5430 - CLASS RANK

The Board of Education acknowledges the usefulness of a system of computing grade point averages and class ranking for high school students, both to inform students of their relative academic placement among their peers and to provide students, prospective employers, and institutions of higher learning with a predictive device so that each student is more likely to be placed in an environment conducive to success.

The Board authorizes a system of class ranking, by grade point average, for students in grade(s) nine through twelve (12).

All students shall be ranked together.

Class rank shall be computed by the final grade in all subjects.

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 students' records and on all transcripts where they will be available for review by authorized persons.

The Building Principal shall develop procedures for the computation of grade point averages and the assignment of class rank to implement this policy which shall include:

 A.a system for fairly averaging makeup courses;

 B.a statement of the methods for such computation and assignment to be made available for those to whom a student's grade point average or rank in class is released.
