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 grades 9 through 12.

Only grades earned from State-chartered schools for approved credit or coursework pursuant to Policy 5463 will be considered when calculating a studentís grade point average (GPA) or class rank for purposes of graduation honors, such as Valedictorian, etc.

No student shall be eligible for graduation honors, such as Valedictorian, etc. unless they have been enrolled for four (4) consecutive semesters prior to the final semester utilized for purposes of determining such honors.
