Miscalculated GPA

Hi my name is Max Duale and I few days ago I went to check PowerSchool and saw my GPA was updated. When I seen it is was disappointed because it was not were I wanted it to be so I calculated both my grades from last year (18-19) and this year (19-20) on multiple sites and all of them had my GPA higher than what it’s supposed to be in PowerSchool. I don’t know who to contact for this can anyone help me?

Thank you

Re: Miscalculated GPA

Hi @maxduale ,

 

It sounds like you're a student, so the first thing I would do is ask your guidance counselor (or whoever fills that role at your school) how it is your school calculates GPA. PowerSchool GPA calculations can be incredibly complex, and in my experience (I am a member of a team that supports 70+ PowerSchool districts), the GPA calculation is rarely a simple addition/division calculation.
