Core Purpose 
,The core purpose of the Lincoln Public Schools Activities & Athletics Program is to offer students education-based opportunities to extend the learning experiences outside the classroom.  These experiences aid in the overall growth of student-athletes and activity competitors by promoting academic achievement, skill development, life skills and civic-life readiness.

The activities and athletics program creates an environment that strives for excellence while encouraging student participation, supporting academic progress and promoting physical, social, emotional and character development.

Good Sportsmanship:

Lincoln Public Schools recognizes the value of extracurricular activities in the education process and the values that students may develop when they have an opportunity to participate in organized activities outside the traditional classroom. Good sportsmanship is the attitude and behavior that exemplifies positive support for the extracurricular activities and programs of our District, as well as for the individuals who coach, supervise, advise, officiate, participate and attend such programs.

Any student, coach, advisor, volunteer or spectator, who, in connection with an extracurricular activity,  1) uses hateful language (including, without limitation, derogatory, vulgar or obscene language) in reference to a person’s sex, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, religion, gender or sexual orientation or, 2) engages (or attempts to engage) in any negative or harmful act against or directed toward a person based on such person’s sex, race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, religion, gender or sexual orientation, may be subject to immediate suspension or removal from the activity, and may, at the discretion of LPS administration, be required to complete an education program or other action prior to return.
