A Glenbard High School District 87 committee meets Wednesday, May 7, to discuss the possibility of eliminating class rank.
"Eliminating class rank would increase the post-secondary opportunities for more of our graduates by requiring colleges and universities to conduct a more holistic review of our students during the admission process," reads the district website.
"Most of the high schools that we compare ourselves to in the Chicago suburbs have already come to the conclusion that class rank does not help, and may hurt their students in the college admissions process. This conclusion prompted 16 local school districts to eliminate class rank policies over the last 10 to 15 years."
The Student Performance and Achievement Committee meets at 6 p.m. May 7 in the administration center, 596 Crescent Blvd. in Glen Ellyn. Parents are invited to attend and share comments or ask questions.
