A student may withdraw from a
course without penalty during the first three weeks of the
semester. If the
course is a 9 week class, this would apply to the marking
period. If a
student drops the course after this period, they will
receive a failing grade for the semester.
A student who successfully completes a
one semester of a course that meets one period per day will
earn one credit.
A student who successfully completes an
approved, one semester, two or three credit hour course
through dual enrollment, will earn one credit.
A student who successfully tests out of
a one semester course that meets one period per day will
earn one credit.
A student who successfully completes
one semester of a CCISD Career and Technical Education class
that meets two periods per day will earn two credits.
Credit Requirements for Class
Promotion of middle school students to
the next grade level is made on an individual basis by the
principal, in consultation with the studentís teachers and
the guidance counselor, based on the studentís current level
of achievement, potential for success at the next level, and

requirements are met, or the student has completed the goals
and objectives of an Individualized Education Plan.
It is the studentís responsibility to keep in contact
with the guidance counselor to ensure that all requirements
are being met.

Grade Point Average
Unified Grading Scale
Lake Linden-Hubbell School
District has a standard grading procedure to indicate the
extent to which a student has acquired the necessary
learning in each class.
Students are generally assigned grades based upon
test results, homework, projects and classroom
Each teacher may place a different emphasis on these areas
in determining a grade and will so inform the students at
the beginning of the course work.
Questions about the grading of a particular class
should be directed to the teacher.
The grading system is as follows:
There is still work to be completed prior to issuing
a final grade.
Sufficient work was completed, but a letter grade was

was not issued.
receive a semester grade based on the two marking periods
and the semester exam.
The marking period grades are 1.5 times their normal
weight, and the semester exam is weighted as one.
Using the eleven-point system shown below, the
marking period grades and the exam grade are added together,
and then divided by four to determine the numerical value of
the semester grade.
If the resulting number is between whole numbers, it
is rounded up at .5 or higher, and rounded down if it is
less than .5. If
any two of the three grades are failing grades, the semester
grade is automatically a failing grade.
In the event that there are only two grades (student
exempt from taking the semester exam), the grades will be
averaged using the eleven point scale.
E (2 failing grades)
overall or cumulative grade point average is the numerical
average of all of his or her semester grades on a four point
scale as listed below.
Each semester grade is converted to a number on the
four-point scale, they are added, and the sum is divided by
the total number of grades.
The overall grade point average is used to determine
sports eligibility and honor roll, and is typically used for
college admissions and scholarship applications.
Semester grades of P or U are not included in any
grade point average computation.
academic grade point average is figured in the same manner
as the overall grade point average, but using only grades
from courses that are academic in nature.
Courses that are hands-on, such as art, band,
physical education and woods are not included in the
academic grade point average.
The academic grade point average is used to determine
the Valedictorian and Salutatorian, membership in the
National Honor Society, and Senior Honor Students for
For a complete list of courses excluded from the academic
grade point average, see the guidance counselor.
The Honor Roll is posted after each
quarter, and is based on the overall grade point average for
the quarter. In
the high school, honor roll designation is divided into
three parts: All Aís (4.00), 3.5 to 3.99, and 3.00 to 3.49.
The middle school honor roll is also based on the
overall grade point average for the quarter, but is
separated into only two parts: All Aís (4.00) and 3.00 to
