The semester grade is used to determine the number of grade points awarded for each course when calculating the student's grade point average.  Grade points earned in courses taken in grades 9-12 are used to determine rank in the graduating class.

The following will not be calculated in the GPA:

  • Courses taken prior to grade nine

  • Correspondence courses

  • Credit by examination

  • Summer school courses

  • Online courses taken outside of the regular school day

  • Dual credit, with the exception of Clear Horizons Early College High School students

  • Credit recovery

  • Credits from non-accredited institutions

  • Alternative Physical Education credits

  • Any other means beyond the regular school day

    Class Rank

    See Policy EIC (Local)

    Class rank shall be based upon the grade point average. It is determinedby dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total numberof semester units attempted, resulting in a maximum grade point averageof 6.0. In case of ties in rank, “Those students who are tied should begiven the same rank, one position below the next highest student. Thestudent next below those tied should be given a rank determined by thetotal number of students whose average exceeds this.” (From Rank in Class by the Joint Committee on School-College Relations of AACRAO and NASSP.)

    For Seniors Only: Class Rank will be calculated only after the END ofeach semester. In order to be considered for honors, a student must havecompleted all outside course work before the end of the first nineweeks of the spring semester with the exception of dual credit coursesin progress. This includes DAP Scholar Honor Graduates. Aftergraduation, final class rank is determined and recorded on the academicachievement record.

    Classifications by Credit

    Classifications are made at the beginning of each school year withreclassification at mid-year for students who were retained, enablingstudents to be promoted to the next grade level. Students may notreplace a lunch period with a credit class.

    Students are classified according to the number of state credits they have earned. Required state credits are listed below:
