Honor Roll and Principal’s List
Students in grades 1-12 who have earned a 3.0 to a 3.4 Grade Point Average (GPA) are eligible for the Central School Honor Roll. Students in grades 1-12 who have earned a 3.5 or higher GPA are eligible for Principal’s List. Physical Education is NOT included in the calculation of the GPA for students in grades 1-12. Those students who have a 4.0 GPA will be so noted with an asterisk.
Central School recognizes two primary graduation honors: valedictorian and salutatorian. A student must be enrolled at Central School as a student for the entire senior year to be considered for valedictorian or salutatorian.
In order to qualify for consideration for either of the two graduation honors, a senior who is eligible to graduate at the time of commencement exercises must have a minimum of 3.4 average, as determined by the State of Louisiana. For the purpose of graduation honors, only P.E. grades specifically required for graduation will be included in the average; elective P.E. grades will not be included in the average. Only the senior who is eligible for graduation, meets these standards, and has the highest GPA (at or above 3.4) will be considered for valedictorian.
Likewise, only the senior who is eligible for graduation, meets these standards, and has the second best GPA (at or above 3.4) will be considered for salutatorian. If there is only one eligible, graduating senior with a GPA of 3.4 or better, that student will serve as valedictorian and no student will serve as salutatorian. If no senior eligible for graduation has a GPA of 3.4 or better, then no student will serve as valedictorian or salutatorian for that year.
