This letter will include dress code information and a detailed list of the honors students have the opportunity to earn and the requirements for earning them.

Dual Enrollment Honor Cords 2019-2020 Students will have the opportunity to celebrate their accomplishment of earning college credit while enrolled in high school through the dual enrollment program. Graduating seniors who have successfully completed four or more college level academic classes through a participating college and have received at least a B (3.0) –unweighted– for each course are eligible to wear an honor cord for dual enrollment. Students who are participating in dual enrollment for technical pathway completion will receive a teal cord upon completion of program as required by the college. For seniors enrolled in a course during the spring semester, the school will use the 30 week grading period before graduation to determine anticipated grade. Grades at or above an unweighted B will qualify toward the required four academic courses. See Mrs. Backus for ordering information
