Bylaws & Policies


The School Board 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 grades 9-12.

The Superintendent 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 provision for students graduating before their class;

 B.a system for fairly averaging makeup courses;

 C.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;

 D.recognition of the heavier burden of certain work, classes, courses, etc.
