Grades and Attendance

Grades

  • Freshman may not take graded courses. All classes will appear on the student's transcript. The student will receive a P (pass, credit earned) or an AU (audit, no credit earned). A student who does not meet the academic requirements of the class will receive an AU grade. Neither grade affects the grade point average.
  • Graded Courses: Rising Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors earn letter grades, as they do in the regular school year. Students may not take these courses for audit credit. Students must register for Summer School in levels consistent with their 2015-2016 school year placements. Any change in level requires a "Parent Request for Change of Level" form obtained from the Department Chair and submitted prior to the first day of Summer School.
  • Enrichment and Sports Courses: Rising Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors. These courses will appear on the student's transcript with a P (pass, credit earned) or an AU (audit, no credit earned). A student who does not meet the academic requirements of the class will receive an AU grade. Neither grade affects the grade point average.

Attendance

An incoming Freshman who exceeds the absence limit for a class will not receive credit and may be dropped from that class. Three tardies to a class will be counted as an absence. Any single tardy beyond 30 minutes will be counted as an absence.

For Rising Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors for attendance purposes, a 1-credit course consists of two semes­ters, and the attendance rules apply accordingly; i.e., a student may miss no more than 2 days per semester. Three tardies to a class will be counted as an absence. Any single tardy beyond 30 minutes will be counted as an absence.

  • A course that meets 2 hours/day for 3 1/2 weeks has an absence limit of 2 days.
  • A course that meets 2 hours/day for 7 weeks has an absence limit of 4 days (2/semester).
  • A course that meets 4 or 5 hours/day for 7 weeks has an absence limit of 4 days (2/semester).
  • Please note exceptions for Consumer Seminar (Web-based) and Driver Education.
  • Absence limits are prorated for classes that meet outside the traditional semester schedule (see course descriptions).
  • All students in Academic courses must be present on the day of the final exam.

NOTE:

A student who exceeds the absence limit in an enrichment course will not receive credit and may be dropped from the class.

A student who exceeds the absence limit before the drop date for a graded course will be dropped from the class, will receive no credit, and will not be allowed to return to class.

A student who exceeds the absence limit after the drop date in a graded course will receive an F grade and will be removed from the class.

DROP DATES

A student who chooses to drop a graded course must do so before the deadline, or the course will appear on the transcript with a grade of WP (Withdraw/Pass) or WF (Withdraw/Fail).
