Weighted Grades in advanced and AP classes
We, the undersigned, feel the need for weighted grades in advanced and AP classes.
At the end of each trimester a 5% increase will be given to any advanced or AP class grade. As of right now, Souhegan High School doesn’t use a weighted grade system.
In addition, according to the University of Connecticut unweighted grades put students at a disadvantage for college admissions and/or scholarships. As well as that most schools now have some form of a weighted grade system.
This weighted grade system would pose no penalty for those not participating in advanced or AP classes.
