All Juniors and Seniors are given the option to take up to a total of one elective class per semester OR one elective double period class for one semester as PASS/FAIL per year with stipulations that are designated on the attached form.
If a student takes a Pass/Fail, a credit only will be awarded for a pass in this course. There will be no grade calculated in the student’s grade point average (GPA) for this course. If a student takes a class Pass/Fail, and earns a D- or better, a “P”(credit) goes on the transcript. This “P” does not affect the student’s GPA in any way. If a student takes a class Pass/Fail and earns an F, a “NC”(no credit) goes on the transcript. This NC does not affect the student’s GPA in any way.
Any student wishing to take a course PASS/FAIL must turn in the form to the Guidance Office.
- SENIORS – This form must be turned in to the guidance office no later than Wednesday, May 17 before 3:15 p.m.
- JUNIORS – This form must be turned in to the guidance office no later than Thurs., May 25 before 3:15 p.m.
This must be done with the formal agreement signed by student, parent and a guidance counselor. The grade will not be changed to Pass/Fail until after the end of the grading period. This will enable the parents to see the actual grade earned. Forms are available by clicking on the link and are located in the guidance office. 2017 Pass Fail Option Agreement Form
