Important Information On Grade Promotion And Graduation Eligibility For Fort Worth ISD Students

The Fort Worth Independent School District is sharing important information regarding grading and requirements for graduation and class promotion eligibility during the Coronavirus closure.

Generally speaking, the District will adopt a Pass or Fail grading criteria for the last two six-week periods of the school year. 

The two attached documents contain specific guidelines as to how grades will be calculated, how class rank will be determined, and the requirements for grade promotion.

Here are a few highlights:


·       For the fifth and sixth six-weeks grading period, students will receive a Pass/Fail grade.  This will be for all grades, 1-12, and in every subject.


·       Students will receive at least one assignment a week.  Those assignments will be graded on a pass/fail basis.


·       The GPA and Class Rank as of the end of the first semester will be used to determine Valedictorian, Salutatorian, and Latin Honors for graduating seniors.


These documents are also posted on the Fort Worth ISD website. 

Although graduation requirements are contained in these documents, the District has not yet made any decision regarding graduation ceremonies.
