HIGH SCHOOL - APPENDIX A: DETERMINING THE FINAL AVERAGES FOR COURSES

1. Assign final averages as follows:
A= 90% - 100% - 3.5- 4.0
B= 80% - 89% -  2.5 - 3.4
C= 70% - 79% - 1.5 -2.4
D= 60% - 69% - 1.0 -1.4

F= (59% and below) - Below 1.0

2. Assign points to each grading period (GP) grade, the EOC and the final exam as follows:
A= 90%-100% - 4
B= 80% - 89% - 3
C= 70% - 79% - 2
D= 60% - 69%  -1

F= (59% and below) - 0

3. Final grade will be determined based on the following formulas:

Courses with a district-EOC/CGA or required teacher final exam or project

For a .50 credit course with a district EOC:
(Q1 + Q2)/2 x .8 + ( EOC [ converted to 0-4] x .2) = final grade
(A + B)/2 x .8 + (B x .2) = final grade
(4 + 3)/2 x .8 + (3 x .2) = final grade
3.5 x .8 + .6 = final grade

2.8 + .6 = 3.4 = B

Courses with no district or state EOC (applies to the first semester of a two semester high school course)
For a .50 credit course with no district EOC:
(Q1 + Q2)/2 = final grade
(A + C)/2 = final grade
(4 + 2)/2 = final grade

3 = B

NOTE: EN 1 and 2 (standard and honors) and Intensive Reading and Intensive Math use state assessments for CAST and do not have a district EOC. Final grades will be calculated based on quarter grades.

State mandated re-averaging of a course grade

When a student fails one half of a full credit course and the averaging of the two halves would result in a passing grade for a full credit the grades obtained in each half :
(Q1+ Q2 + Q3 + Q4)/4 x .8 + ( EOC [ converted to 0-4] x .2) = final grade
(F + D + C + B)/4 x .8 + (C x .2) = final grade
( 0 + 1 + 2 + 3)/4 x .8 + (2 x .2) = final grade
(1.5 x .8 ) + .4 = final grade
1.2 + .4 = 1.6 = C
Note: The District approved assessment for content term 2 of the course will be used for the 20% calculation.
Per State Board Rule this only applies to the first attempt at the courses. Subsequent retakes of the courses fall under the grade forgiveness policy.
