AB 104: Retention, Exemptions

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


This means, Murrieta Valley USD must have:


Retention: A process for students who were enrolled in grades K-11 for the 2020-2021 year to request to repeat the                                            last grade.


Exemption: Exemption from district graduation requirements for students in grade 12 who are not on track to graduate.

Parents/Guardians of students receiving deficient grades (NC-Not Currently on Target, D, or F) in at least half of their classes/coursework in the 2020-21 school year may request to have their student retained and repeat the previous year’s grade. If you would like to discuss possible retention for your student, please complete this form and your student’s school site will reach out to schedule a retention meeting within 30 days of receiving your request.
