How will the school closer affect the A+ Information? (Updated 4/7/20)

Seniors who had at least a 2.5 cumulative unweighted GPA at the end of the fall of 2019 or spring 2020 semester will be eligible for A+. The total number of required tutoring/mentoring hours has been reduced to 25 to accommodate those students who were unable to complete their 50 hours prior to high school graduation. The Algebra I End-of-Course exam requirement has been waived for all 2020 high school seniors, including those who have already taken the exam but did not meet the requirement in addition to those who have not yet taken the exam. Waiver of this requirement also exempts the 2020 seniors from having to meet the ACT math subscore/high school GPA alternative.

What about Dual Credit Classes? (Updated 4-7-20)

Students should continue to complete the coursework online. All instructors have opened their classes so that students can work at their own pace and have one final deadline for all work to be turned in.
