Important Information to High School Students for the 2020-21 school year
Parents or guardians of students who were enrolled in a high school course during the 2020-21 school year are now eligible to request a grade change thanks to the passage of Assembly Bill 104.
Signed into law by Gov. Gavin Newsom July 1, AB 104 requires that school districts and charter schools post a grade change request form on their websites and notify families of the option to change a grade. Students have 15 days after that to submit a form, which their school must accept.
AB 104 also requires the California State University (CSU) and requests the University of California (UC) and private colleges to accept Pass or No Pass grades on a student’s transcript for high school courses taken during the 2020–21 school year.
The deadline to request a grade change with San Bernardino City Unified School District is August 31. The District may not change student grades after this date.
The application is available online. If the student is under 18 the form must be completed by a parent or guardian. Paper copies of the form are also available from all high school sites.
