Dear Amador County Public Schools Families,
On July 1, 2021, Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill (AB) 104, which provides significant opportunities for all students, but particularly for high school students. High school students may request that a letter grade from the 2020-2021 school year be changed to a Pass or No Pass grade; certain 2020-2021 high school juniors and seniors are allowed to graduate without meeting all local graduation requirements; and schools are required to provide additional supports towards graduation including a fifth year of high school, credit recovery, or some other opportunity to complete State graduation requirements. The bill also provides parents of “eligible pupils” a supplemental review process to consider retention at the 2020-2021 grade level, if desired.
