MCPS Offers Adjustments for Second Semester to Improve Virtual Learning Experience and Promote Student Well-Being
MCPS recently shared that two new options are being offered to middle school and high school students for second semester. The news update can be seen in full here.
Per the update:
In middle and high schools, schedule adjustments for second semester include opportunities to:
- Request an abbreviated schedule to lighten course load and take a course over the summer or in future semesters instead.
- Take up to two courses Credit/No Credit (also known as Pass/Fail) instead of a letter grade, in courses not specifically required for graduation.
In order to take advantage of these schedule options, students/parents will need to closely consult with their school counselor or Student Well-Being Team to make any schedule adjustments for the second semester and to ensure progress towards meeting graduation requirements and college and career plans.
To request an abbreviated schedule, students will need to consult with their counselor, fill out a request form, and have their request approved by their principal.
To request that a class be taken for “credit/no credit” in lieu of a letter grade, students will need to consult with their counselor, fill out a request form (seen here for middle school, seen here for high school), and have their request approved by their principal.
These adjustments are being offered in addition to the updates that MCPS made during second quarter, which can be seen here.
