Many classes such as Math and World Languages follow a sequence. Course sequencing means that you may start at the level appropriate for you. Teachers usually make recommendations to students for best placement in class levels. Then, you must pass the semester before moving on to the next. Please see the Student Services Guide for course sequencing.
Be aware there may be courses outside to the specific subject area department that can meet certain graduation requirements. For example: the 4th year math credit can be met by successful completion of Homebuilding, Computer Accounting I and II, Money Management I and II, etc. . . See credit_options_4/17/12-1.pdf below.
Understanding your Transcript and Graduation Credits
The Transcript is the official academic record for the student. Only final semester grades, credit earned, cumulative gpa and attendance are reported on Huron’s High School Transcript. Marking Period and Progress Report grades are not reported on the transcript and may serve as “warnings” to raise your grades before the semester ends. Transcripts are used for many purposes including College/University admission, Job Application/Employment and Insurance (ie: some Auto Insurance companies will give a reduced rate for student performing well academically)
Course credit for Graduation! Students may earn .5 credit for each class hour, each semester by passing a course with a minimum of a “D-“. Students who earn an “E”, “H” or “I” have not earned credit in the course. When a student completes the required coursework and earns the required number of credits he/she is eligible for graduation from Huron High School.
Grade Point Average — G.P.A. is the cumulative average to your High School grades. Huron works on a 4.0 scale with a 4.0 being the highest G.P.A. possible representing all A’s. When reporting grades to the transcript, it is the actual grade earned for the class that is reported on the transcript. However, the grade is weighted for regular, AC or AP classes when calculating G.P.A.. See your Student Services Guide for grade point weighting.
