CHA Grading Policy
There are four quarters to the school year, and two quarters per semester.
Students earn final grades at the end of each quarter, or approximately every eight weeks.
At the midpoint of every quarter, progress reports are issued and sent home to update parents/guardians about their student’s progress.
At the end of every semester (January and June), teachers average the two quarters to calculate the students’ semester grade. This is the grade that goes on the student's transcript. Students receive a transcript with all their semester credits and grade point averages twice per year.
