NUSD School Board Approves Credit/No Credit Grades for Spring 2020

The Board recognizes that learning in the virtual (distance learning) environment due to the COVID-19 pandemic creates unique situations and challenges for students and teachers. This temporary grading policy is intended to address one of those challenges. For all grade spans, the District shall ensure that grades earned during the duration of District school site closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic will be recorded as credit/no credit, which is a system based on non-letter grades. Credit/no credit grades will not be averaged in a student’s Grade Point Average (GPA), and credit grades will not negatively impact graduation status. This temporary policy is based on current guidelines provided by the California Department of Education, FAQs on Grading and Graduation Requirements. This policy will be interpreted in a manner that is consistent with these current, and any future, California Department of Education guidelines. This temporary policy is also based on current assurances by all universities in the UC/CSU system, as well as many other colleges and universities, that they will accept credit/no credit in lieu of letter grades for all incoming students. Should these assurances materially change, so that a significant number of colleges and universities place new limits on or prohibit accepting credit/no credit in lieu of letter grades, the Board shall promptly revisit this temporary policy.
