Grades for the 2019-2020 School Year

MNPS is issuing the following guidelines concerning grades for the second semester of the 2019-20 school year, which ends Thursday, May 21:

Students in grades Pre-K-8:

  • Second-semester grades in K-8 will be awarded as Pass/Fail (P/F).

  • Students in Pre-K-8 will be promoted to the next grade. Any retention decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.

  • 新皇冠体育盘口MNPS is finalizing plans for summer enrichment opportunities that can take place in a virtual setting to extend and promote academic growth prior to the 2020-2021 school year. Further details will be released soon. 

    Students in grades 9-11 (including middle school students in high school credit courses):

  • 新皇冠体育盘口Students may choose to recover or improve their 2020 second-semester grades online in Edgenuity this summer. To do so, contact your school counselors as soon as possible to notify them of your interest.

  • Final grades will be based on either the grades earned through Edgenuity or the existing third-quarter grades – whichever are higher. No grade will fall below the grade earned as of March 11, 2020, the last day schools were in session.

**Students in AP, IB, or AICE courses may also take a comparable general education course in Edgenuity to try to improve their grades in those courses. (Edgenuity courses do not include the additional points to the grade or weighted GPA points.)
