AB 104 Course Grade Change

Dear Oro Grande School District Families,

With the recent signing of Assembly Bill 104, we want to make you aware of a new option available to students and families. High school students in grades 11 or 12 during the 2020-21 school year may now request that a letter grade from the 2020-21 school year be changed to a Pass or No Pass grade. The number or type of courses eligible for this transcript adjustment is not limited by the school or district, and the grade change does not negatively impact a student’s grade point average. 

For the 2020–21 through 2023–24 school year, several in-state postsecondary institutions will accept, for admission purposes, a transcript with a Pass or No Pass grade instead of a letter grade. The list of those institutions can be found below. Some postsecondary institutions, including those in other states, may not accept a Pass or No Pass grade for admissions. If you are interested in requesting a grade change, please use the Course Grade Change Form link on this page, or click here, and submit it no later than Wednesday, Sept. 1.

If you have questions about any of this, please reach out to Dr. Kimberly MacKinney at 760-243-5884 ext. 150 or [email protected].


Dr. Kimberly MacKinney
