Example 1:
schedule
 
GRADES:  At the end of each semester, students earn a LETTER grade for each course. 
Example 2:
semester grades
          • "A-G" requirement passing grades = C or higher
          • GRADUATION requirement passing grades:  D or higher
          • Fail = F
Note: Students are expected to repeat:
          • "A-G" courses with a "D" or "F" grade
          • non- "A-G" courses with an "F" grade 
 
 
CREDITS:  Each grade will then be converted to credits
 
GRADE - CREDIT CONVERSION CHART:
credits conversion
See "Example 2" above: If a student passes all six (6) classes per semester:
the student will earn a total of 30 credits each semester
or 60 credits in a school year
 
REPEAT CREDITS:  Students can repeat  a course with a "D" or "F" grade
  • If repeating a course with an "F" grade: A student can repeat the course to earn credits. Credits will be issued to the course with the passing grade. Example:
repeat F
 
  • If repeating a course with a "D" grade: A student can repeat the course to earn a better grade; however, no additional credits will be given to the same course.  The credits will be issued to the course with the higher grade; the course with the lower grade will show a "0" credit.  Example:
repeat D
 
TRANSCRIPT: A school transcript is a permanent record that records all courses taken during a student's high school years.  No data will be deleted because courses were repeated for credits or for better grades. Example: 
transcript
Picture above: This student repeated English 1A for a better grade and credits. 
Note: the course with the F remains on the transcript.

What is GPA?
It is often difficult to determine how well students did overall by just looking at a series of grades.  Hence, all grades are converted and averaged to one numeric figure called GPA.
Grade Point Average (GPA)  = a numeric score used to evaluate a student's overall academic performance. 
Unweighted GPA: GPA calculated on a 4.00 scale as shown below:
GRADE
Point
(4.0 Scale)
A
4
B 3
C 2
D 1
F 0
 
Weighted GPA: Certain courses such as Honors or Advanced Placement courses are considered more difficult and hence are given extra points.  Weighted GPA is measured using a 5.00 scale:
GRADE
Point
(5.0 Scale)
A
5
B 4
C 3
D 1
F 0
Note: "D" and "F" grades DO NOT earn an extra point
 
On PUSD Transcript:
Term GPA /Semester GPA: an average of grades a student received in a given semester.
Cumulative/Overall GPA: an average of grades a student received in all semesters in high school.
