Important News About Student Ranking System
Class Rank Policy Change – We Need Your Voice!
As of the April DISD School Board Briefing, a change to the Class Ranking policy, EIC (Local), is up for discussion and being voted on. The proposed change would give high schools in Dallas ISD, the option to either continue ranking every single student in their graduating class, or to not rank students at all (students who would be in the top 10% would still receive certification for automatic admissions). Class ranking at SEM is not a representative statistic for our students, who are among the best and brightest students from around the Dallas Metroplex. It is critical that the changes to EIC (Local) as proposed (and attached) are passed by the Dallas ISD school board this year. The passing of this policy would positively impact SEM and other schools’ students by increasing chances for college admission (especially at public, state universities), increasing student motivation to learn and explore their passions, and decreasing stress due to class ranking. While this proposed policy change was on the agenda for the April board briefing, it was not discussed and was postponed until May’s board briefing. We ask that you call your Dallas ISD school board member and ask for their support in making sure the proposed policy change to EIC(Local) is discussed at the May board briefing and that they support its implementation. This policy gives choice to all Dallas ISD high schools. Top schools and districts around the nation have already moved away from mandating that all high schools rank their entire class, and it’s time for Dallas ISD to move forward with this policy as well.
