FreshmanDS hates Spanish. I think a lot of it is teacher related but he knows he has to do the 3rd year for sure. He isn't resisting that but I am worried about his future grade.
The pass/fail policy at his school is
Sign up for Pass/Fail before the end of 1st quarter.
Grade must be a 70% for a pass. (shows up regular percentage in on-line grade book)
At any time in the year, he can go back to a letter grade if requested. He would if he got a B+ or better. maybe a B...
Can't be in a core class and only once a year.
It seems like a win-win situation. He knows he will be done and can focus on his other classes.
This is the "huh?" part?
NCAA clearinghouse counts all "passes" as a "D" grade. Interesting but won't need NCAA
Some college may not accept this.
So it would be a very big deal if he didn't get credit for Spanish III. How do you read this and what does your high school do? Is this a bad idea all together?
