In September the Tempe Union High School District made the decision to show weighted grades on student transcripts. The decision, made after a 16-month effort by Desert Vista substitute teacher Susan Schramm and without the need for a vote from the governing board, came as no surprise and with little argument. District administrators decided both a weighted GPA on a 5.0 scale, which adds extra weight for honors classes, and a traditional unweighted GPA on a 4.0 scale will appear on transcripts. Weighted GPA will not appear on report cards and also will not change requirements for students to be invited into the National Honor Society.
