Make Up Credit
Davis School District policy requires students to make-up unsatisfactory “U” citizenship grades prior to graduation.
Students are not allowed to graduate, participate in extracurricular activities including sports and class field trips or purchase a parking pass with deficient Citizenship credit. Information regarding what constitutes a “U” is provided in the teacher’s disclosure. The student shall be responsible for checking his or her report card. The fine for receiving a U is $5.00 and is automatically invoiced to the students account. Below are the options available for U make-up:
1. Make-up through the teacher prior to the end of the grading period. Citizenship credit may be made up prior to the U being recorded on the report card, if the teacher will provide activities or duties beyond the class requirements for students to make-up the unsatisfactory citizenship. This is discretionary to the teacher.
