SAHS Grading Policies
1. Grading Scale
2. Class Ranking
Beginning with 8th grade, class ranking computations will include College Prep (Advance), Honors, and Advanced Placement based on the South Carolina Uniform Grading scale
3. South Carolina Uniform Grading Scale
When the Life scholarships were created, the General Assembly directed the State Board of Education to develop and adopt a uniform grading scale to be implemented in all public schools of the state no later than the 2000–01 school year. In 1999, the State Board of Education adopted the first uniform grading policy to be applied to all students who first enrolled in the ninth grade class for the 2000–01 school year. This policy was in effect until the end of the 2006–07 school year.
In January 2007, the State Board of Education approved the revised uniform grading policy to ensure its alignment with recommendations in the Report of the South Carolina High School Redesign (March 2006) and the Education and Economic Development Act (2005). The revised policy is effective for all students in the 2007–08 school year.
The entire document can be found on the State Department of Education's web site: www.ed.sc.gov or in the District Course Catalog under State Uniform Grading Policy.
The uniform grading scale and system for figuring GPR and class rank will apply to all courses carrying Carnegie, including units earned at the middle school.
Grade point ratios will be figured uniformly in all schools using the following formula. The formula will yield each student's GPR that can then be ranked from highest to lowest rank in class. Computations will not be rounded to a higher number. All diploma candidates are included in the ranking.
GPR = sum(quality points x units)/sum of units attempted.
