A student establishes membership by earning academic points. The number of points earned must be twice the number of academic subjects in which the student is enrolled, i.e., 10 points must be earned by a student enrolled in 5 eligible subjects, 12 points for a student with 6 subjects, etc. A minimum of 4 academic subjects is required.
CJSF semester points are calculated based on grades as follows:
A = 3 CJSF points
B = 1 CJSF point
1 extra point for an A or a B in an AP, IB, or Honors-designated course, not to exceed two such points per semester
C or Pass = 0 CJSF points
D or ” in any subject shall disqualify the student from membership for the semester.
No CJSF points shall be given for Physical Education, courses involving clerking or office/teacher assisting, and courses taken on a pass/fail basis.
Grades earned in summer school courses, repeated or remedial subjects shall not count for CJSF points, but grades in these subjects must be a C or better.
CJSF students may be disqualified from membership based on poor citizenship. It is the adviser and principal’s prerogative to determine disbarment.
