    To encourage more students to participate in upper level courses and to pursue specific interests in a four-year sequence of courses for which there is no honors designation, the district will allow high school students to apply for a Pass/Fail grading option for any course above and beyond the graduation requirements. Courses taken as pass/fail will not count toward graduation requirements, including endorsements. Students may earn up to four credits (eight semesters) as pass/fail. These pass/fail courses will be excluded from the computation of grade point averages and class rank. Pass/fail applications must be submitted each semester.

    Students who elect this option for Spring 2020:

    • must submit the electronic application with appropriate signatures by Thursday, April 9 at 3:00 p.m.
    • must submit the elecronic application via the following link: Pass/Fail Application Spring 2020
    • must complete the electronic application for EACH course requesting to take as pass/fail
    • must complete the electronic application even if they submitted a paper copy prior to Spring Break
    • may not request a change back to a traditional numerical grade on the transcript once the pass/fail option is approved
    • will receive numerical grades on progress reports and report cards for eligibility purposes
    • will receive a P (Pass) or F (Fail) for the semester grade associated with that course(s) on the transcript
    • may NOT pass/fail a course required for graduation or a dual credit course

     

    Completion of the application does not guarantee pass/fail. Counselor approval is required after electronic application is submitted. Counselors will communicate with each student via email regarding the status of their pass/fail application. If denied, the reason will be given.
