This recommendation is based on:
- the guidance of pending legislation on the topic of “Pupil instruction: retention, grade changes, and exemptions” (AB 104)
- the previously board-approved qualifications for requesting an optional passing “P” grade in place of the earned letter grade (A-D) from the spring of 2020
- the data surrounding current student course failures coupled with lower GPAs
The MBUSD Board of Trustees is expected to vote on this proposal at its May 5 meeting. To learn more and view the proposal, link here.
