Graduation Requirements in simple English please?
Original post made by Confused Parent on Dec 16, 2011
We have been trying to follow and educate ourselves about the system our children will be using here in Palo Alto. We understand plain English, and do not understand all the jargon we are finding and when we ask we are given more jargon we don't understand.
Please can someone explain to us in simple English what A - G means? Is this the same as the letter grades, A meaning passing with honors and G meaning fail? In which case which are passing grades and which are honors grades and what is the difference between F and G failing grades?
Can someone also explain why a final exam occurs twice every year? Is there a special final exam at the end of 12th grade to examine a student's retention of knowledge for the previous 4 years of high school and what is this final exam called?
