The parent or legal guardian must give their permission in writing for the student to graduate early. Students must pass the 10th grade level TAKS and pass the Exit-Level TAKS during the summer prior to entry into their junior year and must complete English III credit either by summer school or correspondence course. All state and local graduation requirements must be met for the year the student entered the ninth grade.

CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS


Students will be assigned grade levels according to the number of credits earned. Students will be classified at the end of each school year. If a student is behind in the number of credits needed to be placed at the next grade level and the student earns summer school credit or make-up credit the next school year, he/she will be assigned to the grade level at the beginning of the school year following the time the credits are earned.

CLASS RANK

Students will be ranked during their 11th and 12th grade years at the end of each semester. Classes taken for dual credit during summer school will not be reflected on the GPA/Rank until the end of the 1st semester the following school year.

GRADUATION HONORS


Candidates for Valedictorian and Salutatorian must carry a minimum of four (4) academic credit courses during their senior year. The final two- (2) years’ work must be completed at Sabine High School. Rank in class is determined by the students’ grade point average. Class rank for the purpose of determining valedictory, salutatory and honor graduate status is calculated after the 5th six-weeks grades have been posted. College courses taken during the last semester of the senior year will not be reflected in the final ranking. College course grades are only posted at the end of the semester. At the end of the 5th six-weeks grading period, the top two graduates and remaining honor graduates are announced. Honor graduates are those students who have earned a 4.5 grade point average or above on a 5.0 grade point scale. (see District Policy EIC)

At the senior level, a change in the graduation plan can only be made with the approval of the principal, the counselor and the parent/guardian.
