In accordance with Policy 8020: “Any high school course listed in the Middle School Course Catalog which is offered at the middle school is eligible for high school credit and will be treated as an equivalent.”
The student’s course grade will be recorded on the high school transcript.
The student’s grade will not be calculated into the high school grade point average.
If a student re-takes one of the high-school courses that was taken in middle school for which credit was earned:
The high school grade(s) will be calculated into the GPA, and
Only the first credit will be awarded.
If a student is receiving a full year of high school world language content within one middle school year, one high school credit will be awarded at the completion of that year. If a student is receiving the course content over two or three years, the high school credit will be awarded upon completion of the final year.
Please note that any middle school students enrolled in a high school level course who withdraws after the published withdrawal date of September 25, 2020 will receive a “W” on their high school transcript.

Courses with W codes will not receive credit and will not be calculated into the cumulative GPA.
