AB 104 Information
New law expands grading and recovery options for students


The state of California recently enacted a new law – Assembly Bill (AB) 104 – that will expand learning and credit recovery options for students who may have struggled academically during the pandemic-impacted 2020-2021 school year.

These include a process for students who were enrolled in grades K-11 for the 2020-2021 year to request to repeat the last grade.
