     Membership    
           Membership is made up from the student body in the 11th and 12th grades at FCHS, who have met the qualifications established in the FCHS Beta handbook. The method of selection of members of the Floyd County High School Beta Club shall be as follows:
    • The scholastic requirements for membership shall be an average of 3.3 or better at the time the student becomes a fully qualified Junior or Senior.
      • This GPA requirement was ratified in 2010/2011 and will increased to 3.5 or better begining with the class of 2016.  When these students are juniors during the 2014/2015 school year, the 3.5 requirement was applied for the first time and continue for future classes.
    • The screening committee, consisting of the faculty members employed at FCHS, shall be appointed by the Principal. The committee shall screen all juniors and seniors that meet the scholastic requirements and then decide which students fulfill the other requirements of character, achievement and citizenship.
    • New members will be inducted in an annual induction ceremony (This year's ceremony was April 5, 2016).  Next year, we are tentively planning for the next induction ceremony in December, 2016.
