********************************************Cumulative Summary**********************************************
(this is a sample of what you will find on your transcript)
This is a summary of your graduation requirements.
At the bottom of this summary box, you will see the words “District” and “State”. The District number represents the
student’s weighted cumulative GPA and the State number represents the student’s cumulative un-weighted GPA. A
cumulative GPA is your overall GPA that averages the final grades of every high school course that you have ever taken.
GPA’s are recalculated at the end of each semester and at the end of the school year. Additionally, the GPA is recalculated
when a student completes a virtual, E2020, or night school course.
