With the recognition that the COVID-19 pandemic is creating inequitable circumstances for students to pursue their coursework and demonstrate their learning, we are creating a modified version of the traditional grading scale. Our hope is that this change will help to support the well-being and success of learners, maintain the academic integrity of our programs, and stay true to our values. For the semester and quarter grades during the 2020-2021 school year, high schools and middle schools will use a modified version of the traditional grading scale. Students who earn a D+, D, or D- grade for the final semester grade (HS) will receive a G (credit) for high school courses. A high school student who earns an E grade will receive a NC (no credit).

A2 Virtual+ courses will be flexible with grading and withdrawing from courses, as well. A student must have a minimum of 60% in the course to earn a G grade. A student may request a 2-week extension on the semester so long as they are at a minimum of 45% in the course. The deadline to request an extension is January 15, 2021. It is important to note that there are NO extensions for Michigan Virtual courses. A student may withdraw from a first-semester course up to December 17, 2020. All grading and withdrawal decisions must be approved by A2V administration, Cindy Leaman (firstname.lastname@example.org). A parent/guardian/student should contact the A2V+ counselors – Mrs. Freda Didlake, HS counselor for A2V+ (email@example.com) or Mr. Allan Loeb for Middle School students.
