HERE'S HOW TO LOOK UP YOUR CURRENT GPA

Here’s how you can see your current GPA at any time. (Keep in mind that it can change at the end of each semester, once all grades are in.)

1.Go to school website www.aurorar8.org

2.Click on sites at the top of the screen and pull down High School

3. Click on “menu”, then student/parent links

4.Click on “Tyler SIS”

5.Click on the “student” tab

6.Your username is your lunch pin

7.If you don’t know your password, click on the link and follow instructions

8.Once you are on the site go to “Academic History” and your GPA “unweighted and weighted” will appear near the top toward the right

9.To convert the 11 point scale to the 4 point scale, just divide by 11 and multiply times 4.

10.Any question ask your counselor

HERE'S HOW TO DO AN ONLINE (SELF) REFERRAL (WHICH BASICALLY MEANS YOU WANT TO "SIGN UP" TO SEE ONE OF THE COUNSELORS):
