    Grades earned in courses identified as honors, Advanced Placement, or joint-enrolled with a local college receive a the following weighting:
    Honors = 1.05
    Advanced Placement = 1.10
    Joint Enrollment = 1.10
     
    This weighting is not applied to individual grades on the transcript but is applied when the cumulative average is calculated.
