School Officials Considering Eliminating Class Rank At Grand Island Senior High

GRAND ISLAND- School officials are considering eliminating class rank at Grand Island Senior High.

Consideration was prompted by the Millard and Seward school districts getting rid of the class ranking system. Associate Superintendent Robin Dexter says the primary reason for the discussion is that there is a concern that students may be enrolling in courses to boost their rank, regardless of whether those courses align with their college and career plans. Dexter says students already enrolled at the school would not be affected if the class rank was eliminated.

A final recommendation on the matter may not come until March.
