Melba High School was awarded Exemplary Achievement Status with an Award of Excellence for the 2013-2014 School Year by the Idaho High School Activities Association. Melba placed 3rd in the 2A Division state-wide. Way to go students and coaches!
Exemplary Achievement Status is awarded to schools of each classification that finish second and third in the final point compilation. The three major areas of high school activities are weighted equally in determining recipients of the award.
- The Academic Component is based on the varsity team’s cumulative GPA as submitted on the State Academic Champions application for all IHSAA sponsored sports/activity programs.
- The Performance Component is based on place of finish at IHSAA-sponsored state championships and activity program competitions.
- The Citizenship Component is based on a school’s self-evaluation of their citizenship/sportsmanship activities as submitted on an itemized form. Deductions are made by the IHSAA for player and/or coach unsportsmanlike ejections and also for unsportsmanlike school behavior at state tournaments.
In addition to the primary awards, schools that score 90% on the Citizenship Component and have no player/coach ejections throughout the year or incidents of unsportsmanlike school behavior at state tournaments will receive an “Award of Excellence” certificate.
