    Let Me Tell You More About NGs

    NGs (No Grade) are awarded on the report card when a student receives a passing grade in a course but has not been in attendance 90% of the class time. The State and the District allow students to use the credit appeal process to regain that credit.

    The credit appeal process is comprised of two prongs. The standard process is for the student to be assigned hours to make up for the lost instructional time. With the adjustment to include excused absences related to illnesses, we will refer any extended absences to an Attendance Committee to review. The Attendance Committee may use completed makeup work or attendance at tutorials to reduce any hours that would otherwise be assigned.

    Moving forward, all NGs will be recovered through the credit appeal process within six weeks of the semester report card date. Any NGs not recovered within that time frame will no longer be eligible for recovery through credit appeal. For students with several NGs, this may present a challenge to graduating with their classmates.

     

    So What About NGs From Prior Years?

    All NGs from prior years must be cleared by January 1, 2023. Our Academic Deans and Assistant Principals are making many dates available to help students clear NGs from prior years. Use the information below to help your student create a plan.

    Clear Bag Policy

    Starting August 22, 2022, all students will be required to use a clear back on campus. Some of you may be applauding the move, while I imagine there are others who find this to be an overreach.  I would like to provide you with the reasoning.
