Frequently Asked Questions
Credit Only Vs. Letter Grades
If my student chooses the “credit only option”, how will his current GPA be affected?
If your student elects to receive “Credit Only” in their classes, they will receive credit towards meeting graduation requirements. The credit will not be factored into their GPA and their GPA will remain the same.
If my student elects the “credit only” option, will her overall GPA change?
If your student elects to receive “Credit Only” in their classes, they will receive credit towards meeting graduation requirements. The credit will not be factored into their GPA and their overall GPA will remain the same.
Is it possible to elect the “credit-only” option for some classes, and choose to receive letter grades for other classes? How will this be factored into my student’s GPA?
Yes. Students may elect to receive credit-only in some of their classes and attempt a letter grade for others. The classes that students elect for a letter grade will be factored into their GPA and count towards graduation requirements. If your student wishes to receive a letter grade for the completion of the course, he must email his teacher by April 24th.
If my student elects “Letter Grades” for her AP class, will the grading scale remain the same?
Yes. Your student’s grade will be factored in her GPA. The 5.0 scale will be taken into account only if your student takes the AP Exam.
Does my student need to complete their AP course even if they are not taking the AP exam?
Yes. Your student will need to meet all requirements deemed as essential by their instructor. AP class requirements may vary by class. Students should speak to their AP instructors individually.
Where can I obtain information about the AP exam?
For the most up to date AP Exam information, please refer to the CollegeBoard website. Their website is https://apcoronavirusupdates.collegeboard.org/students
Is there a plan for AP testing?
My student is a senior and has a C- in his Michigan Virtual class. Does he still need to complete work in that class for the remainder of the year?
Yes. Because the platform for online classes remained the same, students were instructed to continue to work through their online classes during the closure. Students must continue to meet class requirements for the remainder of the year in order to earn credit for the class. For questions, students should check with their online instructor and facilitator.
Will class ranking and Top Ten status be affected if I choose the “credit only” option?
No. Electing “credit only” will not have any effect on Top Ten or class rankings.
Is it possible to do some of our Senior events, like Graduation, virtually?
It’s definitely a possibility. We are currently looking at non-traditional ways to celebrate our seniors. Once plans have been finalized, we will communicate updates to families.
My student is a senior and is currently passing with a C-. Does he need to continue to complete assignments in their AP course even if they are not taking the AP exam?
Yes. In order to earn credit for the class, your student must continue to complete the essential learnings in their AP course. It is recommended that your student speak with his AP teacher for additional guidance.
How will I pick up my cap and gown and my senior t-shirt?
We will be in contact in the upcoming weeks about the pick up of remaining Senior items.
How will students go about returning school laptops?
Currently our building is closed for the remainder of the school year. Once we have guidance to reopen, we will communicate procedures for laptop returns.
My student has things in her locker. Will I be able to pick those items up?
Currently our building is closed for the remainder of the school year. Once we have guidance to reopen, we will communicate procedures for pick-up of personal belongings to our families. Please rest assured that your items are safe.
Are there any changes to the end of the school year?
Our building is currently closed for the remainder of the year. Please be sure to refer to the weekly emails and phone calls for updates.
How can parents support and help our students?
Dear Students and Parents,
I hope this letter finds you and your family safe and healthy. Taking the Governor’s guidance into account, we would now like to provide you with some information related to earning class credits. Although the points below will provide sufficient clarity for many, we realize that there will also be unique situations that will need to be addressed in a one-on-one format as well; please know that we will be here to guide and support you.
Semester 2 courses will be given pass, fail, or incomplete for grades.
To earn a passing credit, students must:
Step 1 Complete 1 weekly check-in per instructor
Step 2 Demonstrate mastery in assigned essential learning by the instructor
*For a letter grade that will factor into your GPA, please email each of your teachers that this is your desire by April 24th.
A student who does not complete the activities and/or demonstrate mastery of essential learning standards will receive an “incomplete” grade and will be given future support and opportunities to earn credit.
We are WAIVING the following requirements this year:
Early College/Dual Enrollment Courses
Information related to important events like Honors Night, Graduation and prom are yet to be determined. We are brainstorming ideas and will be soliciting ideas from you as well.
