Selected Level 1 and elective courses, Honors Level, and Advanced Placement courses are given additional weight for purposes of calculating a student's class rank and honor roll status.
To obtain the weighted grade, the grade assigned by the teacher is multiplied by the number of credits established for the course and then by a factor of 1.01 for Level 1 and elective courses, 1.03 for Honors Level courses, or 1.06 for Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment courses.
The courses are weighted due to increased student workload and teacher expectations. Weighting for each course is defined with the course description. The actual grade assigned by the teacher appears on the report card.
