Nine week and final exam grades will be recorded in teacher grade books in accordance with a 0-100 point numerical scale and converted to a letter grade on the report card:

 

97–100=A+         87–89=B+          77–79=C+        67–69=D+

93–96=A              83–86=B            73–76=C          63–66=D

90–92=A-             80–82=B-          70–72=C-         60–62=D-        < 59=F

4.0 pts                    3.0                       2.0                      1.0

 

Weighted Courses and Grades: Some courses, because of level of difficulty and additional time required for mastery, carry a “weighted” grade when final point averages are computed.  Course weights are based on the grade standard four-point scale.  Grades of A, B or C in designated weighted courses will receive increased point values (A=5, B=4, C=3); however, a grade of “D” in a weighted course will receive a point value of one (1) regardless of the course.  Students should consult their counselor or the Secondary Program of Studies to determine which courses qualify for weighting.

 

Semester Course Grading: To pass and receive credit for any semester course (those that meet for 18 weeks), the final grade must be at least a 60%. The final grades for semester courses will be determined by counting the two nine week grades each as 40% of the final grade and the final exam as 20% of the final grade. Grades will be recorded as letters on the report card.

 

Year-Long Course Grading:  To pass and receive credit for any yearlong course the final grade must be at least 60%.  The final grades for yearlong courses will be determined by counting the four nine week grades each as 20% of the final grade and the midyear exam and final exam each as 10% of the final grade.  Grades will be recorded as letters on the report card.
