5430 - CLASS RANK

The School Board has authorized the use of a class ranking system for grades 9 - 12 and an honor roll for all grades. The system to be used is detailed below.

At the end of the freshman, sophomore and junior year, and finally at the end of the first semester of the senior year, students will be ranked scholastically. At the end of the first semester of the senior year, this includes determination of Valedictorian, Salutatorian and "top ten" for purposes of commencement and senior awards and honors. The final average will be used in all subjects in which units of credits are given to calculate an average. This ranking is requested by colleges, is used to determine the eligibility for membership in the National Honor Society, and is used for certain senior honors.

 A.Class rank shall be computed by the final grade in all subjects. Any two (2) or more students whose computed grade point averages are identical shall be given the same rank.

 B.The rank of the student who immediately follows a tied position will be determined by the number of students preceding him/her and not by the rank of the person preceding him/her.

 C.A student's grade point average and rank in class shall be entered on his/her record and shall be subject to the Board's policy on release of student records. Rank in class shall be entered on the student's records and on all transcripts.
