HISD Policy Change

Parents should note that the HISD board has enacted a policy for all HISD high schools under which a student's high school GPA "shall only include semester averages of courses taken and competed in grades 9-12."  Students still receive credit for high school credit courses taken in middle school, but grades from those courses are not computed in determining high school GPA and class rank.  This policy was voted on by the school board over the summer as is effective for students entering high school during the current school year or later, so it will effect all current middle school students.  The policy can be reviewed here.
