Policy The primary purpose of grading is to keep parents and students fully informed of a student's progress and to provide a continuous and accurate record of each student's achievement for use in instruction.

The Board of Education shall approve the grading and reporting systems as developed by the administration and faculty and upon recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools.

It is the policy of the Board of Education that a grade in an honors class or an advanced placement class is given added weight for purposes of calculating grade point average and determining class rank. The administration shall develop and publish a formula for calculation of grade point average and class rank reflecting the weighted grading system. The Superintendent or his/her designee shall ensure that parents are notified of this policy.
