Grading Policy Changes for HIGH SCHOOL

Prior to Spring Break, Dr. Brabrand also released updated end-of-year grading policies. That letter can be found in its entirety here

Key options for high school students are:

  • Use of No Mark (NM) instead of F grades for all courses. In these cases,students would not have an F factored into their GPA. A “NM” would appear on the transcript in lieu of an F.  However, they would still be required to retake the course if it was a graduation requirement. The course could be taken over the summer, if offered, or the following school year. In addition, students would not be permitted to move on to the next level of a course if the “NM” is not rectified. 
  • Final Exam flexibility that ensures an exam can only serve to improve a student’sgrade for the year. Collaborative teams will discuss if a final exam opportunity will  be made available to students.  If a final exam is offered, it can only serve to improve a student’s grade, not hinder it. 
  • Allowing students/families to choose a mark of “P” (pass) instead of passing letter grades (C’s or D’s for example) as their final mark for up to two courses. Families who wish to pursue this option must turn in thisform to the Student Services Department by May 10, 2021. Any families who want to learn more about the impact of a “P” for college acceptance, NCAA clearinghouse, or other matters can visit the Secondary Grading and Reporting website FAQ portion found here.

If you are interested in one or more of the options above, please reach out to your student’s counselor to further discuss.  


Sophomore Treat Day is Monday, April 19th. Treats will be handed out to Sophomores from 12:00-2:00 after they have completed their PSAT. Those Sophomores that are not taking the PSAT can come to the school to pick up their treat in the bus loop during that time.
