Grading Policy


Grades Represent Progress & Growth...



The Mt. Vernon Community School Corporation's Grading Policy is as follows:


At the end of each quarter, final examinations will be given in all subjects. Exams are weighted 20% of the quarter grade unless other calculations are approved by the administration and clearly stated in course expectation sheet.


Two categories will determine those listed on the honor roll:
  * All A Honor Roll – All grades must be an A- or above
  * A/B Honor Roll – All grades must be a B- or above with at least one grade being an A
An incomplete in any course will make a student ineligible for any honor roll. 
All students are eligible for the honor roll in every nine-(9) week grading period.

Students will be graded at Mt. Vernon High School on a percentage basis.   Percentages will be converted to letter grades and the 4.0 scale as follows:

Letter Grade Percent 4-Point Scale
A+ 100 4.0
A 95-99 4.0
A- 90-94 3.7
B+ 87-89 3.3
B 83-86 3.0
B- 80-82 2.7
C+ 77-79 2.3
C 73-76 2.0
C- 70-72 1.7
D+ 67-69 1.3
D 63-66 1.0
D- 60-62 .07
F 59 and below 0

*Report cards will be distributed to students on the Thursday following the end of the quarter.

All parents of MVHS students have access to their student’s progress via the Skyward Home Check program.  With this internet based system, parents can check on their student’s academic progress on a weekly basis. Beginning with the 2007-2008 school year, Mid Term Grades are no longer mailed home, but are available through Skyward Home.  For more information regarding this system, please contact the high school registrar.
