Grade Classifications

Grade Classification

Topeka Public Schools’ grade advancement policy is based upon the current requirement that a student earn 24
credits in order to graduate. A credit is earned for each subject carried successfully for a school year or the
equivalent. The policy follows:

Credits for Graduation

*If students do not meet the required number of credits they will be labeled a "repeater". For example a student in their second year of high school with 5.0 credits will be labeled a 9R.
