This message is to inform you of District 207’s ‘Pass/No Grade’ option for students.
The Pass/No Grade procedure was developed to give students new opportunities for learning without the pressure of grades. Passing grades received under the Pass/No Grade system are designated on grade reports and official transcripts as a “P”. Failing grades received under the Pass/No Grade system are designated on grade reports and official transcripts as an “NG”. A “P” or “NG” grade will not be computed in a student’s total grade point average.
Students may take any one-quarter, one-half credit or one credit course during the regular school year Pass/No Grade according to the following guidelines:
• Students may petition to take courses Pass/NG grade only if they are registered for more than four full
credit courses. If an approved class drop, results in a student taking fewer than four classes for a letter grade,
the Pass/No Grade course will revert to a letter grade.
• Eligible courses include elective courses, literacy classes and physical education.
• Courses required for graduation may not be taken Pass/No Grade except for courses taken to complete
the two-year graduation requirement in Applied Arts and Technology, Fine Arts, or World Language.
• Accelerated, Advanced Placement and/or Dual Credit classes may not be taken Pass/ No Grade.
• Students must meet all prerequisites for admission to any class they wish to take Pass / No Grade.
If you submit a Pass/NG form for a year-long class, during the first semester, you will be granted Pass/NG status for the second semester. You are also permitted to submit a Pass/NG request for a year long course in the spring. In this case, the P or NG grade will apply to both semester 1 and semester 2. Once approved, a Pass/NG can not be rescinded.
If you wish to take a course on a Pass/NG basis for the first semester of the 2023-24 school year you must
complete and submit the signed Pass/NG form to your counselor by 3:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec 8, 2023.
Please read the form carefully.
Please talk with your counselor if you have any questions regarding Pass/NG options.
