The School Board values excellence and seeks to develop in students the desire to do their best in all things. It shall be the policy of this Board, therefore, to recognize outstanding accomplishment in curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular areas.
The Board authorizes the Superintendent to develop a plan for recognition of outstanding student achievement based on well-defined, consistent criteria and standards.
Pursuant to State law, District budgeted funds may be expended to purchase awards to be presented to students in recognition of their achievements and/or service. These awards may include, but are not limited to, certificates, plaques, medals, ribbons, and photographs.
Further, in order to provide public acknowledgment for academic achievement, schools are encouraged to hold Academic Scholarship Signing ceremonies to be scheduled annually in April to honor, as well as call attention to, those students at the District’s high schools who sign a letter of intent to accept an academic scholarship offered by a postsecondary institution.
