Students must have 26 academic credits to graduate (Please see Handbook section entitled “Course Selection” for requirements). All tuition and student fees must be paid in full or a signed agreement to pay in full must be on file in the office. No transcript of credits or diploma will be issued until all obligations, both academic and financial, to the school have been satisfactorily met. It is understood as a matter of contract, that families, by their attendance at SLHS, waive their right to the forwarding of transcripts to their next school. As this handbook represents the understandings of both parent and school, attendance at SLHS is therefore to be viewed as an assent to the terms and conditions stated in this document.
In order to be considered as a candidate for valedictorian of the graduating class, a student must attend Shoreland Lutheran High School for his/her entire junior and senior year. In no case will any student who transfers to Shoreland Lutheran High School during his/her junior or senior year be considered for valedictorian of his/her graduating class.
The valedictorian for each graduating class of Shoreland Lutheran High School will be determined on the basis of the cumulative grade point average after seven semesters. The student who has earned the highest grade point average at that time is declared the class Valedictorian. If two or more students tie for the highest cumulative grade point average after seven semesters the number of points earned will determine the valedictorian. (Points = Number of Credits Earned x Cumulative Grade Point Average) If two or more students have the same point total, co-valedictorians will be named.
The salutatorian for each graduating class of Shoreland Lutheran High School will be the student who is ranked second in the class based upon cumulative grade point average. If two or more students tie for the second ranking based upon cumulative grade point average after seven semesters, cumulative points will be used to determine the salutatorian.
If co-valedictorians have been named, the student with the next highest ranking based upon cumulative grade point average and or cumulative points will be the salutatorian.
