Grading, High School
There are four (4) different Grade Point Averages (GPA) listed on the student transcripts.
1) Total GPA - This GPA is the total of all numeric grades, including failing grades, for the student, divided by the total number of attempted classes. This is based on 0 - 100.
To determine the number of attempted classes is as follows: classes that would give .5 units of credit count as 1 class. A class that gives a 1.0 unit of credit counts as 2 classes so for this class you would add the numeric grade twice. For example, if a student has taken 8th-grade algebra that gives a 1.0 unit of credit, and received a grade of 93, you would count the 93 twice and count the number of attempted classes as 2.
2) Total 4.0 GPA - This GPA is determined by the total grades for all classes, including failing grades, based on a 4.0 scale, divided by the total number of attempted classes. Each class grade would be awarded a number from the 4.0 scale based on the numeric grade, i.e. 90-100 = 4, 80-89 = 3, 70-79 = 2, below 70 = 0. Again, any 1.0 unit of credit class would be counted twice and the number of classes would be counted as 2. For example, a student who has taken 8th-grade algebra and received a grade of 93, that class would be labeled as a 4, you would count the 4 twice and the number of classes as 2.
3) Core GPA - This GPA is computed exactly like the Total GPA, but only includes classes in the core areas of Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Foreign Language. This is based on 0 - 100.
4) Core 4.0 GPA - This GPA is computed similar to the Total 4.0 GPA, but only includes classes in the core areas of Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Foreign Language. However, any class that is an Advanced Placement (AP) class will have the 5 additional quality points removed from the grade, and any class that is an Honors class will have the 3 additional quality points removed, before calculating the 4.0 GPA. For example, a student has taken Honors Biology A and made a numerical grade of 98 will have 3 points that are added for taking an Honors class removed, making the grade a 95, which would equate to 4.0. Now, if a student has taken the same class and made a grade of 90, the 3 points would be removed, making the grade an 87, which would equate to 3.0.
HOPE GPA - The Georgia Student Finance Commission calculates the GPA for the HOPE Scholarship.
Students in grades 9 - 12 will be given a numerical grade in all courses. A grade of “70” or above must be achieved to pass.
Seniors who have a cumulative average of 90 or above at the end of first semester have satisfied the GPA requirement for Honor Graduate recognition. In computing the numerical average for academic standing, grades received in those courses which are remedial or developmental will not be included. (Policy IHC)
In order to be an honor graduate a student must have 90 or above average.
Selection of Valedictorian/Salutatorian
The senior at each high school with the highest cumulative numerical grade point average at the end of the first semester shall be named valedictorian; the senior with the second-highest cumulative grade point average at the end of the first semester shall be named salutatorian. In the case of co-valedictorians (first honor graduates with identical averages), there shall be no salutatorian. In order to be considered for the honor of valedictorian or salutatorian, a student must be enrolled in the school for a minimum of two semesters prior to the calculation of rank in class. A student enrolled in a co-op program that is endorsed by HCBOE and approved by the school is considered eligible for the honor of valedictorian or salutatorian. Additionally, to be eligible to be named valedictorian or salutatorian, a student must be enrolled in and must meet the requirements for the college preparatory program of study.
Grades earned in classes that are remedial or developmental shall not be included when computing averages for academic honors.
A senior shall receive Advanced-Placement Honors by meeting the following requirements. This honor will be noted on the student’s transcript, diploma and a special system-wide stole/collar for the graduation exercises.

Bus service for students attending special education classes outside their home schools will be provided by the Board of Education as noted on the student's Individual Education Plan. Bus stops are assigned by the nearest practical route if the distance to the school is one and one-half miles or more. Stops are designated by the Transportation Department and based on distance to the next stop and safety of the location for pickup.
