Every term in high school counts and is recorded on a student’s transcript, which is the equivalent as a permanent record card. A transcript will list every final grade, the number of credits earned as a result of satisfactorily completing a course and the cumulative number of credits within a subject earned over an academic year. In addition, the course designation is listed, which indicates whether it is honors, advanced placement, etc. Please note that Physical Education courses typically list 0.60 as their credit value, standard courses generally list a value of 1.00 and courses that meet more than one period in a day may have a credit value greater than 1.00. Parents should save every report card to cross-check with the grades on the transcript. Parents should also save report cards to cross-check them at the end of the school year. We encourage parents to take the opportunity to review the transcript with your student and your student’s guidance counselor each year.
