  29. This academic recognition plan includes all courses attempted by students for all 8 terms of the high school career. • The GPA is based on a four-point scale with internal weighting only (3 points on the final numerical grade for an honors course and 5 points on the final numerical grade for an Advanced Placement course).

  30. CREDITS • Must earn credits to move on to next grade (each course is worth 1 credit). • You need: 6 credits to be a sophomore 12 credits to be a junior 18 credits to be a senior 26 credits to GRADUATE • You can earn 8 credits per year.

  31. G.P.A. • Means “grade point average” • ALL courses that you take in HS count toward your final G.P.A. on a 4-point scale • An “A” is worth 4 points • A “B” is worth 3 points • A “C” is worth 2 points • A “D” is worth 1 point • An “F” is worth 0 points • Honors classes are internally weighted (+3 added to final average), so a 4.0 is the highest that you can achieve in any class.

  32. RTI : Response to Intervention Beginning in 2016-17, high schools incorporated RTI into the schedule for freshmen and sophomores in an effort to move the students to grade level for math and reading. We will get a list of Tier II/III students from each middle school and will continue to help the students work on remediation and basic skills.
