Grading Policy

Evaluation procedures for all students must be equitable and consistent. It is the responsibility of the administrators and staff to make professional judgments regarding the achievement of each student. It is the responsibility of each student to comply with the established regulations that affect academic performance.

Letter grades of A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D and E will be issued in all courses at semester intervals and at the end of the course (final grade) for all full year courses, and only at the end of the course for all semester courses (final grade.) Final exams are administered in all courses and constitute 10% of student’s final grade. Students will not receive credit for the course if an E is recorded as the final grade. Students must earn at least a 45 percent to be considered for summer school credit recovery opportunities.

Honor Roll

An Honor Roll is published to publicly recognize students for their academic performance. All students are eligible to be recognized as Honor Roll students provided they are enrolled full time at North Hills High School and have no incomplete or failing coursework. Grade point averages are calculated at the end of each semester and are weighted based on the rigor of the course. Highest Honor is awarded to students achieving above a 4.0 GPA, High Honor is awarded to students achieving between a 3.5 and 3.99 GPA and Honors is awarded to students achieving between a 3.0 and 3.49 GPA.

Student Progress

All students and parents have access to the district's online gradebook called ProgressBook. Grades are updated on a weekly basis to keep students and parents apprised of the academic performance. If you feel your child’s grade has not been updated, please call or email the teacher of the course in question. In addition dates have been established for more formalized notification of student progress. Online progress reports will be available during the first semester and the second semester. Hard copy report cards are issued at the conclusion of each semester.
