Randolph Early College High School Newsletter

May 17, 2020


All 9th-11th graders have been mailed a form entitled "End of Year 2019-2020 Grading Options Form." We put this letter in the mail 5/12. This form explains the two grading options that students have regarding their high school courses. This form needs to be completed with the student's grading option for each course, along with a student and parent signature. We are also asking for students to put their college classes on this form. Students do have an grading option for their college courses in regards to how those college courses appear on their high school transcript. There is no choice in how the college courses appear on their college transcript. Students can choose to take their overall final numeric grade for college or a pass/withdraw option.

Please mail this form back to RECHS by May 20, 2020.

In an attempt to expedite this process, each student has been sent two Google forms concerning grading options. Students need complete this form by 5:00 on May 18th. By completing this form, we can make necessary changes within the PowerSchool grade book sooner. Then we will verify the students' request in the preliminary Google form against their official form that is mailed back to RECHS.

For those students wanting to know what their final average is, they should be able to see their final average Monday afternoon. They can then make a decision and mail the form in.

Please see the chart below to help you make decisions concerning the grade options!
