A high school student may choose to take a course on a pass/fail (P/F) basis, if the course is beyond state and district graduation requirements in that subject area and won't be used to satisfy the elective credit requirement for the graduation plan the student has declared.
The grade will not be included in the computation of the student’s grade point average.
- A student must request pass/fail status in a course no later than the last instructional day of the first six weeks of the semester.
- Pass/fail status must be submitted each semester.
- Once a student enrolls in a course on a pass/fail basis, the request to take the course on a pass/fail basis may not be rescinded.
- Written approval of the principal or designee, the teacher and the parent or guardian must be acquired prior to a student's placement in a course on a pass/fail basis.
- The pass/fail option is available for high school credit courses only.
- The grades in a course taken on a pass/fail basis will be recorded numerically for each six weeks grading period and for the final exam, but the final course grade will be recorded as a “P” or an “F.”
- Transfer grades of “P” or “F”: Credits transferred from other school districts with an assigned grade of “P” or “F” shall remain a “P” or “F.” The grade will not be included in the computation of the student’s grade point average and will count toward state and district graduation credit requirements, as determined by the sending district.
