Grading Policy

Each school year will be divided into four grading periods of approximately the same number of days.

Grades 6-12 will be tested in the following manner:

1. A nine weeks test will be administered each nine weeks in each subject for an hour and thirty minutes. Two tests will be given each day. Students will meet for a class the day before they have exam for that class. The nine weeks test counts 20% of the nine weeks average.

2. The semester average in each subject will be determined by adding the first nine weeks grade and the second nine weeks grade and dividing by two.

3. The yearly average in each subject will be determined by adding the first semester average and the second semester average and dividing by two.

4. Seniors may exempt an exam in any class at the end of the fourth nine weeks in which they have a 90 or better average for that nine weeks’ grading period. There will be no other exemptions.
