505.3 Student Honors and Awards

Code No. 505.3


The school district will provide a program that establishes honors and awards including, but not limited to, academic letters, scholarships, and good citizenship awards for students to assist students in setting goals. Students are made aware of honors and awards and the action necessary on the part of the student to achieve them. Students who have not attended an accredited public or private school for their entire high school education, will not be eligible for honors and awards.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent to develop the administrative regulations regarding this policy.

Note: The last sentence of the first paragraph is where a school district should insert a residency requirement for receipt of school district honors and awards. The policy is written to require four years of attendance prior to eligibility for honors and awards. School districts that want more specific language, such as requiring students to attend the school district for four semesters prior to being eligible for honors and awards, should add it here.
