student progression plan
we're always aiming higher
Duval County's Student Progression Plan is an
extensive 100+ page document containing all of the school
district's academic guidelines and expectations. It is
reviewed annually and modified to reflect our goals.
State law requires all of Florida's 67 counties to
develop and maintain a comprehensive program for pupil
progression. The law was enacted by the Florida State
Legislature as the Educational Accountability Act of
1976 to establish testing guidelines and standards to
monitor and evaluate academic performance in reading,
writing, science, and mathematics for students in
kindergarten through 12th-grade.

Modification to Valedictorian/Salutatorian Recognition
- At the time of final senior rankings, the two students with the highest rank based on weighted GPA, who have been enrolled at the school since the beginning of their junior year, will be designated as Valedictorian and Salutatorian. The student with the highest weighted GPA will be ranked as number one ( #1) and will be recognized as such, but the Valedictorian/Salutatorian designation will be tied to the students who have been enrolled at the school for at least two years. A school may elect to recognize both a 3-year, 24-Credit Valedictorian or Salutatorian as well as the traditional 4-year Valedictorian or Salutatorian.
