DD came home from the meeting about this today, and I was surprised about how different it all is from back when I was inducted. I am wondering if it is this way everywhere now - is the difference the times, or the place?
When I was in HS, you had to have a certain level of grades, and not get "axed" by any teacher in the school for character issues. If you passed the cut, you were inducted the spring of your sophomore year and were "in" for the rest of your school years.
Now, at DD's HS, they look at grades for Freshman and Sophomore years. You must meet a certain gpa standard. Then you fill out an application, accumulate community service hours, you must participate in at least 2 school clubs, etc. At the end of the year, you can be inducted, and to retain membership you must continue to log the clubs, community service each marking period, and keep your grades above the cut off.
I have no problem with how it's all set up - - I just was surprised at how much more is involved than there used to be.
Any one know the process/requirements at your HS?
