GPA Waivers

Do you have a GPA of 4.0 or higher?  Will you have been in one of the programs on this list for at least 3 years next year?  You might be eligible to apply for a GPA Waiver.  To do that, simply fill out this online form- GPA Waiver Form.  This must be done by the first week of school.

Common GPA waiver classes are: sports, orchestra, choir, theater, art, band, ROTC, some CTE classes, yearbook/newspaper, dance, & debate.

Once your request has been received it will be processed and parents will get a notification in Parent Access.  Next year their approved course will have a course number that starts with the letter "R".

Special Note- Class of 2018 students who waived a class last year MUST re-submit the waiver form for next year.

If you have questions, please contact your counselor or Mrs. Joiner in the Tiger Den.
