Good afternoon, OUHSD Family!
I hope you are all safe, healthy and doing your best to thrive during these difficult times. Last night our Board of Education passed the attached grading resolution which is based on a Pass/Credit/Incomplete system of grading. Students may request a letter grade at the end of the semester, should they so choose. My sincere thanks to those of you who participated on the Grading Guiding Coalition- your time and commitment to our district is appreciated. The grading system is as follows:
Pass: 70% or higher in a class. This meets the UC definition of ‘Pass’.
Credit: 60-69% in a class. This meets the district’s requirements for graduation credit.
Incomplete: Less than 60% in a class. Students will have the Summer Session 2020 and Fall semester 2020 to complete a grade of ‘Incomplete’. Incompletes will be completed on our Edgenuity, online platform.
Letter Grade Requests: Students who wish to receive a letter grade will fill out a request form, which will be available on their school and district websites in the upcoming days. Once grades are published, students will have 5 days, between June 8 and June 13 to submit their Letter Grade Request form. These forms will not be accepted before June 8th. Students will only submit a Letter Grade Request, if they receive a Pass.
The Oxnard Union High School District understands the extreme burden and increased demands many of our students are experiencing during this pandemic. Many of our students are working full-time and/or watching their siblings late into the evening, making it difficult for them to complete their school work and succeed at the same academic level they experienced before the pandemic. It is our sincere plan to assist these students in every way possible, many of whom will be forced to take an ‘Incomplete’, to successfully complete their course work and go on to the powerful future we envision for every student. We will never stop investing in our students’ innate potential for greatness….never.
