Students may be eligible to take a class on a pass/fail basis. If you have a 6.0 or better GPA, it may benefit you to take one or two courses on the pass/fail list as pass/fail – one course your junior year and one course your senior year. When you take a course as pass/fail you will receive six weeks grades designated with a numerical grade that count for honor roll and for UIL eligibility, however on the transcript the final grade for the course will post as a P or F, and no grade points will be calculated into your GPA. Courses taken as pass/fail must be in addition to the 26 credits required for the recommended graduation program (or beyond the 22 credits for the minimum program). This means these courses cannot count as one of the courses required for graduation. Also, in order to pass/fail this course, you must have completed all the prerequisite courses leading up to this course (ie. Theatre 1 and 2, Athletics 1 and 2, Orchestra 1 and 2 etc.)
To enroll in a pass/fail course, first talk to your teacher, then pick-up a form from your counselor’s office or the Director of Instruction office (located near the front receptionist). The form must be signed by your teacher and your parent and returned to your counselor’s office no later than September 9, 2016. Please see your counselor for additional clarification of the pass/fail process.
