Grading Policy

On or about the first of each month all grades will be added to the previous month’s average to determine whether the student is meeting satisfactory standards of the school. If a student falls below 76% in one area, academic or practical, but still averages 76%, they will be counseled and allowed 30 days to raise that individual area to a 76%. If after 30 days the average in all areas is not at 76% they will be placed on a 90 day probation. One probation period is allowed before the student is considered to not be making SATISFACTORY PROGRESS and dropped from their program.

The following factors will be measured to determine academic and practical progress: Theory (test grades, class participation, homework) and all practical/clinical work.

All work, theory and practical, will be graded according to the following scale:

100% – 95% = A
94% – 90% = B
85% – 89% = C
84% – 76% = SATISFACTORY
75% = FAILING
