Physical Science is a high school credit-bearing course that will show up on your child’s transcript. As with all high school courses, there is a designated ‘drop’ date that students can drop the course with no penalty (it won’t show up on their transcript and no grades are recorded). If a student does not drop the course within the designated timeline, the course will appear on the transcript. These students completing the course or not dropping the course by the required date could re-take the course. The new grade earned would be used in the overall GPA calculation, but the transcript would indicate the course had been re-taken.
