2017-2018 Grading Scale and GPA Calculation Changes
For the past two years, an instructional leadership team in East Penn has been working to examine our district-wide assessment practices and evaluate them in terms of their efficacy and equity. Through that process, the secondary grading scale and high school grade point average calculations emerged as an area in need of revision. For these reasons, we have decided to modify the grading scale and calculation of student GPA to be more consistent with other schools both regionally and nationally. This change will go into effect beginning with the 2017-18 school year. For more information regarding these changes please click here.
Changes in the Counseling Office
As you may be aware, some exciting changes are happening at Emmaus High School for the 2017- 18 school year. In addition to the adjusted bell schedule and Flex Block Wednesdays, a Ninth Grade Academy has been created to assist students with the transition to high school. As a result of the new Ninth Grade Academy, the Emmaus High School Counseling Office has been restructured and counselors have been reassigned to students. Please find the letter sent home to students in grades 10-12 by clicking here.
New counselor assignments can be found on our ‘Contacting a Counselor‘ page.
Naviance Family Connection
The counseling office is pleased to continue to offer Family Connection through Naviance to our students and their families. Family Connection is the preferred postsecondary planning resource for EHS counselors. We encourage all families to utilize the resources found in Family Connection. Students have received an introduction on how to use and navigate Family Connection. Below is a link to access Emmaus High School’s Naviance Family Connection site. Students need to log in using their ID number as their email and their EPSD password as the password. Parents must register using a registration code, which can be obtained from your child’s counselor. Once registered, parents are able to input an email address and create a password for future use.
