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.
Old Model Full Year Course- Examples
|1st 9 Weeks||2nd 9 Weeks||Midterm Exam||3rd 9 Weeks||4th 9 Weeks||Final Exam||Final Grade|
Old Model Semester Course- Examples
|1st/3rd 9 Weeks||2nd/4th 9 Weeks||Final Exam||Final Grade|
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
|A||4.0 - 3.5|
|B||3.49 – 2.5|
|C||2.49 – 1.5|
|D||1.49 – 0.5|
|F||0.49 – 0.0|
New Method Full Year Examples
|1st 9 Weeks||2nd 9 Weeks||3rd 9 Weeks||4th 9 Weeks||Final Grade|
|96% A||91% A||15 points/4|
A = 4
|B = 3||A = 4||A = 4|
3.75 = A
|25% F||20% F||73% C||75% C||4 points/4|
|F = 0||F = 0||C = 2||C = 2||1.0 = D|
New Method Semester Examples
|1st/3rd 9 Weeks||2nd/4th 9 Weeks||Final Grade|
B = 3
|A = 4||3.5 = A|
|20% F||80% B||3 points/2|
|F = 0||B = 3||1.5 = C|
- Students giving no effort (receiving 0%) the 3rd and 4th Nine Weeks may not pass a full year course regardless of the first semester performance.
- Students enrolled in College Credit Course courses must follow the syllabus and college grading requirements.
- Mid-Term and Final Examination will return for the 2021-2022 school year.
- Grading Policy will be examined at the conclusion of the 2020-2021 school year.
