We recognize that COVID-19 and the transition to blended and remote learning may impact how your student demonstrates their learning. Because of this, you can choose to replace any passing final grade on your student’s transcript for the 2020-21 school year with a grade of credit or ‘P’. This option is meant to ensure that your student’s transcript best reflects their achievements.
Your student’s final grades appear on their transcript, which is the official record of the courses they have completed. Final grades in some courses are used to calculate a cumulative average, which is often used for scholarship and program eligibility and class ranking. If you choose to change any of your student’s passing grades to ‘P’, that grade will not affect their cumulative average, but it will still count toward promotion.
Final grades will be available in your MyStudent Account on June 25, 2021.To let us know which passing course grades from SY 2020-2021 you would like to be changed to grades of ‘P’, email Mr. Romano at firstname.lastname@example.org by July 2, 2021 with one of the options below. If you do not respond by this deadline, the original passing final grade will be permanently saved on your student’s transcript.
- I want to change all passing final grades to passing grades of ‘P’. Respond to this email with, “change all passing grades from [2020/Term1] to P.” Doing so means that none of my student’s passing final grades will be included in their cumulative average.
- I want to change the following passing final grades to passing grades of ‘P’. Respond to this email with, “change the following passing grades from [2020/Term1] to P” and list all of the courses for which you are requesting this change.
- I do not want to change any passing final grades to passing grades of ‘P’. Respond to this email with, “do not change any grades.” I understand that all of my student’s passing final grades will be included in their cumulative average.
- I am not sure. Respond to this email with, “I would like to meet with a school staff member to discuss this decision.”
Once we receive your decision, we will make the change(s) within 10 business days for students promoted to High School in this term and within 30 business days for all other students. We are available to discuss these options with you to help you make the best decision for your student.
Your School. Your Child. Your Voice.
Every year, all parents, teachers, students in grades 6-12 and select school support staff take the NYC School Survey. The survey helps school leaders understand what key members of their school community think about the learning environment at their school. The information captured by the survey is designed to support a dialogue among all members of the school community about how to make the school a better place to learn.
Families should enter “f” followed by their child’s nine-digit Student Identification (OSIS) Number to access the survey. Note that “f” must be lowercase. Families can find their child’s Student Identification Number on their report card, student ID card, or New York City Schools Account (NYCSA).
