Advanced Classes Expunge Opportunity
Students enrolled in high school credit-bearing classes (Algebra I, Algebra II, Earth Science, Spanish or French) are given a one-time opportunity to have that grade erased from their record (course would need to be repeated at the high school level) by submitting the "Request to Expunge Grade for High School Course Taken in Middle School" form to Mrs. James before June 30, 2022. These forms were sent home with students.
Students in these high school credit-bearing classes will have their grade automatically expunged if they receive a failing grade for the year.
