Policy Language

A September change to Rogers’ graduation requirements/honors policy removed the words “all credits must be earned in grades nine through 12” and replaced it with “All courses with an Arkansas Department of Education high school course number will count toward graduation credit and grade point average.”

The proposed November revision to Rogers’ graduation requirements/honors policy reads: “All courses with an Arkansas Department of Education high school course number will count toward graduation credit”, deleting the words “and grade point average.” It also notes: “High school courses taken in middle school will not be included in the grade point calculation.”

The policy is on the agenda for the 6 p.m. Tuesday School Board meeting. The meeting will be held at the district’s Administration Building, 500 W. Walnut St.
