Grading

The semester grade will be determined by averaging the eighteen week grading period with the final exam.

100 - 90 = A  
89 - 80 = B I = Incomplete
79 - 70 = C  WP = Withdrawal Passing
69 - 60 = D  
59 and below = F  

                                                          

Students receiving an "I" have two (2) weeks in which to complete the work. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the teacher with regard to completion of course requirements. If the requirements are not completed within two weeks, the grade becomes an automatic "F."

 

Students withdrawing from a class AFTER the first nine weeks of a semester, will receive a "WP" if passing the class at the time of withdrawing and an "F" if failing at the time of withdrawal. Student permanent records reflect semester grades only.

 

Grade Point Average (GPA) - All courses will count in determining a student’s grade point average. Courses are designed as either weighted or unweighted. A weighted grade system is used at J.T.H.S to compute Grade Point Average (G.P.A.). Weighted grades take into account both student achievement and course difficulty. A grade weight is given to each course based upon its relative difficulty.

The following two-tiered weighting system will be used to compute Grade Point Average (G.P.A.).

 

Un-weighted Courses Weighted Courses
A          4 A        5
B          3 B        4
C          2 C        3
D          1 D        2
F          0 F        0

                                                           

Academic Recognition

J.T.H.S. has adopted a system of Cum Laude recognition based on the following G.P.A.:
 

3.5  - 3.74 = Cum Laude

3.75 - 3.99 = Magna Cum Laude

4.0 = Summa Cum Laude


Home Access Center

We strongly encourage all parents to monitor progress on a regular basis through the Home Access Center (H.A.C.). HAC is accessible over the internet and provides current information regarding students such as attendance, class work, discipline, interim progress, notes, registration, report card, schedule and transcript to students and their parents/guardians. Also, links are provided throughout for contacting each student’s teachers and counselor by email. Online help is available by clicking on “Help” in the upper right hand corner.

HAC is available at dist.jths.org/homeaccess or you can use the dropdown “Quick Links” option available in the upper right hand corner of our website at www.jths.org. For assistance, students can go to their main office and parents/guardians can either contact the Computer Services helpdesk by emailing hachelp@jths.org or by calling 815-774-7800.

 

Progress Reports - Progress reports will occur after six and twelve weeks.
