receive a grade of 70 based upon course
standards. The school shall
report six
-
week grades to parents as numerical
scores. Semester grades will be recorded
on the student

s Academic Achievement
Record (AAR) or Transcript. Students
may earn .5 credit based on the semester
grade alone. Full credit may be earned
based on the
average of the semester
grades unless the course is a state
-
approved semester course, at which time
they will not be averaged.

course plan th
at

the sending school
requires. In order for students to be
eligible for Valedictorian or Salutatorian
status, they must have been a registered
full time student at JHS during the last 4
semesters (2years) prior to graduation.
