Why are college courses such as SUNY French 4 and college DDE not weighted? A 1.03x weight like an honors course would motivate more students to take these difficult courses.

A.  Weighted Class Rank & GPA – All Honors courses (and courses taken in the 8th grade for high school credit) will be weighted by a multiplier of 1.03 when calculating class rank and GPA. All Advanced Placement (AP) and college level courses taken at Shenendehowa High School, but not for dual credit, will be weighted by a multiplier of 1.06 when calculating class rank and GPA. Weighted and unweighted GPA and rank will appear on the student’s transcript.
