What about students who are no longer participating at all?

If a student received an Incomplete in the Fall of 2019 (pre-COVID) and COVID has inhibited their ability to successfully make up the work over the past year, can they receive an EW or does an A - F letter grade need to be issued for their Fall 2019 grade?

Grades for 5-week courses were submitted yesterday. Unfortunately, I gave an F when an EW would have been more appropriate for the student. There were probably a few others as well. Is a grade change now required for each of them?

If a student drops now, are they being assigned an EW or a W?
Tina Giron

Sometimes a "D" is passing. If we can get a student to pass the class instead of an F or an EW, it may help them progress in college. A conversation needs to ensue to decide what is best for the student. Refer them to a Counselor.

I had a student respond to my Starfish report. They had no idea what Starfish was and were happy I connected them to the resource/support.

How do you extend an incomplete deadline???

Who do I talk to about this possibility?
Tina Giron
39:27
A D is passing for some classes if the class is not used for the student's major. Many GE classes not Math or English or sequence class used as a prerequisite.
