Academic Honor Roll
Pastor’s and Deacons’ Honor Rolls
Guidelines and Procedures
Developed by the Academic Education Ministry Scholarship Fund Committee
The scholarship committee, on behalf of the Brookland Baptist Church family, presents revised GUIDELINES and PROCEDURES GOVERNING the PASTOR’S AND DEACONS’ HONOR ROLLS. Pastor Jackson has made “excellence in education” one of the hallmarks of the church’s ministries. These guidelines provide the procedures used to recognize those students in grades one through twelve who are meeting the standards of excellence that we expect our students to maintain.
1. What is the purpose of the honor rolls?
Brookland Baptist Church provides a rich, Christian education for its members and for the wider community. The church also embraces a holistic ministerial agenda, which focuses on the total development of the individual. To that end, the church recognizes and promotes excellence in education. The honor rolls recognize those students who have excelled academically and encourage them to continue their efforts.
2. Who is eligible for inclusion on the honor rolls?
Students in grades 1 – 12 and attend Brookland Baptist Church services regularly are eligible for inclusion on the honor rolls.
3. How are students recognized?
All students receive monetary rewards. Students on the Pastor’s list will receive $10.00 and students on the Deacons’ list will receive $5.00.
4. When students are recognized and receive rewards?
Students are recognized twice per year during the regular worship service. First semester (1st & 2nd Quarters) honor roll students are recognized on the third Sunday in February. Second semester (3rd & 4th Quarters) honor roll students are recognized on the third Sunday in June. The date is announced in the bulletin. Students may pick up rewards following both worship services.
5. What are the eligibility requirements for the Pastor’s Honor Roll?
Students qualifying for the Pastor’s Honor Roll must have an A in all subjects during the applicable grading period. Grades are not averaged.
6. What are the eligibility requirements for the Deacons’ Honor Roll?
Students qualifying for the Deacons’ Honor Roll must earn at least a B average during the applicable grading period. If there is a C on the report card, a student may still qualify for the Deacons’ Honor Roll as long as the overall average is B.
7. Who will review report cards to determine eligibility?
The Scholarship Committee will review report cards for the applicable grading period by using the grading scale defined by the SC Department of Education for public schools. Additional grading information will be requested when grading scale is not consistent with the SC Department of Education standard.
8. What process is used when grades other than A, B, C or D is used and the grading scale is different from the SC Department of Education?
The committee accepts evaluation of student performance other than the traditional assignment of grades and will request an additional evaluation when needed.
9. Where should report cards be submitted?
Students should place report cards in the box labeled “REPORT CARDS” located in the lobby of the administration building by the due date. The due date will be announced and posted in the church bulletin. Parent’s name and telephone number must be recorded on the back of the report card.
