Graduation requirements & Grade forgiveness


Grade Forgiveness Credit recovery & accrual

  • W01 – (Credit Deficient) = Credit Accrual/Credit Recovery

  • W08 – (GPA Deficient) = Grade Forgiveness/Credit Accrual/Credit Recovery

  • W8A – (Test Deficient)= ACT/SAT/FCAT/EOC

  • W22- (Whereabouts Unknown) = Exit Interview / Secondary and Adult Education Non-Completer Report


EXIT INTERVIEW PBSD # 1055

The Student Exit Interview should be completed by the school counselor or designee with the student's participation. A printed copy should be put in the student's Cumulative Record Folder (CRF). A Student Exit Follow-up Survey (PBSD 2237) should be completed three months after the initial interview to encourage dropout retrieval efforts.

grade forgiveness student progression plan

  • Page H/64 in Student Progression Plan

  • Students may repeat a course taken in grades 9-12 for forgiveness if a grade of F or D is earned in a course. High school courses taken in middle school may be forgiven if a grade of C, D or F is earned subsequently.

  • A course is forgiven only if a student receives a grade of C or higher on a subsequent attempt.


grade forgiveness student progression plan

  • A required course may be forgiven by the same or a comparable course taken subsequently. A lower level of the same course is considered comparable because the benchmarks and/or course objectives are similar.

  • A non-specific course requirement may be forgiven by another course within the same subject area. For example, physics may be forgiven by ecology.


grade forgiveness student progression plan

  • Any course that is not being used to fulfill a subject area requirement is considered an elective for forgiveness purposes. An elective course may be forgiven by another course taken subsequently. When using a different course to forgive an elective, the same semester in which the previous D or F was earned, does not have to apply.


grade forgiveness student progression plan

  • Students earning a grade of D on the repeat effort earn credit for that course; however, the initial failing grade is not forgiven. Students may again choose to repeat the same course, and upon earning a grade of C or higher, all earlier grades will be forgiven.

  • In all cases where courses are forgiven under the provisions above, the initial F or D grade(s) will remain as part of the academic history. Students should be advised that many universities calculate GPAs based on all courses attempted.


grade forgiveness procedure

  • PBSD Form 2334 - This form is completed by the counselor, approved by the principal/designee and processed by the data processors. Original is filed in the students Cumulative Record Folder.


reports to be used for possible grade forgiveness

  • Missing Grade Report (JD MTS4625) Sample in folder

    • Shows any missing grades on A12 of any fiscal year

  • Duplicate Course Report (JJ MTS4912 )

    • Shows all courses that have been taken more than one time

  • Have your data processor contact his or her Field Tech with any questions.


do’s and don’ts of grade forgiveness for subject area requirements


do’s and don’ts of grade forgiveness for a non-subject area elective


Can these be forgiven?

  • A student in your high school is re-taking Algebra. He earned a “C” in middle school and a “B” the second time. Can you forgive the “C” with a “B”?


YES

  • When a middle school student earns high school credit, they may forgive a “C”, “D” or “F”.


Can this be forgiven?

  • A student earns a “D” in first semester English Honors 9. He subsequently earns a “B” in second semester English Regular 9. Can this be forgiven?


no

  • During their senior credit check a student points out to his counselor that he earned a “D” in Team Sports that he took in 11th grade and an “A” in Weight Training that he took in 9th grade. He wants to forgive the Team Sports grade. Can this be forgiven?


no

  • An elective course must be forgiven by another elective course but it must have been taken subsequently NOT previously.


Next Steps

  • Run (historical) missing grade report for seniors

  • Run duplicate course report and forgive all applicable grades

  • Run EDW report Graduation Status to locate GPA, credit and test deficient to make a plan for each senior/junior (for example grade forgiveness or credit recovery options)
