COMPUTING A GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA) 19

All state credits, except those listed below, will be used for computing a student’s grade point average (GPA). GPA will factor in “weighted” grade values as designated by using the above chart appropriate for the year the student entered high school. Numerical grades on the AAR (transcript) do not show any added points for weighting the GPA. 19

The following courses will not be used in computing the GPA. • Correspondence courses 20

• Summer school courses 20

• Credit by exam for acceleration or with prior instruction 20

• Concurrent enrollment and dual credit college courses 20

• Local credit courses (Physical Education and Athletics classes shall be counted for Grade Point Average calculations) 20

Senior grade point averages will be computed after the fifth 6-weeks grading period of the senior year. 20
