HOMEROOM OR ADVISORY MARKS

If your school posts attendance and comments but no letter grades nor credits to Homeroom or Advisory sections on report cards, do the following so that the mark posted will not impact the students' GPA calculations:

  • Homeroom or Advisory class sections must be set to “Included in grading” in the Synergy master schedule by the school administrator responsible for the school's mater schedule.
  • Homeroom or Advisory class sections must have credits set to “0.000” in the Synergy master schedule by the school administrator responsible for the school's mater schedule.
  • Teachers should submit “N” (No Mark) for Homeroom or Advisory when submitting grades online.

If the school does post letter grades and credits for Homeroom or Advisory, the class sections’ credits information in the master schedule should be set as appropriate for the credits necessary by the school administrator responsible for the school's mater schedule.
