Dear Parents and Guardians,
For the 4th Marking Period (MP4), students will earn marks of Pass (P) or Incomplete (I) instead of letter grades for each of their credit-bearing courses. Students, with the support of their parents/guardians, may choose to have the final Semester 2 grade shown as either a letter (ex. A, B, C, D, E) or as Pass/Incomplete (P/I). The Grading Options Tool was developed to allow students to submit their preferences and to help them choose the best possible option for each course. Grade choice is only available for Semester 2 courses, not full-year courses or non-credit bearing courses.
