The students were recognized along with their classmates during commencement exercises on Friday, June 3, at the University of North Texas’ Coliseum.

School officials said that the district’s GPA system was initiated several years ago to encourage students to not only take a well-rounded program, but also reward them for enrolling in a rigorous core curriculum.

Under the system, students are ranked in the core subject areas of Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies and Foreign Languages. This board policy was approved in an effort to provide students with a more consistent system in determining what courses would be used for grade point averages and class rankings.

Previously, students could only receive a 4.0 grade point for band, career classes and other electives. They would receive the “weighted” grade point or a 5.0 for advanced and honors classes, such as Advanced Placement Biology, Pre-AP English and other core “honors” classes.
