Small High School Athletic Agreement & Policy

The existing Small High School Athletic Agreement with the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) Sac-Joaquin Section was revised and agreed upon in the spring semester of the 2012-13 school year.

The agreement, as stated in conjunction with the CIF Section office, clearly defines that any and all enrolled students at a SCUSD small high school will be eligible to participate in Interscholastic Athletics at West Campus High School. The six participating small high schools are as follows: Arthur Benjamin Health Profession, The Met Charter, New Tech High, School of Engineering and Sciences, Kit Carson and George W. Carver.

The current agreement supersedes the previous agreement involving the five comprehensive high schools: Kennedy, Burbank, Johnson, McClatchy and Rosemont. The Small High School Athletic Agreement with the Sac-Joaquin office will no longer allow students from the small high schools to participate athletically at the comprehensive high school located within their area of attendance.

The new agreement with the CIF was established in the best interest of all of our student-athletes in the Sacramento City Unified School District. The revised agreement ensures the five comprehensive high schools have the opportunity to compete athletically at a commensurate level associated with their enrollment size. In addition, this agreement provides an opportunity for our students at a small high school to experience Interscholastic Athletics in a competitive atmosphere.

This is a net positive for all 2,800-plus student-athletes competing athletically for one of the six high schools in the Sacramento City Unified School District.
