Dear Supporter of Durham Athletics,                                                                  October, 2021

Durham High Cheerleaders would like to raise funds to help support the purchase of new bleachers in the football stadium and bolster funds to replenish the cheerleaders program needs.  Our fundraiser for this year is an inaugural bicycle marathon called “Mini Fondo.” We are very excited to announce that we will be starting the tradition by offering an in-person and virtual event (with COVID protocols in place) on November 13, 2021. All pre-registration bike participants will receive a shirt with sponsor names prominently printed on the back of the shirts if registered by October 15, 2021.

Your support of Durham athletics is needed to complete the last stage of the stadium project. We are planning some additional fundraising events, but the Bike Marathon will be our primary (and hopefully most lucrative) fundraiser. We plan to provide 90% of funds raised toward the bleachers.

If you would like to generously sponsor this year’s Bike Marathon, there are four sponsorship levels outlined below.

  • $1,000 (gold) business name/logo printed on the top tier on the back of the participant shirt and the registration website (you provide the artwork). You will also receive two free bike registrations for the 5K, 10K, or marathon event.
  • $500 (silver) – business name/logo printed on the participant shirt (second tier) and the registration website as well as a free bike registration for the 5K, 10K, or marathon event
  • $300 – (bronze) business name/logo printed on the participant shirt (third tier) and the registration website as well as a free bike registration for the 5K, 10K, or marathon event
  • $100 – (blue) business name printed on the participant shirt (fourth tier)

To sponsor you can complete your sponsorship and payment electronically at: https://runsignup.com/CreateRaceSponsor/113208/t/iYs2Ik77uOF054KMOjUKNlKF35PNXk05

Kindly submit your sponsorship by October 8, 2021 to be included on the race shirt. If you have any questions regarding sponsorship, please do not hesitate to contact Stacy Ann Button at 530-570-3226 or stcynn491@yahoo.com   Please email your electronic business logo to durhamcheer@yahoo.com.

You can register for the event electronically at:  https://runsignup.com/Race/CA/Durham/DurhamMiniFondo

Thank you for supporting Durham High School.  Your generous donation will help toward completing the last stage of the stadium project at Durham schools!

Dear Parent/Guardian,

This summer the legislators passed Assembly Bill 104 that allows parents or students over the age of 18 to apply for a grade change from a “deficient letter grade” of C or D to a grade marked as a Pass.  The student or parent has to fill out an application with specific information and the school will change the grade, if appropriate, (no SOU courses), on the permanent transcript.  There is a strict timeline on this offer and the request must be made prior to October 1.  Without the request, the grade earned will stand and become permanent on the transcript.  There are colleges and universities that will accept the “pass” as a grade and they are included in this mailing as a listing of those potential colleges and universities. 

GRADE CHANGES (Letter Grade to Pass/No Pass)

Education Code section 49066.5 (AB 104) establishes that a parent, which includes the natural or adoptive parent or guardian, the person having legal custody, or other educational rights holder, or a student who is age 18 or older and enrolled in high school during the 2020-21 school year, may apply for one or more of their child’s letter grades for a course, taken during the 2020-21 school year in high school, to be changed to a Pass or No Pass on the student’s transcript. There is no limit as to the number or type of courses eligible for this grade change application. The grade change application shall not negatively affect the student’s grade point average or result in the forfeiture of a student’s eligibility for athletics or school programs.

The grade change application must be submitted to your child’s school on or before Friday, October 1, 2021. A school will not accept applications after that date. The school is required to make the change of a student’s grade from a letter grade to a Pass (A-D) or No Pass (F) within 15 days of the request and will notify the student and student’s parent or guardian that the grade was changed.  (SOU COURSES ARE NOT ELIGIBLE FOR GRADE CHANGES).

Absent an application to change a transcript by this date, a letter grade earned in the 2020-21 school year will remain on the student’s transcript. Please note some postsecondary educational institutions, including those in other states, may not accept a Pass or No Pass grade instead of a letter grade for admission purposes.

How to Request a Grade Change Application for the School Year 2020–2021

If you would like to request a GRADE CHANGE APPLICATION SCHOOL YEAR 2020–2021 for an “eligible pupil,” please follow these steps:

Review the Frequently Asked Questions below.

  2. Submit the completed GRADE CHANGE APPLICATION SCHOOL YEAR 2020–2021 form to your student’s school site in person or via email to the school principal using the email subject line: “AB104 Grade Change.” Principal contact information is available online or is rpedrett@durhamunified.org 
  3. Pupil and parents/guardians will be notified of the change within 15 days of the District receiving the application.
