Struthers High School


Tuesday, January 19, the board of education took action to amend the high school grading policy. In the past high school grades were determined completely by percentages. For a full year course each nine weeks was weighted at 20% with the mid-term and finals at 10% each. Semester courses were weighted at 40% for each nine weeks and the final at 20%. Some examples are below.

For the 2020-2021 school year there will be no mid-term and final exams. For full year courses each nine weeks will count for 25%. Semester courses are weighed at 50% for each nine weeks. The method has been amended as well, to the following system using point calculations. A student receiving the following grade will receive the corresponding points: (Similar to G.P.A. Calculation)

A= 4 B=3 C=2 D=1 F=0

Full Year Classes- The four nine weeks added together /4
Semester Classes- The two nine weeks added together /2

The following chart will determine final grades

A4.0 - 3.5
B3.49 – 2.5
C2.49 – 1.5
D1.49 – 0.5
F0.49 – 0.0
