      Not all courses offered at Madison City Schools meet the NCAA eligibility requirements.  It is the student’s responsibility to
      review the requirements, schedule classes accordingly, and make sure the NCAA Initial-Eligibility Clearinghouse has the
      documents to certify eligibility.  Courses taken through the Credit Recovery program are not accepted by the NCAA Eligibility
      Center. See Table of Contents for location of additional information.

      Grade Point Average (GPA) Scale
      Students electing to participate in rigorous academic courses such as Honors/PreAP, Advanced Placement are given
      additional weight. The weighted Grade Point Average (GPA) will be recorded on the student’s report card, high school official
      transcript, and included in the student’s overall GPA calculation.  Dual Enrollment is under review at this time.  The
      weight associated with dual enrollment classes and the college class (or combination of classes) needed to earn
      one Carnegie unit are under review.  Students who enroll in Dual Enrollment courses are responsible for verifying
      the high school credit and applicable GPA calculation that will be received for the course from Madison City
      Schools.
