Class Ranking

The Hoosic Valley Central School District Board of Education authorizes the final class rank to be developed using the ranking averages of all graduating students who have completed at least four consecutive high school semesters as district students. Ranking averages are computed by using final averages for all completed courses. The final class rank includes all classes taken in high school up to and including mid-year averages of a student’s senior year.


Valedictorian and Salutatorian

Rank in class shall be the sole criterion for determining the valedictorian and salutatorian. Determination of these honors will be calculated after the first semester of the graduation year.

In order to be considered for these honors, a student at the time of the selection must have completed at least four consecutive high school semesters as a district student. If a student has not completed at least four consecutive high school semesters as a district student when class rankings are calculated, his or her grade point average will be computed for transcript purposes, but he or she will not be ranked.


Weighted Class Rank

All Advanced Placement (AP) courses will be weighted by a multiplier of 1.2 and their high school credit value when calculating class rank. All college courses will be weighted by a multiplier of 1.2 and their high school credit value when calculating class rank. All other courses will be weighted by a multiplier of their high school credit value when calculating class rank. Only a student’s class rank is weighted and his or her grade point average is not impacted by this policy.
