  • High School Course: Final Grade Selection Form

    Following guidelines issued by the State Board of Education, all middle school students enrolled in high school courses  will have the choice between Pass, Withdraw, or the highest numerical grade for each high school course completed during the spring semester, including any yearlong courses. 

     A digital survey form requiring electronic signatures of the student and the parent or guardian will be used to collect grade preferences for these courses.  You may access the form here. Please complete the form by Friday, June 12.  Following guidelines from the state, a default final grade of Pass or Withdraw will be used if we do not receive your grade selections.

     Remember that you will need to make the best choice.   Contact your teacher or school principal  if you would like to discuss classes, grades or courses for next school year.  Our final report card for this school year will be mailed to students on Friday, June 19.
