Grading Policy Changes for HIGH SCHOOL – Adjusted Deadline!!

New Deadlines:

Seniors - Monday, May 17

Underclassman - Friday, June 4

We are writing to share an update regarding the secondary grading policy changes that have been adopted to help our students achieve a strong finish to the school year.

FCPS is adjusting the grading policy for the 2020-21 school year to ensure students are not penalized by the challenges brought on by pandemic learning. 

Key policy changes for high school students are listed below:

  • Final Exam flexibility that ensures an exam can only serve to improve a student’s grade for the year. Teachers will apply this in their grading practices for each class.
  • Use of No Mark, “NM”, instead of “F” grades for all courses. This will be automatically applied for any course in which a student receives an “F.”
  • Allowing high school students to select a mark of “P” for pass for up to two courses for which a passing grade is earned for the final mark. As referenced above, for the 2020-21 school year, final marks of “F” will automatically receive a No Mark, “NM.” 
    • Action Needed: Should you wish to designate one or more courses as Pass - No Mark status, the linked form must be submitted to your school counselor by the deadlines listed above.  Please note that we have extended the previous deadline to allow more time for students and families to gain more information about their fourth quarter progress before making the decision to request a “P”. 
    • The course title is required on the form, but the course number may be left blank if you do not have it available.

Students and families are encouraged to carefully consider the option for Pass. Additional information including translated forms, considerations,  and frequently asked questions are available at the following link:

Be Prepared for AP Digital Exams!

AP Digital Exams (taken at-home) are scheduled to begin on Tuesday, May 18 - see full AP exam schedule here.

All AP students taking digital exams have been provided information by their AP teachers about necessary steps to ensure they are ready for their digital exams. Students may use their FCPS-provided laptop for testing OR their personal computer (tablets and phones are not suitable devices for testing).

Specifically, there are four steps students need to take – 3 steps before the exam day, and one on the date of their digital exam. See the graphic below and the link that follows for additional information on these 4 required steps for digital exams (regardless of testing device).


Four Steps to Take Digital Exams

In the offhand chance that a problem occurs during digital testing, students will have the opportunity to request a makeup digital exam. Click here for more information about requirements and procedures should this information be necessary.

For specific questions about your student’s AP Exam(s), please first check with your student and check on Schoology for all information that has already been shared by the specific AP teacher(s). If questions remain, please contact the specific AP teacher.

For general AP testing questions not answered by the above information and/or all information provided by AP teachers, please contact AP Testing Coordinator Katie Robinson or AP Academic Coordinator Ryan Jackson

For all other AP Information, visit the College Board AP website

Langley AP Exam Attendance Policy

2021 AP Exams begin on Tuesday, May 4 and conclude on Friday, May 28. Some exams will be administered as paper, in-person exams whereas others will be taken digitally at home. The Langley AP Exam Attendance Policy for both formats is as follows for students scheduled to take an AP Exam.


While Monday has no scheduled classes, all students taking Monday AP Exams will be excused from 3rd period since that is the only period students are accounted for per county/state attendance policies.

Students are expected to attend all classes/class periods and are accountable for any/all assignments and assessments in those classes for which they are not excused by the above policy.

If you have questions about a specific AP Exam, please contact your student’s AP teacher.

If you have questions about the AP Exam attendance policy, please contact Assistant Principal Jim Robertson

Langley High School Credit Recovery Program - Summer 2021

This summer, Langley High School will be partnering with McLean High School who will be hosting credit recovery for our students who receive a final grade of No Mark (NM). NM is being used this year in lieu of an F to limit the impact of virtual learning on a student’s grade point average. However, students will still need to recover the course credit. Langley, McLean and Oakton High Schools will be combining credit recovery programs. This is to ensure we are able to offer all courses needed by students. McLean High School will host the program.

Credit Recovery offers opportunities for students to recover course credit(s), prepare to retake an SOL test, prepare to take a WorkKeys test, or develop academic language and skills necessary for success in future credit-bearing English and mathematics classes. Here is a table of important dates for each session:


Each school day starts at 8:00 am and ends at 1:00 pm. Grab and go breakfasts and lunches will be available and free for all students who attend credit recovery.

Additionally, we will be offering ESOL Numeracy and Literacy courses for our English Language Learners who may need additional support after the past school year. Langley High School administrators and counselors will be reaching out to families soon with more information.

If you have any questions regarding credit recovery, please reach out to your student’s counselor. Counselor contact information is below.


Here is the contact information for Langley’s administration for credit recovery.
