• Honor Roll Requirements

    Students are listed for honors at the end of each marking period. The administrative team and professional education task force have adopted the following criteria for all Halifax Area School District students:
     
    • Honors: In order for a student to earn the honor roll, the student must have a GPA of 86% - 94% with no grade lower than an 86%.
    • Distinguished Honors: In order for a student to earn the distinguished honor roll, the student must have a GPA of 95% - 100% with no grade lower than an 86%.


    PROMOTION REQUIREMENT:

    To enter the next grade, pupils in sixth, seventh and eighth grade must successfully meet the academic as well as the social and emotional requirements necessary for success at the next grade level.  Academic requirements hold that a student who has performed below basic in more than 1½ credit units of classes  may not be promoted. 

     
    If a student has failed up to 3 ½ credit units of classes during an academic year, that student is still eligible to pass to the next grade if they qualify to take and successfully complete 2 course-credit units of study over the summer prior to the start of the new school year.
