RANKING STUDENTS

*Board of Education Regulations require that courses taken below the ninth grade level which are identified as 9th or above, plus all other courses classified as 9th-12th grades be included in determination of the final GPA.

 

*All enrolled students are ranked at the end of the first semester.

 

*Final exams are scheduled on the last two days of school. However, seniors will be given exams two days prior to the regular exam days. Full day attendance will be required for all students on senior exam days. Senior activities will be scheduled during the afternoon of the regular exam days.

*Students who complete graduation requirements in summer school will retain their previously determined class rank.

 

*ONLY students completing all requirements at the end of the spring semester are eligible for the academic honor of valedictorian or salutatorian.

 

*Rank in class will be determined by assigning a numerical value to the letter grade on which a unit or fractional unit of credit is based in each course.

 

*The division will provide opportunities for all eligible students to take advancement placement and dual enrollment courses (college courses taken by high school students) for the purpose of establishing final GPA class rank for seniors.

 

*Only final semester (term) grades for each course attempted will be used in the computation of the GPA.

 

*If a student repeats a failed or passed subject, both grades will be used in computing the GPA. *However, the student may only earn credit once for the course.

 

If a combination of circumstances should produce an ranking which the school principal deems to be unfair, a committee comprised of the following would act to correct the injustice:

 

the school principal,

the school guidance counselor,

the director of instruction,

the director of secondary education, and

one member pointed by the division superintendent.

 

In comparison of rank in class, all final ranks shall be calculated at three decimal places (.000) and rounded to two decimal places (.00.) Rank, except for ties, will reflect the number of students at and above a given rank.

Graduating seniors with a GPA of 3.30 and above will be considered as honor students.
