What's this special issue all about??

Lately several students and parents have been asking us the same types of questions. So to better help all our students and parents, we decided to create a special newsletter to help answer these questions. The majority of the questions that our Student Achievement Coordinators and counselors receive all center around grades, progress, and course credit. So this newsletter will focus on explaining these topics better and hopefully helping our students and parents better understand their courses and High School credits.

Grades, more than a letter!!

One of the most common questions and misunderstandings comes from Grades. A students Grade is based on the work the student has completed at that point in time. So basically it covers all the work they have turned in so far. It is easy to become confused when most schools use both a number and lettering system for grades. Here is the basic breakdown for number grades translated into letter grades.

  • 100-90 is an 'A'
  • 89-80 is a 'B'
  • 79-70 is a 'C'
  • 69-60 is a 'D'
  • 59-0 is an 'F'

The mystery of the course grade

Along with the grade, there is something called the Course Grade. This is the students grade for the work they have completed and for the work remaining or missing. The remaining and missing assignments are calculated as zero's when being factored into the course grade. This doesn't mean the student actually earned a zero for those assignments, the course grade is simply showing what they students grade would be if they didn't complete the remaining or missing assignments.
