On June 4, 2008, the City of Hallandale Beach Commission passed Resolution #2008-031. This resolution requires all participants of the Police Athletic League (PAL) of Hallandale Beach to maintain a minimum 2.0 Grade Point Average (GPA) in order to participate in any PAL program. If a child does not reach the minimum GPA, then that child must attend a free mandatory tutorial program in order to continue to participate in our programs.
PAL would like to stress that no child will be left out of our athletic programs as long as they are willing to enroll in a tutorial program.
You are required to fill out the Scholastic Eligibility Form in order to continue participating in our program. PAL will work with any child that falls below the required GPA. PAL is in partnership with various tutorial services and is willing to discuss these options with you.
