says:

I am sorry that I don't know the answer to your question. I normally don't answer this type
of question but I am responding because your school has an unacceptable way of
determining final grades. Most learning is cumulative and developmental so final grades
should not be determined by a numerical formula that equally weights the first and second
quarters. Grades should be determined by the students most consistent level of
achievement with emphasis on more recent achievement.
