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:
97â100=A+ 87â89=B+ 77â79=C+ 67â69=D+
93â96=A 83â86=B 73â76=C 63â66=D
90â92=A- 80â82=B- 70â72=C- 60â62=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 âweightedâ 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 âDâ 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.
