What happens if your student fails a class? The State of Florida says if you fail a class, you’re going to have to fix it, and the only way to fix it is to do it over.
Hypothetically let’s say your child fails science and history this year…..
If your child fails Science and History, his/her schedule next year will look something like this:
Period 1: Math Period 2: Math Period 3: Science Period 4: Science (re-do) Period 5: Language Arts Period 6: Language Arts Period 7: Social Studies Period 8 : Social Studies (re-do)
Whoa! Two sciences and two histories... lots of work.
Students cannot progress to the next grade if 3 core classes are failed. Now is the time to buckle down and study hard!
There’s much work to be done!
…and remember this is where your child’s FUTURE begins!
