Dr. Bob Falkenstein, North Baltimore High School Principal, invites you to attend a GPA and Honor Roll configuration meeting on April 17, at 7 pm in the Auditeria. He seeks parent, student, alumni, and community input about how these calculations are made.
Changes have not occurred 25 years. The current system does not properly account for the varied credit options that exist today.
Topics will include adjusting the way that GPA is calculated in the district thus impacting how valedictorians, salutatorians, and top 10% are selected.
Also, some changes to our honor roll system would impact the number of students who reach that academic designation.
The presentation will include our current system. Dr. Falkenstein will share how other similar districts in the area calculate GPA and Honor Roll (Elmwood, Eastwood, Penta Career Center, Van Buren, Arcadia, New Riegel, and Otsego).
Some suggestions will serve as a springboard for conversation. Much needs to be decided including a timeline for any changes.
