National Honor Society

Russia Chapter National Honor Society

The selection procedure for the National Honor Society is based on the four standards set by the national organization: scholarship, leadership, character, and service.

These are the minimum standards required, but the Faculty Council of each chapter may increase these standards if they desire.  Consideration for selection into the Russia Chapter National Honor Society is made after four semesters for students in grades eleven and twelve.  The following are the procedures and standards set by the Russia Faculty Council for selection and membership:

5. Students must maintain the high standards of the organization or face probation and dismissal.

The Faculty Council consists of the advisor, the principal, and hive high school teachers appointed by the principal.

Parents and students must understand that no student has a right to be selected for membership in a chapter of the National Honor Society.  Membership is a privilege which must be earned. The Faculty Council is entrusted with making selection decisions.  Reconsideration of a Faculty Council's decision is therefore a rare occurrence.  Students who question their non-selection do not have a legal right to a hearing, but they and their parents will be given an opportunity to present their complaints to the chapter advisor or principal.  The advisor or principal may reconvene the Faculty Council if this is warranted by a procedural error (a name inadvertently left off a list, mistake in averaging, etc.)

Anyone who has questions about these procedures should contact the school.
