Grade Point Average

The cumulative grade point average (GPA) of a student at the end of eight semesters of high school will be used to determine graduation honors. The GPA will be calculated on a weighted scale. AP and designated dual credit courses offered through Scottsbluff Public Schools will be used for weighting purposes. Transfer students may use AP courses from the school of origination in the weighting process. In order to be eligible for graduation honors, a student must complete all Scottsbluff High School graduation requirements and must be registered as a full-time Scottsbluff High School student (20 credits per semester) during their entire senior year.
