JUNE 4, 2020 INDEPENDENT LEARNING – CHANCELLOR’S LETTER TO FAMILIES:

GRADING POLICY CHANGES:

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We hope all of your families are staying safe and healthy during this time. Due to the current circumstances and the transition to remote learning our school, along with all other New York City Department of Education High Schools, has changed the grading policy. In the past, if your child failed a course they received a failing grade on their transcript, but under the new grading policy if your child fails they will receive an NX in place of a numerical grade. This NX means “Course in Progress”, and students will have time to complete the requirements for this course. However, if your student is a senior and receives an NX, they will not graduate until they complete the required work in order to have the NX converted to a passing grade. We know remote learning was a difficult transition for many students. Therefore, there is a new grading option available. After final grades have been issued, students and families have the option to convert any or all passing Spring Semester 2020 final grades to CR. This CR indicates the student passed the course and received the credit(s). However, no grade will be averaged into the student’s GPA.
If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact me at any time. Email: bhannafey@schools.nyc.gov. Remind: Text @bfiorp2020 to 81010

Greetings Parents, Guardians, & Caregivers:

In preparation for the Parent Teacher Conferences on March 19 and March 20, and in light of the medical situation known as the Corona Virus (COVID-19), the following steps are being taken:

A message in Blackboard Connect will encourage parents to contact teachers through the school e-mail in order to find out your child’s grades and progress in the class.

  • Get the facts. Check that your child is completing the work.  Find out for yourself what your child is doing in school. We strongly encourage parents to contact teachers through phone calls and e-mails for Parent Teacher Conferences. Steps to contact the school:
  • Keep an eye out for the census form that should be delivered to your door. You can take the census online.  Here is the link: https://my2020census.gov/login
  • We encourage parents to have a NYC Schools Account (NYCSA) so that you will be able to logon to see your child’s grades. You can also access your child’s test scores, attendance, transportation information, reading level, progress towards graduation, schedule, health, enrollment history, and more.
