Determination of Valedictorian(s) and Salutatorian(s)

Effective: This would be in place for students graduating in years 2013, 2014 and 2015.

1. Students must have attended the same Perris Union District Comprehensive High School for their final two years or the Continuation High School for two consecutive semesters.

2. All weighted courses (AP, Dual Enrollment) will be counted as 5 credits per class per semester. Only grades A, B, C are weighted.

3. Weighted courses are calculated on a 5 point scale. Other courses will be based on a 4 point scale.

4. The Valedictorian calculation will be based on 7 semesters and the 12 week progress report in the second semester of the senior year. All 12-week progress report corrections must be made within one week from the report card distribution date.

5. In the event of academic ties, the school will award multiple valedictorians and salutatorians.

6. The academic ranking on the transcript does not determine the Valedictorian and Salutatorian.

7. All students who earn a cumulative weighted Grade Point Average (GPA) in excess of 4.0+, by the end of the first semester of the senior year, will be noted as "Graduates with Honors". Students who determine that they will have earned a 4.0+ cumulative GPA by the end of the 12-week progress report in the second semester of the senior year, must meet with their counselor to be included in the "Graduates with Honors" program.

The Continuation High School will take the students with the top ten cumulative GPA's to determine their "Graduates with Honors".

8. Students earning the "Graduates with Honors" distinction will be issued a braided cord in their school colors.

Only the following recognitions will be allowed in addition to Cap and Gown other than approved pins attached to the gown sash:

• Top Ten - Cord

• Honor Roll - Cord

• CSF - Cord

• AVID - Sash

• NHS (National Honors Society) - Cord

1. Students must have attended the same Perris Union High School District Comprehensive High School for their final two years or the Continuation High School for two consecutive semesters.

3. All weighted courses (AP, Dual Enrollment) will be counted as 5 credits per class per semester. Only grades of A, B, C are weighted.

4. Any course earning a grade less than A must be used in Valedictorian calculation.

5. Weighted courses are calculated on a 5 point scale. Other courses will be based on a 4 point scale.

6. The Valedictorian calculation will be based on 7 semesters and the 12-week progress report in the second semester of the senior year. All 12-week progress report corrections must be made within one week from the report card distribution date.

7. The Valedictorian calculation will be made by taking the number of grade points earned in the equalized courses divided by the minimum number of courses needed for graduation.
