AB 104 - Grade Change Request to Pass or No Pass for High School Students

On July 1, Governor Newsom signed Assembly Bill (AB) 104 requiring school districts to implement policies that give students opportunities to counteract the negative impact of the pandemic on academic achievement and graduation credits.
