It is an incredible honor to receive top honors throughout a student’s educational journey. The senior with the highest weighted grade point average (GPA) is selected valedictorian and the senior with the second-highest weighted GPA is chosen salutatorian.
Aldine ISD has 18 students in the Class of 2020 who have achieved valedictorian or salutatorian honors. To obtain this recognition, the students had to work exceptionally hard, maintain focus throughout high school.
“We are excited to honor and recognize 18 outstanding senior students in the Class of 2020 as our valedictorians and salutatorians,” Superintendent Dr. LaTonya M. Goffney said. “I am happy to acknowledge our valedictorians and salutatorians for maintaining an impressive academic record during their educational journey. We applaud you and we are confident that each of you will continue to be successful in everything you choose to do.”
The Aldine ISD Board of Trustees approved a resolution to establish updated guidelines to that create local policy guiding class rank and honors during their March 24 board meeting. The action was taken to guide parents and students while the district is closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is specific to students who are part of the Class of 2020.
The approved resolution allowed Aldine ISD to calculate class rank for the Class of 2020 based on all grade points earned from the ninth grade through the last day of the second nine weeks of the first semester of the students’ senior year. This rank was used to determine the valedictorian and salutatorians at each of our high schools.
All Aldine ISD seniors will receive their official class rank information from their school counselor. Final class rank is often needed for students to complete college acceptance applications and scholarship requests.
