If a student “drops” his/her credit advancement course(s) after the aforementioned deadline, the student will receive his/her “relative” grade for the credit advancement course, and that grade will be (A) used to calculate the student’s grade point average (GPA) and (B) recorded on the student’s transcript.  These grades cannot be removed from a student’s transcript -- even if a student retakes a course and successfully completes it.

Indiana Area School District grade guidelines will be used for all Summer School 2022 credit advancement courses.

 

For senior high credit advancement courses, the grade (0, 1, 2, 3, or 4) earned during each quarter of a course and on the course final exam (if applicable) will appear on the student’s report card at the end of each marking period during the upcoming (2021-2022) school year.  The student’s course grade will be recorded in the student’s school record and will be used to calculate the student’s grade point average (GPA).
