The Jamestown Public School District doesn’t release the names of students on its honor roll. We think the district should reconsider publishing the list.
District administrators say the lists are never totally accurate, and because some grades are turned in late, the honor rolls aren’t released until three weeks after students receive their grades. They argue some of the positive enforcement expected in releasing the grades is lost in that time period.
Last week, The Jamestown Sun asked readers of its Web site the question “Should Jamestown Public Schools publish the middle school and high school honor rolls?” Here are the results of the unscientific survey
The fall semester dean’s list was released by Nancy Erickson, interim vice president for academic affairs at Bemidji (Minn.) State University, and included a number of students from this area. Bemidji State students carrying 12 or more semester hours during any one term and earning at least 3.25 (B-plus) grade point average are listed on the dean’s list.
Those students are: Courtney Bischof and Markie Toso, both Lisbon, N.D., and Michaela Willer, Jamestown.
More than 570 students were named to the president’s roll of honor at the University of North Dakota, Grand Forks, for the 2009 fall semester. The UND President’s Roll of Honor recognizes outstanding academic achievement over the course of the student’s complete academic career. To qualify, a student must have a cumulative grade point average of 3.8 or higher (4.0 equals a straight A average), have earned a minimum of 30 semester hours and have earned a minimum on 12 hours at the close of the semester.
These area Bismarck State College students were named to the president’s honor roll for the fall 2009 semester. Students must maintain at least a 3.50 grade point on a 4.00 scale while enrolled in at least 12 semester hours of classes. Those with a star following their name have a 4.00 grade point average for the semester.
