Avon Lake High School would like to take this opportunity to make you aware that there is a recently released series on Netflix called “13 Reasons Why” that explores the topic of youth suicide, but does so in a way that is concerning. The show is trending nationally, and locally. It is a 13-hour series depicting strong and graphic themes of suicide, bullying, sexual assault, drug use, and other social issues. Counseling experts across the country are offering tips regarding viewing the show and addressing it with children. We would like to share a few with you.
The GPA function in PowerSchool has been turned off because it does not accurately portray a student's GPA. The only time a student’s GPA is established or changed is when a student earns credit. A student only earns credit twice a year (January and June). If left on, PowerSchool will constantly update GPA based on each individual assignment in each individual class on a daily basis. Once again, official GPA is only tallied twice a year after each semester has been completed, not on a day-to-day basis. We are hoping to get this issue resolved and are working with PowerSchool to do so.If a student wants to know their accurate GPA, or needs a copy of their current transcript, please feel free to contact the guidance department at any time.
