MISSION: To ensure that parents are informed of student progress by using a frequent
and standardized reporting procedure.
A report card shall be issued to each student each semester of the school year and shall
indicate the progress in each course. Students in grades K-5 will have grades displayed
by letter. Students in grades 6-12 will have grades displayed numerically. The
grading scale for the DeKalb County School System will be as follows:
90 - 100
In the event that a student fails to complete a subject satisfactorily, the student shall be
eligible to enroll in an appropriate course which may be available in a summer semester.
A reexamination may be authorized at the discretion of the teacher and/or appropriate
Placement and progress in kindergarten through grade twelve shall depend on the satisfactory
completion of the subjects required for each grade.

Grade point averages in the DeKalb County School System will be computed on a 4.0 scale,
except for International Baccalaureate and College Board Advanced Placement courses so
designated by the Division of Instruction in the curriculum guides. These International
Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement courses will be computed on a 5.0 scale.
