Type in how many credits you will take next year in each of the three GPA tiers. For more information about GPA tiers, scroll down to the bottom of this page. Remember that each semester grants 0.5 credit.
The District categorizes and weights courses as Tier I, Tier II, and Tier III in accordance with policy EIC (LOCAL). The Weighted GPA is used to determine local graduation honors and the highest ranking graduate.
Tier I courses include Advanced Placement (AP) courses, International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, dual credit courses, any courses for which a Tier I course is a prerequisite, and other rigorous District-designated courses.
Tier II courses include high school Pre-AP courses, Pre-IB courses, and other courses locally designated as honor courses.
Tier III courses include all other courses not designated as Tier I or Tier II courses.
|Grade||TIER I||TIER II||TIER III|
|97 and above||5.0||4.5||4.0|
|69 or below||0||0||0|
