Beginning with students entering grade 9 in the 2013–14 school year and thereafter, the District shall include in the calculation of class rank semester grades earned in high school credit courses, regardless of when the credit was earned, with the exception of grades earned in local credit courses and by credit by examination, with or without prior instruction.
Upon receiving prior written approval for enrollment from the principal, grades earned through distance learning (only from the University of Texas System, Texas Tech University, and the Texas Virtual School Network) (TxVSN) shall be included when calculating a student's weighted grade point average (GPA) and determining class rank.
All grade points awarded in the 2012–13 school year and in prior school years shall remain part of the student’s weighted GPA through graduation. Middle school students who passed an Advanced Placement (AP) exam in the 2012–13 school year shall be awarded 0.25 points towards their weighted GPA grade.
Each college and university has its own policies regarding AP® credit and placement. The College Board offers information about AP credit at thousands of college and universities at www.collegeboard.org/apcreditpolicy.
