Students may elect to participate in an intervention program during the summer and have an additional opportunity to take the test in June.
GPA Ranking GPA SCALE HAS CHANGED BEGINNING WITH THE CLASS OF 2014 Course grades are based on + / - scale. We will be using the following scale to compute GPA’s. AP Courses are weighted 1 point for grades C- or above. A+98-100%4.0 A93-97%4.0 A-90-92%3.7 B+88-89%3.3 B83-87%3.0 B-80-82%2.7 C+78-79%2.3 C73-77%2.0 C-70-72%1.7 D+68-69%1.3 D63-67%1.0 D-60-62%.7 F0-59%0
Weighted Grades AP classes are weighted for grades of C- or higher. This means that an A = 5 pts. B = 4 pts. etc. for AP classes only GPA’s can be over 4.0 Valedictorian – 3 AP courses and a 4.1 or higher Salutatorian – 2 AP courses and a 4.0 or higher

Physical Education Waiver o Students may opt to waive their PE classes by participating in & successfully completing two seasons of an OHSAA approved sport or Marching Band o At the conclusion of each athletic season, the Athletic Dept. and Marching Band Director (fall only) will provide the Counseling Office with a list of students who completed the season. The students will be awarded one PE waiver on their high school transcript. At the conclusion of each school year, the AFJROTC instructor will provide the Counseling Office with a list of students who completed a full year of AFJROTC. These students will also be awarded a PE waiver on their high school transcript. Students not wishing to take part in the PE waiver should submit a letter to their high school counselor. o PE coursework beyond the 2 required semesters will not count towards elective credit.
Students will now only be able to drop courses ONE time during their high school career without penalty after the first two weeks of the start of a course. A “W” indicating Withdrawal from the course will be entered on the transcript. This does not affect the GPA. All courses dropped after this option is used, will result in an F. This will be entered on the transcript and will affect the GPA. If a student has dropped courses prior to the 2013-14 school year, he/she will still be granted the one-time “W” option.
The following restrictions are placed upon this choice: No required core course may be taken pass/fail. No more than one credit may be elected in a given subject area during the four years of high school. PowerSchool will indicate actual grade percentage earned. A student may choose to return to the standard letter grade anytime prior to the end of the course. If this option is selected, the student is responsible for making the request in writing to their Guidance counselor by the end of the course. The student will then receive a letter grade for the final grade of the course. When the student drops the pass/fail option, they may not use the pass/fail option for another course in that school year. Application must be returned to guidance no later than the end of course’s 1st Term.
APEX is the program used for credit recovery. APEX will no longer be offered for new credit. The passing grade required for all APEX coursework is a 70% If you are currently struggling, there is plenty of time to earn your credits. APEX is not the answer. A failing grade in any course will follow and affect you in your future education goals. If you are concerned about your current classes, please make time to talk to your teachers before or after school. You may also schedule an appointment with Mrs. Scott (Ms. Darcy).
Study hall option is only open to students taking an AP course or another course offered for college credit. Seniors must take a minimum of 6 credit hours
