point rules for final grades

The Student Progression Plan states the updated policy eliminating midterm and final exams 
for secondary schools, a recommendation by secondary principals.

Point Rules
  • Students must earn a minimum of ten points on a 4.0 scale to pass annual  or semester courses.  Additionally, 9-12 graders must acquire at least five points in the second semester to pass the course.  
    The five point rule only applies to annual courses taken in grades 9-12.
  • For authorized annual courses, each of the four nine-week grading periods will have a 25% value (weight), with a provision for teacher override (each nine-week grading period is multiplied times 2.5). Teachers 
    may administer an assessment at the end of each nine-week grading period.  The value of the 
    assessment may not exceed 5% of the grade for each nine-week grading period.
  • For authorized semester courses, each of the two nine-week grading periods will have a 50% value (weight), with a provision for teacher override (each nine week grading period is multiplied times 5). Teachers 
    may
     administer an assessment at the end of each nine-week grading period.  The value of the 
    assessment may not exceed 10% of the grade for each nine-week grading period.
