AISD Grading Policy 2021

Posted on

Just like any other school district, Austin Independence School District or AISD has a grading policy. This kind of thing is subject to change, meaning you will need to keep updating the information if you want to know the latest one. Fortunately, you are here and you will be informed about the AISD grading policy 2021.

According to the official website of Austin Independence School District, a uniform grading system for translating letter grades is used when there is a student who moves to Austin ISD from a school that gives letter grades. You will be able to find the chart that defines the alpha to numeric conversion that is used in AISD. It is stated that the grading scale of the sending district is used in lieu of the conversation chart of AISD.

The same system also applies to grades that are completed through the dual credit program. Each high school student who enrolled in a dual credit course in which only letter grades are assigned has to meet the instructor to get the numerical grade. On the other hand, there is no need for the college instructors to grant requests for the numerical grades. The student has to take the responsibility to verify in case the instructor wants to give a numerical grade before enrolling in the course.

If you want to get a numerical grade, as a student, you will have to reach out to the college instructor and request this kind of thing to be handed to the high school registrar. The numerical grade given by the instruction will be used as the replacement of the alpha chart conversion scale that has been established.

Letter Grade Numeric Conversion
A+ (Excellent) 99
A 96
A- 92
B+ (Good) 89
B 86
B- 82
C+ (Fair) 79
C 76
C- 72
D 70
F (Failing: below 60) 60

These followings will be about high school grade level classification. Basically, it is needed for a lot of things, including promotion, grade level advancement, and course credit, to be based on mastery of the curriculum. Course credits and the original year when the student entries into grade nine determine the grade level advancement for those who are in grades nine through 12.

Below are the grade classification requirements as shown on the official website:

  • 9th/Freshman: Completion of 8th grade and 0-4.5 credits
  • 10th/Sophomore: Completion of a year of high school and 5 credits
  • 11th/Junior: Completion of two years of high school and 10 credits
  • 12th/Senior: Completion of three years of high school and 15 credits

It is worth noting that there is no way for all the credits denied due to the excessive absences to be included when determining credit totals.

For those who want to graduate early, this one is for you. Apparently, the family has a right to ask for the student to graduate early as long as the student completes all the required courses and exit level assessment requirements for graduation. Those who are eager to graduate before the actual graduation have to see the school counselor or registrar to ask for an early graduation intent form. Before going to grade 12, it is needed for you to meet the minimum credit requirements for grade level classification, show the proof that you have completed the course, and submit the early graduation intent form that has been completed along with the required signatures.
