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
