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

 

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.
