Grading Scale – GPA Grades 6-12
Unweighted grade point average or GPA is based on a scale that begins with a 0 and having a ceiling of 4.3. To account for added rigor, weighted Honors GPA is .5 higher than the general unweighted GPA. Weighted AP GPA is 1.0 higher than the general unweighted GPA.
A grade of “I” (Incomplete) will be given to those pupils unable to complete the work assigned to the course for reasons beyond the pupil's control, such as the pupil's disability:
- A teacher who submits a grade of “incomplete” will accompany the grade with a reasonable estimate of the amount of time the pupil will require to complete the work necessary for the granting of credit.
- Except as may be required by unusual circumstances, make up work should be completed within two weeks of the end of the marking period, or if the pupil is disabled at the end of the marking period, two weeks after the pupil's return to school.
- The pupil's completed work will be graded and the teacher will submit the grade earned on a completed grade change form, which will replace the incomplete grade on the pupil's transcript.
- A pupil who does not complete the work within the period allowed will receive a grade of an “F” in the subject.
A grade of “NG” (No Grade) will be given to those pupils who do not have sufficient grade entries to calculate a fair grade reflective of a student’s performance.
