RANK POINTS


Lincoln Public Schools has created a points system to determine class rank. All courses a student takes will be assigned class rank points (with the exception of courses graded S/U). Earned class rank points will be determined by the grade the student receives in a course and the number of credit hours the course is worth. Weighted courses receive more class rank points than non-weighted courses. Class rank will be determined by the total of a student’s class rank points. A cap of 35 hours per semester will be used to calculate rank points. If a student earns more than 35 hours in a semester, the lowest grades and hours will be dropped from the class rank calculation. The class rank point system rewards students for taking weighted courses as well as a full schedule of classes.
