EI(LOCAL) - ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT

Certificate of Coursework Completion

The District shall not issue a certificate of coursework completion to a student who fails to meet all state and local requirements for graduation. [See EIF, FMH]

Partial Credit

When a student earns a passing grade in only one semester of a two-semester course and the combined (average) grade for the two semesters is at least a 70 on a scale of 100, the District shall award credit for the course. However, the student must have earned at least a 60 in order for the District to average the semester grades. The District shall also not average the semester grades when a student fails to earn credit due to excessive absences [see FEC].

If the combined grade for the two semesters is lower than 70, when the student's grade for a semester is lower than 60, or when the student has failed to earn credit due to excessive absences, the District shall award the student credit for the semester with the passing grade as long as the student has also met the attendance requirements. The student shall be required to retake only the semester in which he or she earned the failing grade or failed to earn credit.
