AB 104 Retention Procedure

Assembly Bill 104 (AB 104) was passed to help with some of the impact COVID-19 had during the 2020-2021 school year. This legislation temporarily modifies practices regarding student retention (your student would repeat their grade level from the 2020/21 school year) for eligible students.

If your student received Ds, Fs, No Credit/No Pass (or equivalent) grades for at least one-half of their coursework in the 2020-2021 academic year and you, as the parent/guardian, are requesting a consultation meeting to determine if your student is eligible for retention in the 2021-22 school year, then please complete the attached link as soon as possible (AB 104 excludes 2020-21 12th graders). This process is time-sensitive and a written request must be submitted on or before September 15, 2021. You may use the link below or submit a written request in person to your school site.

El Proyecto de Ley de la Asamblea 104 (AB 104) fue aprobada para ayudar con parte del impacto que tuvo COVID-19 durante el año escolar 2020-2021. Esta legislación temporalmente modifica las prácticas con respecto a la retención de estudiantes (su estudiante repetiría su nivel de grado del año escolar 2020/21) para los estudiantes elegibles.

Si durante el año académico 2020-2021, su estudiante recibió calificaciones Ds, Fs, No Credit/ No Pass (o equivalente) para al menos la mitad de su trabajo del curso, y usted, como padre / tutor, solicita una reunión de consulta para determinar si su estudiante es elegible para la retención en el año escolar 2021-22, complete el enlace adjunto lo antes posible (AB 104 excluye a los estudiantes del 12 ° grado de 2020-21). Este proceso es urgente y se debe enviar una solicitud por escrito antes del 15 de septiembre de 2021. Puede usar el enlace a continuación o enviar una solicitud por escrito en persona a la escuela.

Una vez que haya hecho su solicitud por escrito, la administración del distrito se comunicará con usted para programar una reunión de consulta para discutir sus inquietudes. El distrito tiene 10 días desde el momento de la reunión de consulta para determinar si la retención está justificada.


AB 104 Grade Change Requests

Assembly Bill (AB) 104 (2021)authorizes parents/guardians of students who were enrolled in a ***high school ***course during the 2020–21 school year (or students, if 18 years old or older) to request a grade change. Eligible individuals may apply to change the letter grade on the student transcript to Pass or No Pass. Changing a letter grade to Pass or No Pass may improve your overall GPA if the letter grade was significantly lower in value than your overall GPA.

Below is a list of colleges and universities in California that will accept Pass/No Pass grades on transcripts.
