Transcripts

TRANSCRIPT INFORMATION:

  • Once a student’s high school academic level course is on a transcript it cannot be removed. The transcript must include the student’s academic history for all high school level courses attempted, including courses taken before high school when the student or family requests the course to be added.
  • All occurrences of repeated courses must be included on the transcript, along with the letter grade earned in each of those occurrences. If a course is retaken for grade improvement, the course with the higher grade earned is included in the calculation of the student’s GPA. The credits attempted and credits earned of the lower graded course will be reported as 0.00 on the transcript. The credits from repeated courses may only be counted twice if both grades earned in a course are factored into the GPA calculation (e.g., two semesters of the same choir course). Otherwise credits from only one course may be counted. Districts cannot convert letter grades earned in a course to grades/marks not used in the GPA calculation; only the credits attempted and earned should be modified.
  • A repeat course for a better grade can count in either of the following ways. In either case, both courses and the letter grades are always displayed on the transcript. It is up to the school/district to determine if a course meets multiple credit types (i.e., Algebra I and an elective). If it is determined that the course does meet multiple credit types, then the student may decide to do either of the two options listed. 
  • Counting only one course as a replacement course for a better letter grade.
  • The old course still shows, but the credits earned, or credits attempted are reported as zero (0); therefore, it does not count in the GPA or toward graduation requirements.

  • Counting both courses toward different credit types. 

  • The old course shows, and the credits earned, or credits attempted are reported for both courses and count in the GPA. One course counts towards the subject credit for that course (i.e., Algebra I) and one may count toward another type of credit (i.e., elective). They cannot count toward the same type of graduation credit (i.e., Algebra I and Algebra I).
