Home / Learning Support / Health / Health Services & School Nursing FAQs on Grading and Graduation Requirements Coronavirus (COVID-19) Main Web Page Over the course of the last several weeks, local educational agencies have begun to develop and implement distance learning plans for students. While physical school sites are closed, learning is continuing through these alternative platforms. Many parents and students have had questions about how students will be graded for interrupted courses being completed through distance learning, whether courses can be graded as pass or credit instead of assigned letter grades, and the impact of those decisions on college admissions and high school graduation requirements. The following FAQ provides guidance for grades, grading, and graduation requirements. It is anticipated that this guidance will be updated as further information becomes available. 1. Can LEAs require graded work from distance learning students? Yes. The decision of whether or not to require graded work from students is a local one. There are a variety of considerations for local educational agencies (LEAs) to weigh as they review their grading policies during the transition to distance learning. LEAs should weigh their policies with the lens of equity and with the primary goal of first, doing no harm to students. Further, the distance learning grading plan that LEAs adopt in the short term, may differ from a plan that is created for the long term.
