Important changes have been made to the district policies on dropping classes! Please review this important information and the changes to the district policy and how it impacts student’s transcripts.
Classes that are dropped during the first four weeks of the first quarter (or third quarter for second semester classes) will not be shown on student's high school transcript. Classes dropped during the remainder of the first quarter (or third quarter for second semester classes) will have a WP (Withdraw Passing) or WF (Withdraw Failing) on their transcript, depending on the student’s current grade. If a student drops a class any time in the second quarter (or fourth quarter for second semester classes), they will receive an “F” on their transcript, no matter what their current grade is in that class. Students will remain in the class they dropped on an audit basis for the remainder of the semester.
Student's grades are accessed thru a online system, called StudentVue. There is a link to StudentVue on the center of the DMHS website. For detailed instructions, see the" DMHS Grades" document below.
