Dear WSCUHSD parents, guardians and students,
Assembly Bill 104 (new Education Code section §49066.5) grants the ability of parents/guardians and adult students to request that high school grades earned during the 20-21 school year be changed from a letter grade to Pass or No Pass. Per the Bill, there is no limit to the number of courses to which a grade change request may be made but under no circumstances, shall such changes negatively affect a student’s GPA.
If you are interested in pursuing a grade change from a letter grade to a Pass or No Pass for grades earned during the 20-21 school year, you must
- Complete the grade change form
Return the completed form to your child’s academic counselor (listed below) within fifteen (15) calendar days from the date of this written notice (by August 12, 2021).

Please note: Assembly Bill 104 explicitly prohibits school agencies from accepting grade change applications after the deadline.
Requested grade changes will be implemented by the school agency with written confirmation sent to the student and their parent/guardian(s) within fifteen (15) calendar days of receipt of the application.
It is important to note that some postsecondary institutions, including those in other states, may not accept a Pass or No Pass grade in lieu of a letter grade for admission purposes. Here is a List of postsecondary schools accepting Pass or No Pass grade in lieu of a letter grade for admission purposes.
Please reach out to your student’s counselor if you have questions.
