Pass Fail Option
Posted by Celia Herbst on 3/1/2021
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 graduation requirements. Courses taken as Pass/Fail will not count towards graduation requirements, including endorsements. Students may take up to four credits (eight semesters) as Pass/Fail. These Pass/Fail courses will be excluded in the computation of grade point averages and class rank. Pass/Fail applications must be submitted each semester.
Students who elect this option:
- Must complete the pass/fail link.
- Fall Pass/Fail Applications will open Friday 10/1/2021 & close 10/22/2021 at 3pm.
Students 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 dual credit course.
Teachers will continue to promote academic success by:
- encouraging students to attend tutorials if necessary;
- monitoring student progress by grading student work in a timely manner;
- communicating with parents regarding concerns about attendance, academics, or behavior;
- adhering to district policies regarding grading and reporting of student progress at 3 week, 6 week, and 9 week intervals.
Students, before completing the Pass/Fail application, please be mindful of how a Pass/Fail course will affect eligibility for UIL, school–approved activities, grade point average, and class rank.
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.
