Academic Standards/Grading

Academic Integrity (español)

Students are expected to adhere to the district's Academic Integrity Policy (Board Policy 9000) where plagiarism and cheating are defined. Attempted cheating, even when unsuccessful, will be treated as academic dishonesty and will be dealt with as such.

  • 1st Offense = Teacher intervention
  • 2nd Offense = Administration intervention

Consequences include, but are not limited to the following: warning, parent/student conference, grade reduction, failing grade, removal or suspension from course and/or school.

TMJH Grading Standard

The student's grade point average (GPA) is calculated on a quarterly basis. The GPA is determined by converting letter grades to a numerical grade point.

A (93%) = 4.0
A- (90%) = 3.7
B+ (87%) = 3.3
B (83%) = 3.0
B- (80%) = 2.7
C+ (77%) = 2.3
C (73%) = 2.0
C- (70%) = 1.7
D+ (67%) = 1.3
D (63%) = 1.0
D- (60%) = 0.7
F (0-59%) = 0.0

Not all classes earn a letter grade. The following grade designations are excluded from the GPA: Pass (P), No Grade (NG), No Credit (NC), Incomplete (I), Withdraw-Pass (WP) and Withdraw-Fail (WF).

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are available in grades 9-12. AP courses earning a letter grade of C- or better will have an enhanced (weighted) cumulative GPA of +.0125 per quarter, per AP class.

Attention 9th Graders! Your grades count toward high school graduation! Students who receive F's (0 credit) in any of their 9th grade core classes (English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Comp Tech, and PE) must make up those failed quarter grades in order to graduate. Students must meet with their Guidance Counselor for remediation options.

How to Calculate GPA:

Total the grade points for all classes that earn a letter grade (A-F), then divide the total by the number of classes earning a letter grade. The GPA is rounded to the nearest thousandth (x.xxx). Here are some examples:

Student has 8 grade-earning classes:
3.7 + 4.0 + 3.7 + 3.3 + 3.0 + 3.0 + 3.0 + 3.3 = 27.0 total / 8 classes = 3.375 GPA

Student has 8 grade-earning classes, including one AP class that earned a B+:
3.7 + 4.0 + 3.7 + 3.3 + 3.0 + 3.0 + 3.0 + 3.3 = 27.0 total / 8 classes = 3.375 + .0125 = 3.388 GPA

Student has 8 grade-earning classes, including one class that earned an F:
3.7 + 4.0 + 3.7 + 3.3 + 3.0 + 3.0 + 3.0 + 0.0 = 23.7 total / 8 classes = 2.963 GPA

Student has 7 grade-earning classes, and one Teacher's Aide class that is graded as Pass (P):
3.7 + 4.0 + 3.7 + 3.3 + 3.0 + 3.0 + 3.0 = 23.7 total / 7 classes = 3.386 GPA

Student has 6 grade-earning classes, and two Parent Release periods:
3.7 + 4.0 + 3.7 + 3.3 + 3.0 + 3.0 = 20.7 total / 6 classes = 3.45 GPA

TMJH Honor Roll:

High Honor Roll = 3.75 - 4.00 GPA
Honor Roll = 3.50 - 3.74 GPA

Transfer Grades and Outside Credits:

Treasure Mountain Junior High and Park City High School (grades 9-12) are obligated to accept high school credits from other educational institutions reflecting the appropriate accreditation. A transcript or information from the school should reflect the accrediting agency. Transfer grades from other accredited schools are added to the 9th Grade Treasure Mountain Junior High School Transcript and the Park City High School Transcript under the quarter in which they are completed and as awarded by the other school. Transfer grades are calculated into the student's GPA using the Treasure Mountain and Park City High School grade point values. Park City High School reserves the right to deny credits that have not been properly approved.

Credit Remediation for 9th Grade:

According to PCSD Board Policy 9075, students who do not have adequate achievement in English, Math, Science and/or Social Studies during the school year shall be required to complete a remediation program in that or those subjects.

Remediation Programs include:

  • The Park City Learning Center provides opportunities for credit remediation after school daily during the school year and/or provides credit remediation opportunities during the summer break.
  • Students may also remediate credits through online courses or independent study programs.

Please visit the counseling office for an application and other necessary forms for any remediation program.

The Park City School Board requires that 9th grade students receive a grade or mark for each class taken for credit. A failing grade results in no earned credit. Teachers are responsible to ensure that the grade adequately reflects a student’s achievement, effort, and dedication. A grade also indicates a student’s standing in relation to his/her peers.
