The third trimester has moved quickly, and midterm grading will happen at the end of this week. Here are some highlights and a few things to remember:
There will be no grade of ‘F’ issued this trimester. Instead, students who do not earn a passing grade for a class will not be awarded credit and they will receive a grade of NP (No Pass). While neither mark earns credit in a class, the use of NP (No Pass) does not have an impact on a student’s GPA (unlike the F). Midterm grades will also use the NP instead of the ‘F’ when reporting progress.
Students/families will have up until the last day of the trimester (June 17th) to opt to receive a grade of Pass (P) in any course, rather than a letter grade, but may make the decision at any time. This decision must be communicated with the course instructor. Students and families should consider any impact this may have on post-secondary plans and are encouraged to reach out to the student’s counselor if there are questions.
If you have questions, please reach out to your student’s teacher(s), counselor, or grade-level administrator.
