Sonoma Valley High School (SVHS) adopted a Credit/No Credit policy for the Spring 2020 Semester as a result of school closures due to Covid-19. Sonoma Valley Unified School District moved to a Distance Learning policy for the Fall 2020 Semester. Students will be issued grades and credits based on class participation, homework and testing. A-F grades will be issued at the end of the Fall 2020 Semester. SVHS will resume in-class instruction, hybrid or regular, when it is safe to return to the classroom.
Students may cut and paste the above policy into the "additional comments" or under the additional comments section of the academic history portion of the UC application.
