Weighted Grading

Description: 
How the district weights grades when calculating class rank, including Valedictorian & Salutatorian, Honor Graduate Designation, and Scholarship Eligibility and Determination. Cairo-Durham Central School District recognizes that increased academic rigor improves College and Career Readiness. In order to encourage students to continuously challenge themselves by taking courses of increased academic rigor, grade weights will be determined based on each course’s level of academic rigor. In order to recognize that the academic rigor of courses varies, the Cairo-Durham School District is implementing a weighted grading policy that will be used in the calculation of class rank.
