Family and guests cannot save large sections for seating.  Please plan to arrive together if you need a large block of seats.

  • The Bedford County School Board approved a revision to regulation IK-R at its December 2013 meeting. The high school graduation recognition section was altered based on the timeline for determining honors based on our current and future calendars:
    • Graduation Recognition:The graduation distinction of honors or high honors status is determined by numerically calculating cumulative grade point averages of students classified as seniors. Students are recognized as achieving high honors status when their grade point average is 4.0 or above. Students are recognized as achieving honors status when their grade point average is 3.75-3.99. Grade point averages will be figured at the end of the first semester for this purpose. Final transcripts will reflect the ending grades and class rank of all students.
