Richmond Schools to require 2.0 GPA from athletes

Posted: Updated:
RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Athletes in Richmond Public Schools will have to work a little harder in the classroom if they want to stay on their teams.

Earlier this week, the Richmond City School Board approved a new GPA eligibility requirement for high school athletes.

All 10th, 11th and 12th graders must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA or at least a 2.0 in the previous semester.
