Progress reports are issued at the end of the defined marking periods. The final grade report is posted online at the end of the school year. All reports contain numerical grades and attendance. Credits toward graduation are recorded on the grade reports at the completion of each course. The minimum passing score for all courses is 70. The letter grade equivalents for numerical grades are as follows:
90 – 100 = A 80 – 89 = B 74 – 79 = C 70 – 73 = D Below 70 = FRANK IN CLASS, WEIGHTED AND NON-WEIGHTED NUMERICAL AVERAGES AND GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA)
Rank in class is determined by the cumulative weighted numerical average (CWNA) of all grades in accumulated courses. All required and elective courses are utilized in computation of the cumulative weighted and non-weighted numerical averages and the high school weighted and non-weighted grade point averages (GPA). To calculate the cumulative weighted numerical averages, five points are added to the numerical grade for each Honors course completed in Henry County Schools, and ten points for each Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment course completed in Henry County Schools. HOPE GPA is calculated by the Georgia Finance Commission. You can obtain this calculated GPA by logging into your GaFutures account.
VALEDICTORIAN, SALUTATORIAN, HONOR GRADUATES, AND “A” AVERAGE RECOGNITION
To be eligible for selection as valedictorian or salutatorian in Henry County Schools, students must have been enrolled in this system for the four semesters immediately preceding graduation. All units of credit earned prior to enrollment must have been earned from a state and regionally accredited school. The valedictorian, salutatorian, and honor graduates will be determined by using the cumulative weighted numerical average calculated on the final Friday in April of the senior year. “A” average graduates must have at least a 90.0 cumulative weighted numerical average*.
