Hello to our A+ Seniors!
You’re in my thoughts often these days. I’m hoping you are all safe and healthy. In case you are anxious about your A+ status I want to assure you that the Missouri Department of Higher Education (they administer the program) is on top of it. They have eliminated the Math requirement so if you were concerned about meeting that standard, don’t be. You do have to earn an unweighted, cumulative grade point average of 2.5. Your final GPA will not be determined until senior grades are posted on May 15. At that time a list of our A+ Graduates will be posted on our school website, school Facebook page, and the school counselor’s webpage. If you believe that you are hovering near that mark I strongly encourage you to work diligently on the packets your teachers have prepared for you so that you might bump up your GPA. Also, if you were enrolled in a Peer Tutoring class this semester in order to earn your 50 hours of tutoring time, MDHE lowered that standard to 25 hours. You have each met that requirement. Finally, the cumulative Average Daily Attendance standard remains at 95%. In calculating our final attendance I figured in the last quarter plus the final week of the third quarter to give you the benefit of the doubt that you would’ve attended those days of school. This boosted your attendance about.5 %. As a reminder, if you have not completed the FAFSA you MUST do so before you start college or technical school. The state of Missouri will NOT release A+ funds to your account until your FAFSA is successfully completed! Should you have a question about your attendance or anything else A+ related please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. In spite of the need to safely distance ourselves I am here to help you as you wind down your high school careers.
