Important information from DHC Student Services Department!
The State Board of Education has approved a standard 10-point grading scale for all high school students beginning with the 2015-16 school year. This is a change from the current 7-point grading scale. Local school districts are required to follow the new scale at the high school level for grades 9-12. Under the new scale, grades and grade point average calculations will be applied as follows:
A: 90-100 = 4.0
B: 80-89 = 3.0
C: 70-79 = 2.0
D: 60-69 = 1.0
F: < 59 = 0.0
Additionally, new standards for quality points take effect statewide for 9th graders in the 2015-2016 school year. The new quality points standards will provide an additional 0.5 quality point to Honors courses and 1 quality point to Advanced Placement (AP)/International Baccalaureate (IB) courses, community college courses, or four-year university or college courses taken in high school. This change does not affect students who will be in 10 th , 11 th , or 12 th grade in 2015-16. This is a change from the current scale of 1 quality point for Honors courses and 2 quality points for AP/IB courses.
