Grading Policy When Dropping a Class

Occasionally students withdraw from a course before the end of the grading period and still remain enrolled at Southeast High School. When this occurs, an alternative grading policy will be used. The LPS policy for assigning grades of W (Withdrew) or F (Failure) is based on when the student withdraws from class.

Request for Change in Course Evaluation (Pass/Fail)

Implications for Academic Honors Recognition and NCAA Core-Curriculum Requirements for Student Athletes

1. Students and parents should be aware that approval of a “Request for Change in Course Evaluation” might have implications for a student’s eligibility for Honor Roll, National Honor Society and academic letters.

2. Be sure that you know and understand these implications before submitting your request.

3. Student-athletes who aspire to an athletic scholarship and eligibility to practice and participate in athletics during the first year of attendance at an NCAA Division I or II college or university are advised that courses for which the pass/fail grading option is elected can be used to satisfy the NCAA core-curriculum requirements. The NCAA will compute a “Satisfactory” grade as the lowest passing grade (D) to determine the Core Course GPA.

4. Talk to your counselor or an Associate Principal if you have questions about these topics.
