Sweetwater Union High School District creates no credit grade option for struggling students

SWEETWATER (KUSI) – Sweetwater Union High School District is adopting an alternative way of grading, in order to help students struggling because of distance learning.

Failing grades are much more prominent among our students as a result of the distance learning style amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The district has created a “no credit” grade option. Manny Rubio, a district official says the grading style will give students a chance to make up the class later on, and will not be factored into a student’s grade point average.

The grade will be given to students who faced challenges including lack of internet or computer access.

Manny Rubio, from the Sweetwater Union High School District, joined KUSI’s Paul Rudy on Good Morning San Diego to detail the new “no credit” grading system.
