5430 Policy_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) 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 completing graduation requirements 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. The subjects to be included in the GPA;
    E. How pass/fail grades are calculated in the GPA;
    F. How grades from study abroad, alternative and home schools are calculated in the GPA;
    G. How grades from another country earned by students are calculated in the GPA.
