No more valedictorians at Kankakee High School

Graduation cap (MGN Online)

Kankakee High School will no longer have a valedictorian.

The school board made the decision to eliminate class rankings based on 'grade point averages'.

Instead, it's switching to a college-style Latin system.

This means honors will be given to recognize everyone who scores at a certain threshold.

School boards nationwide have taken similar steps to reduce pressure on students to achieve a top rank.
