Highlights from the LCISD Secondary Course Catalog

Schedule Changes


Schedule change requests will be considered during the first 4 days of the school year for the following reasons:
* Student is a senior not scheduled in a course needed for graduation
* Student has already earned credit for a course in which he/she is currently scheduled
* Student does not have prerequisite(s) for a class on his/her schedule
* Student has previously failed a course with the same teacher
* Student has been dismissed from a program where approval must be granted for placement
* Data error (no lunch, class listed twice, free period, etc.)



Course Level Changes


To be considered for a level change from an Academic, PreAP, or AP course, the student must have made a sincere effort to succeed by attending tutorials, completing his/her work and conferencing with his/her teacher.  A parent conference with the teacher is recommended before a level change request is made.  Course level changes will be considered through the first grading (six weeks) period plus one week for each course that offers a different level of the same course.

The grade a student has in a PreAP/AP course will follow them to the Academic level course as is, no grade weighting applied.  

If a student participates in a UIL activity, please weigh this decision carefully as the grades transferred from a dropped class can impact their eligibility if made after the end of the first four school weeks.



Grade Classification


Freshman:  0-5.0 credits
Sophomore:  5.5-11.5 credits
Junior:  12.0-18.5 credits
Senior:  19+ credits



Grading System


Three 6 week grades average together for 80% of the semester grade and the semester exam counts as 20% of the semester grade.

A = 90-100
B = 80-89
C = 70-79
F = 69 and below
I = Incomplete
# = No credit due to excessive absences



Grade Point Average

Weighted Numerical Grade Point Average (will not appear on transcript, only for rank)
For purposes of CLASS RANK, a numerical multiplier will be given as follows to calculate a student's GPA:

AP Courses = 1.3
Dual/PreAP = 1.2
Academic = 1.1
Leveled Academic = 1.0

To calculate GPA for class rank, multiple each semester grade by the relevant multiplier above.  Divide the total points earned by the total number of semesters for the Numerical GPA.


5.0 Scale Grade Point Average (this one will appear on the transcript)
Calculation of students' official class rank is governed by Policy EIC (Local).  For the purposes of COLLEGE AND SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS, high schools will calculate GPA using the below 4.0 weighted scale:

  100-90  89-80  79-70 
AP Courses 
Dual/Select Articulated  4.75  3.75  2.75 
PreAP 4.50  3.50  2.50 
Academic 4.25  3.25  2.25 
Leveled Academic
