Update: 2020-2021 Graduates: AB 104 Pass or No Pass
This summer, the California legislature passed AB 104 allowing students to have their 2020-2021 school year grades changed to a Pass or No Pass grade. Assembly Bill (AB) 104 requires school districts to implement policies that give students opportunities to counteract the impact of the pandemic on students' academic achievement and graduation credits. The new law, which went into effect on July 1, 2021, includes options that include requesting retention for eligible students, as noted below, changing grades to a Pass or No Pass for students enrolled in high school last year, and waiving local district graduation requirements that exceed the state credit and course minimums for students who were juniors or seniors in the 2020-21 school year.
