Remote Grading Update
WCPSS made final decisions regarding how grades for seniors will be calculated for the 2019-2020 school year. The MHS grading information for seniors has been updated to include this information, and the full document can be accessed here. Please note these very important changes to grading procedures for seniors:
- Seniors in year-long courses will receive 0.5 credit based on their S1 (first semester) grades. S1 grades will post numerically on seniors’ transcripts and will be included in GPA calculations.
- Seniors in year-long courses will receive 0.5 credit based on their Q3 (third quarter) grades. Q3 grades will post on seniors’ transcripts as PC-19 or WC-19 and will not be weighted in GPA calculations.
- Seniors in Spring blocked classes will receive 1 credit based on their Q3 (third quarter) grades. Q3 grades will post on seniors’ transcripts as PC-19 or WC-19 and will not be weighted in GPA calculations.
- If seniors did not have a passing grade for S1 and/or Q3 in courses needed for graduation, they need to work with their teachers using a recovery plan to get both S1 and Q3 averages to at least 60 to earn credits. Teachers will give these seniors access to work ASAP.
- If seniors had passing grades for S1 in year-long courses, but would now like the opportunity to raise those grades since they will be posted on transcripts, then they must complete this form to indicate their requests by 5 pm on Thursday, April 30th. Teachers will give these seniors access to work by 8 am on Monday, May 4th.
- All work from seniors is due to teachers by 5 pm on Friday, May 15th. Contact teachers with questions regarding specific assignments and recovery plans.
Any senior who thinks higher S1 averages may change their senior honor designation must complete this form by 5 pm on Monday, May 18th for consideration.
