|Kindergarten - 11th grade||Students in grades K-11 during the 2020-2021 school year with unsatisfactory letter grades (D or F) may request to have a consultation meeting to discuss being retained in the previous grade level. When this form gets submitted to your school site, the school will schedule a meeting to discuss your request and next steps. Please understand that a consultation meeting to discuss retention will not guarantee that your student will be retained. (BP5123)|
|Grades 9-12||High school students during the 2020-2021 school year may request to have one or more of their letter grades converted to Pass/Fail. Please understand that this change will not affect the student’s GPA, but that some universities may not accept a grade of “Pass.” If requesting this option, please include a copy of the Grade Change Form along with the AB 104 Request Form.|

I understand that I may not be eligible to attend a 4-year university directly after high school and may first need to attend a community college.|
|Grades 11 and 12||If the student was in the 11th or 12th grade in the 2020-2021 school year and the student did not graduate or is not on-track to graduate, the student may request to remain in high school for a fifth year.|
