Grading System

Students will receive a numerical grade for each course at the end of each quarter. This rule is not necessarily applicable to Independent Study, except as contracted. The quarter, semester and year grade will be a numerical grade. Work which is incomplete during the fourth quarter will be given an “F” grade and averaged with other grades that quarter.

The grading system used is as follows:

Percentage Range

  • 92 – 100 %
  • 84 – 91 %
  • 74 – 83 %
  • 65 – 73 %
  • 55 – 64 %
  • Below 55 %

Grade Description

  • Superior achievement
  • Good achievement
  • Average achievement
  • Minimum achievement
  • Failure due to unsatisfactory achievement
  • Ineligible for Summer School

Status

  • I – Incomplete
  • M – Medical excuse
  • P – Passing, pass/fail course
  • F – Failing, pass/fail course
  • WP – Withdraw, passing
  • WF – Withdraw, failing

PLEASE NOTE:

  1. The final average for each course will be computed by averaging the numerical grades for each quarter with both semester examination grades. The combined semester exam grades will always count as 20% of the final course grade.
  2. Report Cards are issued four times during the school term. The dates are listed on the district calendar. Interim reports are also issued four times a year midway through each quarter. LCTI issues report cards four times during the year for the courses studied there.
