NEW EOC COURSE GRADE CALCULATOR


ATTENTION JAGUARS & PARENTS Attention Students and parents: starting this school year, there is a new formula that is being used to calculate the grade for State EOC courses. State EOC courses include: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Biology, and US History. Rather than students earning two separate semester grades, students will earn ONE final end of the year grade for these courses. Here is the breakdown:

1st Quarter = 15%
2nd Quarter = 15%
Midterm Exam = 10%
3rd Quarter = 15%
4th Quarter = 15%
EOC = 30% (There is no Final Exam for these EOC courses. The EOC will replace the final exam)

To make it easier for you to figure your final grade, Broward Schools created a grade calculator.


PSAT

ATTENTION 9TH, 10TH & 11TH GRADERS Every 10th grader will be taking the PSAT on Wednesday, October 15th 2014 (free of charge). 9th and 11th graders are encouraged to take this exam as well. The fee for 9th and 11th graders is $14. You can purchase a PSAT ticket starting Tuesday, September 16th during lunch in the Guidance office (cash only - we do have limited waivers for free and reduced lunch students).

The PSAT is a great practice tool to get ready for college. Math, reading and writing skills will be tested on the PSAT. For 11th graders, this is a great opportunity for practice since you will be taking the SAT this year. Additionally, 11th graders who score exceptionally high can qualify for the National Merit Scholarship.

Any student that is taking the PSAT will receive a PSAT Student Guide that will help in test preparation.
