Recognizing the academic achievement of students at Calhoun Middle-High School is taking a back seat again, with the school system failing to issue an Honor Roll for publication.

Following the dwindling of the Honor Roll during school year 2008-09, it was essentially discontinued during school year 2009-10.

The school issued the Honor Roll during the 2011-12 year, except for the final quarter.

Superintendent Roger Propst said in 2010 that the Calhoun school system would stick with publishing an Honor Roll, which would be issued in 7-10 days following completion of the reporting period.

In 2010, principal Karen Kirby said, "I personally have not had anyone comment to me on the subject."

Former board president Cynthia Dale said she had not received any complaints about dropping the Honor Roll, but believed in its' academic recognition.

This is a fourth year the school system was unable to issue the selection of the systems Teacher of the Year and Service Employee of the Year in a timely manner, selected in May at a special ceremony.

After Calhoun Middle-High School was listed as the worst performing school in West Virginia, Superintendent Propst said, "We're not here to make excuses...We're not hiding any failures."

"I told the WV Board of Education that Calhoun will not be 55th again," Propst told alumni at the 25th event Saturday.

The academic performance of state schools will be announced in August.
