Do eight grade accelerated courses (e.g., Algebra and Earth Science) count towards 9th grade green award eligibility? Also, each year, is green award eligibility and ultimately graduation 95 plus medal eligibility based on unweighted or weighted GPA?

A. The Green and White Awards are for only last years 9th, 10th, and 11th graders. This award is held in the Fall.  The Green Award is awarded to students who have a weighted GPA of 95% or higher for the entire school year (that’s why it would be for last year’s 9th (now sophomores), 10th (now juniors) and 11th (now seniors).

The senior graduation medal recipients are awarded to seniors who have a weighted GPA of 95% or higher for 3 ¾ years.
