Greenwich High School Students started this petition to Superintendent of Schools: Toni Jones and

Greenwich Board of Education and Administration at Greenwich High School
We believe that making classes pass/fail would be a grave mistake. Making classes pass or fail will take away all the hard work students have put into classes in the past quarter, and year. This is not in attempt to hurt students, or aka ether life harder, simply keeping school fair, and an equal-opportunity based environment.  School should be a merit based community, and changing classes to pass or fail will take this away from our learning experience. Students in Honors and AP classes could see no benefit from the extra time and effort they have dedicated to those higher level classes. Why should we risk punishing those who take learning more serious than others? Students may loose motivation to take advantage of the online learning that we have been provided. Continuing our education during theses trying times is crucial and students must to be motivated to do so. This decision could greatly affect college admissions for many students, possible making their cumulative GPA worth less. We believe that a pass/fail system will only hurts the hard-working students at Greenwich High School, and should not even be considered. It is up to students to continue striving for academic excellence, so a pass/fail system will only instill a false sense of security in some that work to the best of their ability. It is essential that students receive individual grades to serve as the best benchmark for their skill level and persistence. After many schools are becoming test optional, students must be able to prove themselves through their classes as an alternative to these standardized tests, which are becoming less and less available to students as a result of the recent COVID-19 pandemic.
