3440 Recognizing Excellence

The board strongly encourages programs and activities that recognize and reward excellence in student academic achievement, character and leadership.

The board authorizes the superintendent to develop criteria for defining honor rolls. The superintendent may implement uniform publication of honor rolls in the schools for any or all time periods for which formal grade reporting is done. A variety of other programs, such as honor societies and citizenship and leadership awards, may also be implemented to recognize outstanding student achievement. The board encourages school recognition ceremonies and community recognition ceremonies to honor scholarship and distinguished character and leadership abilities.

Administrators and teachers are responsible for developing and implementing various means of recognizing student achievement.
