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]
When a student earns a passing grade in only one semester of a two-semester course and the combined grade for the two semesters is lower than 70, the District shall award the student credit for the semester with the passing grade. The student shall be required to retake only the semester in which he or she earned the failing grade.
When a student's combined average for the two semesters of a course is 70 or higher, the student shall be awarded one full credit even if the grade for one semester is below 70.
Withdrawal or Late Enrollment
Any student, including a migrant or homeless student, who enrolls after the first day of instruction or who withdraws early shall be provided opportunities to achieve mastery of the essential knowledge and skills to meet course requirements. Teachers and counselors shall consider the student's particular circumstances in determining appropriate opportunities, which may include, but are not limited to:
Testing to verify mastery of the essential knowledge and skills.
Early final examinations.
