into the GPA but credit is given for each course taken with a
record of “pass”. Students participating in study abroad program

on that basis.

public high schools in the U.S., alternative schools, home-based
private educational programs or foreign schools will have their
grades recorded and GPAs calculated in accordance with the
district’s guidelines for admission of transfer students.
