WEIGHTED GRADING - COLLEGE CREDIT
Downsville Central School utilizes a weighted grading policy to determine class rank. Under the policy, certain courses provide an additional 10% when calculating a student's overall grade point average (ie a final course average of 90 calculates into the overall grade point average as a 99). The weighted grade point average is used only to determine class rank. The simple (unweighted) grade point average appears on transcripts, report cards, etc. The following courses provide weighted grades:
Honors Environmental Science
Other College Courses*
All of the above courses except Spanish IV can be taken for college credit through SUNY Delhi at a reduced tuition of $50.85 per credit.
*In addition, high school seniors can take on-campus classes at SUNY Delhi at the reduced tuition rate. Any course taken for college credit will calculate into the students grade point average as a weighted course. Students wishing to enroll in on-campus courses must create a schedule with:
Ms. Glenda Roberts

Please note that the college calender begins in August and students must self-transport to SUNY Delhi for participation in on-campus college courses.
