Interventions in Response to Learning Loss due to COVID 19

On July 1, 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill (AB) 104 which includes several provisions to address student learning loss that occurred during the 2020–21 school year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 
 
Included in AB 104 is language that authorizes parents/guardians of students who were enrolled in a high school course during the 2020–21 school year (or students, if 18 years old or older) to request a grade change from a letter grade (A,B, C, or D) to a Pass grade. Eligible individuals may apply to Lake Elsinore Unified to change the letter grade on the student transcript to Pass or No Pass. There is no limit the number or type of courses eligible for the grade change, and the grade change will not negatively impact a student’s grade point average.
 
This bill also requires the California State University (CSU) and requests the University of California (UC) and private colleges to accept Pass or No Pass grades on a student’s transcript for those courses taken during the 2020–21 school year. Additionally, the bill required the CSU, and requested the UC and private colleges, to confirm and notify the California Department of Education (CDE) that they will accept Pass or No Pass grades on a student’s transcript.  The list of postsecondary educational institutions that will accept Pass or No Pass grades on the student’s transcript for admission purposes (you can find that list here)
 
Grade Changes were due no later than August 17th, 2021

Some postsecondary educational institutions, including those in other states, may not accept a Pass or No Pass grade instead of a letter grade for admission purposes.  Check with your intended college or review the list above for CSU/UC institutions that will accept these Pass/Fail grades.
