Salutatorian and Valedictorian Information
Each year, our honor graduates including our Valedictorian and Salutatorian, are determined at the end of the third nine weeks by calculating the cumulative numeric grade average (CNGA). The CNGA represents the average of all grades earned in high school, grades 9-12. Honor graduates are students whose CNGA is 90 or higher. No rounding is permitted-a CNGA of 89.5 will not qualify one to be an honor graduate. The student with the highest CNGA will be named the Valedictorian. The student with the second highest CNGA will be named Salutatorian. The principal will announce the honor graduates no more than fifteen work days after the end of the third nine weeks.
Recently, our Board of Education updated the following policies which can be accessed online at our school system website Please know that the policies provide definitions, time lines and tie-break information.
