As of 4 p.m. today, the general contractor (Hess) has failed to meet requirements for temporary occupancy of part or all of the new Stafford High School and the planned move of the administrative offices have been delayed until early next week. Stafford County's Code Compliance Office has extended every effort in support of this project and is committed to continue to do so until the contractor meets the requirements for temporary occupancy.
 
In order to provide a positive educational experience for our students in a finished building, we have determined to delay the start of school for Stafford High School students until Monday, September 14, 2015. Instructional plans are being explored in the event that students must make up the time missed during this first week.  These options may include making up the time during the second semester, requesting a waiver from the Commonwealth and/or providing on-line opportunities for classroom instruction.
 
Teachers and staff will have access to the building as soon as temporary occupancy is achieved.  Teachers will work from home during teacher work week (August 31-September 4) until access to the building is possible.  If the division staff are able to accelerate the moves to earlier dates, it will be done and information on any changes will be sent out to the community using a variety of media.
 
The Freshman Orientation and Open House scheduled for Thursday, September 3, will now be held on Thursday, September 10, 2015.  The freshman orientation will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The Open House will be held on September 10 with Seniors and Juniors arriving from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and with Sophomores and Freshmen arriving from 6 to 7:30 p.m.  Freshmen who attend the orientation earlier in the day are not expected to attend the open house that evening as they will have received the information needed.  Both of these events on September 10 will be dependent upon access to the spaces within the school.
 
Further details regarding instruction during the first week of school will be shared next week.

ImageDEFINITION OF THE GRADING SCALE (see chart above):
  • Each letter grade will consist of a 10-point range.
  • Each letter grade will include a low, middle, and high grade.
  • A plus (+) and a minus (-) will be assigned to the high and low end of each letter grade range.

WEIGHTING OF COLLEGE-LEVEL COURSES:

  • College-level courses (AP, IB, and DE) will continue to carry an additional 1.0 quality point. Only those dual-enrollment academic core courses that are equivalent to two semesters of college credit will be awarded 1.0 quality points.
GRADE POINT AVERAGE REQUIREMENTS FOR STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS AND RECOGNITION:
  • The minimum eligibility requirement for NHS is 3.8.
  • The honor graduates GPA is 3.8, and the distinguished honors graduate GPA is 4.0.
  • The GPA eligibility for Summa Cum Laude division-level recognition is 4.25.
TRANSCRIBING GRADES FOR TRANSFER STUDENTS:

Stafford County Public Schools recognizes that different school districts and different states utilize different grading scales. As students transfer to Stafford County Public Schools, official transcripts are requested from the sending school. Grades are transcribed for transfer students based on the letter grade earned at the previous school. This letter grade for the transfer student is used to calculate the grade point average based on the Stafford County Public Schools’ quality point scale that is applicable.  It should be noted, that Stafford County Public Schools does not weight all courses. Transfer students will receive weighted credit for only those Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment or IB courses previously taken for which an equivalent weighted course is offered in our schools.
