Progress Report Cards

In high schools, progress report cards and semester grades will be recorded and made availalbe via the Parent Portal for each student. Passing semester grades for high school courses will be awarded five credits per course. Passing grades include A, B, C, or D grades. Progress grades will be mailed after the sixth and twelfth week of each semester for each subject. In addition,teachers must notify parents of the danger of failing a semester course during the last six weeks of the semester if no prior notification has been given.

Letter grades will be issued in subject matter as follows:

A = Excellent progress

B = Above average progress

C = Average progress

D = Below average

F = Failing

High school student semester grade points will be computed for courses on the following numerical value for all courses taken for the purpose of determining grade point average (GPA): A = 4; B=3; C = 2; D = 1; F = 0

For Advanced Placement and Honors level courses only, grade points will be computed on the following numerical value: A = 5; B = 4; C = 3; D = 1; F=0

When students with honors credits on their transcripts transfer from out of district or out of state schools, only courses designated as honors by CUSD and approved by the University of California will be recognized. Honors courses are approved on a school-by-school basis by the University of California. Students can submit their previous high school transcript to the universities for evaluation when they enroll.
