Course Changes     

It is Sobrato’s policy that student class changes are made for these reasons only:
1.
    The student is misplaced based upon departmental criteria for the class in which he/she is enrolled.
2.    The student is missing a class in his/her schedule.
3.    The student requires more advanced course work because of course results.
4.    The student has been accepted into an activity such as athletics, band, yearbook, journalism, etc.
5.    A student needs a class to complete the requirements for graduation.

Failed Classes


Failed classes (grade of “F”) earn no units.  Required classes for high school graduation that are failed must be repeated until they are passed. An equivalent course may satisfy this requirement.

 

W/F – Withdrawal Fail


After the second week of a semester, any student who feels he/she cannot remain in a class may (with parent permission) be removed from that class and be given a W/F (Withdrawal/Fail).  The “F” grade will become a permanent grade on the transcript and will affect eligibility for the entire semester in which it was earned.

Courses that are repeated earn units only once, unless otherwise noted in the course description.  Example:  A student receives a “D” in Algebra 1 and then repeats the course the next year earning a “B”.  The “D” grade will remain on the permanent record but will earn no units.  The “B” grade will be placed on the permanent record and will be used to calculate the GPA.  Students receiving a grade below a “C” are required to repeat the course if it is to be used for college eligibility.  However, it is of no value to repeat a course where the grade is a “C” or better, as colleges recognize only the original grade given.

Concurrent Enrollment at Gavilan Community College or other Community College


Some students take the opportunity to concurrently enroll at Gavilan College (or other community college) while still attending Sobrato.  Concurrent enrollment is a way to earn both high school credit and college credit for the same class.  The Counseling Center has more information regarding this program.

 

Transcripts


Transcripts may be requested from the Sobrato registrar in the attendance area of the Administration Building.  Outside her door you can find the Transcript Request form that should be filled out and returned to her.  It is the policy of this school district to issue one (1) copy of the complete high school transcript free of charge to current students.  Subsequent to the one free copy, there is a $3.00 fee for each copy, which must be paid prior to the processing of the requested copy(ies).  A $5.00 fee will be charged for each copy for all previous graduates. No transcript can be issued on demand.  You must leave a request with the Sobrato registrar and pick up the copy(ies) the next day.  If you must have it on the same day, there is a $5.00 fee for same day service.
