Grade Point Average - How to Calculate
Grade Point Average or GPA is the average of the points earning during one grading period.  Remember that 6th grade students have two periods of English, so that grade will be calculated twice in the GPA. 

For example, a student earned the following academic grades on the report card:
Per 1(Advisory) - NG - Students do not earn academic grades in advisory.  This class does not count toward the academic GPA but does count toward the citizenship GPA.
Per 2 - B    (3)
Per 3 - C    (2)
Per 4 - A    (4)
Per 5 - F    (0)
Per 6 - B    (3)
Per 6 - C    (2)
Total Points   14 divided by the number of classes - six (6) = 2.33 academic GPA
  
Report Card Comments - A Teacher/Parent Communication Tool
On every progress report or report card, teachers have the opportunity to add comments for parents.  Informative in nature, codes may or may not require student or parent action.  If you have a question about a grade or a comment, please contact your student's teacher.
