FAIRPORT, N.Y. (WROC) — A local high school is changing how they recognize student achievement.
In a letter to parents, Fairport High School Principal Robert Clark say they are stepping away from the valedictorian-salutatorian model. The school will now recognize student achievement with magna cum-laude, summa cum laude and cum laude honors.
All eligiable students will not have a change to apply to speak at graduation.
Clark said this move is in the best interest of students and their mental health.
