academic All-Star Report Card Grading Criteria



All participants MUST meet the PYFCO basic age requirement of being 6 years old by September 30th of the current year in order to be eligible for this award.

A - 4
B - 3
C - 2
D - 1
F - 0

To get the average, add up the number of points for each subject that is counted and then divide the total by the number of classes counted.

You get .3 for a "+" (B+ = 3.3). You get -.3 for a "-" (B- = 2.7).
For an A+, you still get 4.

For kids in grades without letter grades, we break it down according to the code on the report card - Top level is a 4, Next level is a 3, and so on (example - Outstanding, 1 or "on grade level" = 4, Satisfactory, 2 or "consistently demonstrates" = 3, Needs Improvement, 3 or "below grade level" = 2).

All core subjects will be counted - Reading, English, Spelling, Math, Social Studies, Science, Language Arts, History and Foreign Languages. (NOTE: Not all schools consider Computer Classes a "core" subject. Please only count if it is considered a core subject for child's school.) We do not count Physical Education, Art, Drama, Band, or Choir. If a subject isn't on the list, then the league Academic All-star representative can ask the PYFCO Academic All-star Chairperson for a decision on whether or not the subject can be included in the calculation for the award.
