7.01 Honors Graduate Transition (D)
Purpose: To begin discussions of transitioning from Valedictorian / Salutatorian to a system of graduating with Honors.
Background: This transition has been discussed by administration for a few years. Currently, we recognize more than one individual at Valedictorian and Salutatorian so the only significant change is the potential to recognize more students for the academic accomplishments. This allows students to be recognized for challenging themselves with more difficult courses that may result in a lower grade.
Supporting Documents: Graduation with Honors
Recommendation: To discuss and provide input for adoption possibly in September.
