Beginning in the 2004-2005 school year, LCHS converted to a 4.0 weighted scale rather than its previous 5–point
scale.
                                    GRADE-POINT AVERAGE (GPA)
Calculated on a 4-point scale, GPA refers to a mathematical average of grades earned in academic classes.
Lincolnite, (the school yearbook), Driver’s Education, Supervisory Ag Experience, and correspondence courses
are not included in calculating GPA. Alternative education opportunities including college courses taken for dual
(high school and college) credit and online classes intended to help students make up credit are included in a
student’s GPA.
                                           WEIGHTED CLASSES

                              EXPLANATION OF TRANSCRIPT CODES
AU      Indicates a student audited a course and did not receive credit.
P       Indicates credit awarded for a course taken on a pass/fail basis. This grading option is limited to
        recommended special education students. This grade is not included in computing class rank or
        grade point average.
WF      Indicates withdrawing while failing. This occurs as a result of a student’s withdrawing from a class after
        the 15 day deadline for dropping a class has passed or as a result of administrative action. No credit is
        earned, and the “F” is calculated in the grade point average.
EX      Exempt (usually indicates an athletic or marching band P.E. exemption)
M       Medical exemption
