Semester Grades

A standardized grading policy is adopted by Lancaster High School and is assigned to various aspects of classroom performance. Extra credit for activities such as folders, oral/written reports, or other projects is allowed for all

students within each set weight. Grade weight parameters are:

Test or Major Assignment                 40% of 6-weeks grade

Classwork                                             40% of 6-weeks grade

Homework or Minor Assignment     20% of 6-weeks grade


Semester grades are awarded using an average of the first six-weeks period (75%) and the semester exam(25%).

Numerical grades will be issued in all courses. Grade ranges are as follows:

90-100 = A                            80-89 = B

70-79 = C                              below 70 = Failing

I=Incomplete (Work must be made up or ā€œIā€ becomes a 50)

  • Students have one (1) day for every day absent, upon returning to school to complete work for removal of an

incomplete due to excused absence. Extenuating circumstances will be determined by the campus principal.

  • Numerical grades must be given for students withdrawing from the District. These grades will be calculated

based on the work completed by the student to the date of withdrawal.

  • Teacher will assign a minimum number of assignments per the LHS Grading System.
