From November 2014 through October 2015, the Austin High CAC conducted research regarding the benefits of not ranking students below the top 10 percent of the class. In October 2015, the Austin High CAC concluded that not ranking students in the bottom 90 percent of the class would benefit students at Austin High School. The CAC recommended a meeting with students, a series of parent meetings, and a survey. Five parent meetings were held between November 2015 and January 2016. Principal Taylor and Austin High counselors met with a representative group of students in November. The survey below will be conducted from Monday, February 29 through Thursday, March 10. If a majority of parents support the recommendation to become a non-ranking campus (bottom 90 percent only), Principal Taylor will submit a final recommendation to the superintendent. If you would like to review more detailed information about the advantages of not ranking students or answers to frequently asked questions before taking the survey, please view the AHS Class Rank Presentation at the following link: http://austin.austinschools.org/sites/austin.austinschools.org/files/page-uploads/ahs_class_rank_recommendation.pdf.
