If a student takes a class Pass/Fail, and earns a D- or better, a “P”(PASS) goes on the transcript. The “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.
- The student is required to complete all papers/projects/tests/quizzes for this course.
Any student wishing to take a course PASS/FAIL must turn in the form to the Guidance Office. This form must be turned in to the Guidance Office no later than Wednesday, January 8th before 3:30 pm.
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. 2019-2020 Pass/Fail Option Agreement Form
