15 VALEDICTORIAN/SALUTATORIAN SELECTION PROCEDURES FOR STUDENTS ENTERING GRADES 9-12 The Shelby County School district encourages all to attempt the most challenging coursework available. The following criteria are used in the selection of the Valedictorian, Salutatorian, and Honor Graduates: Valedictorian the student at each Shelby County high school who satisfies the requirements for the Advanced Academic Diploma and who attains the highest grade point average in his/her graduating class. Salutatorian The student with the next highest grade point average who satisfies the requirements for the Advanced Academic Diploma. Honor Graduates Students who satisfy the requirements for an Alabama High School Diploma or Advanced Academic Diploma and who also attain a grade point average of 4.0, or are in the top 5% of the graduating class. This determination will be made after the posting of first semester grades of their senior year. CLASS RANK AND GRADE POINT AVERAGE Class rank is determined by ranking each student s overall grade point average within the graduating class. Final senior class ranking for Valedictorian/Salutatorian selection is done at the end of the first semester of the senior year. GPA s and rank are figured in the computer using both earned and unearned quality points. The grade point average (GPA) is computed using the following: Regular Courses Honors Courses AP Courses DE/DC English Comp I & II A = 4.0 A = 4.5 A = 5.0 A = 4.5 B = 3.0 B = 3.5 B = 4.0 B = 3.5 C = 2.0 C = 2.5 C = 3.0 C = 3.5 D = 1.0 D = 1.5 D = 2.0 D = 1.5 F = 0.0 F = 0.0 F = 0.0 F =

16 Guidelines for Students Transferring into Shelby County Schools Grades/Transcript Information/PE, Other 1. Transfer student coming in with AP/IB courses: Students receive the weight they came with for AP/IB/Honors courses. The transcript is not changed. However, weight not to exceed 1.0 for AP/IB and.5 for Honors If former school did not give weight for Honors courses, do not give weight. The transcript is not changed. EXCEPTION It is OK to give weight for AP and/or IB, even if former school did not give weight. This may change the GPA. If student transfers in to Shelby County for senior year, he/she cannot be #1 in class rank. He/she can be a Val, but cannot be #1. 2. Entering transfer student s grades into transcript. If a student transfers from an Alabama high school, use number grades. If a student transfers from an out-of-state high school letter grades. 3. Transfer students coming from non-sacs accredited schools/home schools, and/or church schools. Student must take and pass tests in each of the four core subject areas. Refer to page 17 of the SCBOE Academic Guide guidelines for students transferring from a non-sacs accredited school. 4. Guidelines for acceptance of transcripts from other school systems. Accept all credits from schools accredited by a regional organization (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Northwest Association of Colleges and Schools, etc.) Accept elective credits from private and home schools. Accept grades submitted along with grading scale (Cannot change a grade, i.e. if grade submitted is 74-D, cannot change this to a C based on our grading scale). 5. Block schedule Cut-off date for a transfer student to receive credit. If a student transfers into a SCBOE high school within the 1 st 9-weeks (before the end of 3 rd 9-weeks), the student can be put in class and can make up what was missed. If a student transfers into a SCBOE high school after the beginning of the second nine weeks in first semester or the fourth nine weeks during the second semester, it is too late to make up the work or receive credit. 6. Block schedule Making up class/credit. The student can make up core academic class/classes in summer school. 16

17 7. PE LIFE Requirement. Each school submits a plan every year. Waivers - Responsibility of Band and ROTC to send request for waiver for PE LIFE to the High School Coordinator. For transfers with 9 th grade athletic PE, it is the responsibility of Athletic Director to put the student with a coach that is teaching LIFE PE, and then change it on the transcript to say PE LIFE. Students who transfer from out-of-state in grades 10, 11, or 12 and have had PE, accept it as PE LIFE. Students who transfer from a home school, and have not had PE LIFE must take 1 full credit of PE LIFE. 8. The Day Program. Students returning to their home base school from the Day Program must reenroll and attend a semester before they can apply to the Success Program. 9. Fine Arts credit and which courses count as a Fine Art. This is determined by the year the student took the course and whether or not it was classified as a Fine Art in the SDE course of study (please refer to state course of study and Level I standards). 10. Accepting credit from other Credit Recovery Programs, such as Keystone, American School, etc. Credit Recovery Programs need to be approved by the AL State Dept. Ed. If the SDE recognizes and approves the Credit Recovery Program, then Shelby County will also accept. 17
