Semester 2 Pass/Fail FAQs

BHHS administration has extended the Pass/Fail option to the end of the semester for students. This is an option for students to consider given the multitude of challenges this semester. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) below for more details on this option and process to follow.

How do I request a Pass/Fail Grade for a class?

Students must first have communicated with their teacher(s) to determine if selecting a pass/fail grading option is in their best interest in the involved course(s).  If it is agreed upon that a student should move forward with a pass/fail, the student should then access the electronic request form which is posted in students' Counseling Canvas pages.

How many classes can I request a Pass/Fail Grade for?

There is no limit on the number of classes a student can take pass/fail

Do I have to take pass/fail for all my classes, or can I only select certain ones?

No, this does not automatically apply to all classes.  Students can select which classes they want to take pass/fail.  

Are Pass/Fail Grades required of students?

No, this is simply an available option and students must make a thoughtful decision as to whether or not this is the best choice for them.

When is the deadline to request a Pass/Fail Grade?

Grade 12:  May 17, 2021

Grades 9-11:  June 7, 2021

Can I still remove the pass fail grade and go back to a letter grade?

Yes, as long as it’s prior to the deadlines.

What will the pass/fail option look like on my transcript? 

Passing grades will show as a “G”, which will not factor into your overall GPA.  Failing grades will reflect a failure “E” and is factored into your GPA.

How will pass/fail look to colleges?

This will vary by student and college; you will need to have a personal conversation with your counselor.

How does a student determine what is required of him/her to pass a class?

This must be worked out and clarified with the teacher of the course directly.

Graduation Tickets

After speaking with DTE personnel there has been a change to the ticketing process for graduation. 

Families will be issued four tickets per student, grouped in pods, in the pavilion at DTE.  The lawn will not be used per DTE and MDHHS regulations. The good news is ALL SEATING will be in the pavilion. Seating pods will be assigned using a lottery system and tickets will be distributed to each student in their packet at graduation rehearsal on June 2.  BHHS will provide DTE the main family contact for each student for contract tracing purposes.  Here is the link for DTE’s Event Wellness Survey that must be completed within 24 hours of the event. 

MANDATORY graduation rehearsal and check-out will take place on Wednesday, June 2, at 8:30 a.m. at the Bloomfield Hills High School football field.

Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

May is Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month – a celebration of Asians and Pacific Islanders in the United States. A rather broad term, Asian/Pacific encompasses all of the Asian continent and the Pacific islands of Melanesia (New Guinea, New Caledonia, Vanuatu, Fiji and the Solomon Islands), Micronesia (Marianas, Guam, Wake Island, Palau, Marshall Islands, Kiribati, Nauru and the Federated States of Micronesia) and Polynesia (New Zealand, Hawaiian Islands, Rotuma, Midway Islands, Samoa, American Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu, Cook Islands, French Polynesia and Easter Island).

The roots of Asian/Pacific American Heritage Month can be traced back to 1976, when Jeanie Jew, president of the Organization of Chinese American Women, contacted government officials in response to the lack of Asian Pacific representation in the U.S. bicentennial celebrations that same year. The observance began in 1979 as Asian Heritage Week, established by congressional proclamation. In May 1990, the holiday was expanded further when President George Bush signed a proclamation making it month-long for that year. On October 23, 1992, Bush signed legislation designating May of every year Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. The diversity and common experiences of the many ethnic groups are celebrated during Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with numerous community festivals as well as government-sponsored activities.
