To arrive at a final grade, the teacher averages the numerical grade from each quarter. Passing a course means receiving a final grade of 60 or higher. The Westfield School Department operates a summer program wherein a student may earn credit for a subject that was failed during the school year. However, not all subjects are offered during the summer. Notably: Shop, Related, and Physical Education are not offered in the summer program.
