SCUSD Multi-School Athletic Agreement change

The California Scholastic Federation-Sac Joaquin Section (CIF-SJS) will no longer honor the SCUSD Multi-Schools Athletic Participation Agreement that has been in place for the last 4 years.  

According to Bylaw 303

  • Students attending West Campus will participate in sports at West Campus
  • Students attending any of our small schools will participate in sports at their comprehensive school of residence
    • For example - A student who attends “Health Professions and lives in the CKM attendance area will play sports at CKM.
  • Students attending any of our small schools who live outside of SCUSD will not be allowed to participate in sports with SCUSD as we do not have a Multi-School Athletic Agreement with schools outside of SCUSD
    • For example - A student who attends Health Professions and lives in EGUSD attendance area will not be allowed to participate in sports with SCUSD or EGUSD.
  • CIF-SJS Commissioner Garrison will allow students attending our small schools and who played sports at West Campus last season to remain at West Campus for sports, if they choose, for the remainder of their high school eligibility.  Students will also have the option of leaving West Campus sports and playing for their school of residence as described above without having to adhere to the “Sit Out” Bylaw which requires students transferring from School A to School B to Sit Out for a period of 30 days.
    • Students choosing to stay at West Campus for the 2017-18 sport seasons will not have the opportunity to return to their school of residence the following year without adhering to the “Sit Out” Bylaw


Thank you for taking an interest in visiting the George Washington Carver School of Arts and Science.

Our school culture is based on critical thinking (head), creative expression (heart), and wholesome action (hands). Our school environment is designed to develop thinking, creating, and healthy activity. We foster respect for the individuality of each student throughout the school. Our college preparatory curriculum is integrated with the arts. At Carver High School, students find a place to explore and experiment; every classroom is like a laboratory or art studio where students and teachers engage in academic inquiry and test their ideas.

At Carver High School, students work in the Sam Mazza Garden, which is an outdoor classroom: Nature is our textbook. The garden is a place for our community to cultivate nourishment and inspiration.

Our goal is to give our students the resources and confidence to answer the question:
