High School Class Rank

Class rank shall be determined based on a student’s numeric grade average compared to all students in the graduating class.  The criteria for determining numeric grade average shall be as follows:

  1. Individual course grades weighted in accordance with the high school credit value of the course.
  2. All transfer grades must have been received from a school accredited by AdvancEd (now known as Cognia) or equivalent accrediting institution.
  3. Grades from dual enrollment courses will be considered in calculations of the numerical averages based on the district’s conversion scale.
  4. Grades from Advanced Placement courses shall receive a 10 percent bump when calculating overall average for class rank.
  5. Grades from Honors (Non-Advanced Placement) courses shall receive a five percent bump when calculating overall average for class rank.
  6. Final class ranks will be determined based upon all completed courses taken for high school credit, including any high school credits earned in middle school.  
  7. Grades from any completed dual enrollment courses will be considered in calculations of the numerical averages based on the district's conversion scale. In-progress dual-enrollment courses will not be considered.
  8. Credits earned in lieu of participation in a course shall not be included in the overall average.
