PRESIDENT’S AWARD FOR EDUCATIONAL EXCELLENCE

The purpose of this award is to recognize academic success in the classroom. In order to be considered for this award, a student in grade 8 must first receive an academic average of 90% or higher for each of the four quarters of 7th grade and each of the first two quarters of eighth grade. To be eligible for the President’s Award for Education Excellence, students must meet these requirements:

Students are to earn a grade point average of 90 on a 100 point scale for each quarter. When computing grade point averages at the respective award level, only the years at that level are to be included through the fall semester of the exiting grade;

Each school establishes standards for the award that reflect a 90 percent level or higher on the traditional grading scale. The primary indicators of excellence must be based on academic achievement. School personnel may also consider, as part of the criteria, activities in which a student demonstrates high motivation, initiative, integrity, intellectual depth, leadership qualities and/or exceptional judgement. They may also require student essays and outstanding attendance, but these activities must bear some relationship to the academic performance of a student;

Teacher recommendations. This judgement is to be supported by tangible evidence that consists of either results on teacher-made tests, portfolio assessment, or special projects.
