 MCPS Grading and Reporting

Withdrawal from Courses

If a student withdraws from a course before the end of the fifth week (25 school days), no notation is made on the student's permanent record card or report card. The request to withdraw must be made by the 25th school day. If the student withdraws after 25 school days of the course, the date of the withdrawal and the achievement attained to the time of withdrawal will be entered on the report card and permanent record. Withdrawal grades are not used in computing GPA or WGPA. However, they are included to determine student academic eligibility for participation in extracurricular activities.

Withdrawal from School

To withdraw from Wootton High School , please call the Registrar, Antoinette Yanis, at 240-740-1554 to schedule an appointment regarding withdrawal procedures. A letter of withdrawal must be on file before transcripts, report cards and other school records will be mailed to the receiving school.
