How were final grades calculated for the 2019-2020 school year?

In April 2020, the Board of Education unanimously approved recommendations for temporary grading modifications to avoid penalizing students during emergency situations, such as the school closure caused by the coronavirus. The additional decision to eliminate final exams for the 2019-2020 school year also impacts the calculation of the final grade. As such, the grade ranges used to calculate final grades have been modified to mitigate the effect of the loss of points that students could have earned through strong performance on the final exam.
