Spring 2020 - Grading Petition Process
RECENTLY REVISED - June 1st, 2020
Welcome to our information page dedicated to the Spring 2020 Grading Petition process. Below you will find a copy of the letter which was sent home to our students and families regarding this procedural change allowing students the opportunity to determine if they would prefer to receive a letter grade over the default Credit (CR)/No Credit (NCR) option for Second Semester final grades. Once students have fully read the directions below and are ready to make their selection, simply navigate to https://portal.emuhsd.org and begin the process.
Students will be able to make their grading selections during the dates of Monday, May 11th until Thursday, June 11th. After the grading petition period has ended, the student's preferences will be locked in order for report cards and transcripts to process. Students will be able to view the final class grade submitted from their teachers and decide at that point whether they want the default credit/no credit (F's only) or a letter grade option. The final grades from each classroom teacher are due by 3pm on June 5th. The Student Portal website will be up to date with the Final Grades by 5pm, June 5th. Students will have until June 11th, end of day (11:59pm), to make their final selections prior to report card processing. There will be no further extensions for the grading petition. Remember that the highest grade between the 6-week report card and the final grade will automatically be selected by the system, it will be highlighted in green within the Student Portal for each class.
