Fort Worth ISD has come up with new plans to help failing students match up to their level during the pandemic.

This month, a memo was sent to all schools this month, highlighting plans to help students to make up for failing grades before the school year is over.

Now, students failing in one subject will be allowed to retake the test and pass with shinning grades.

The district has reported a large number of students who are failing at least one class. The district says the pandemic created circumstances for students to study at home and impacted their studies.

This month, Fort Worth ISD teachers and staff were notified about a grade and credit recovery plan.

The plan would allow students to make up assignments and tests scored lower than a 70. Students have until the last day of school this year to make up those assignments or tests.

FWISD Associate Superintendent Sara Arispe said, "I wanted to reassure you that our teachers and campus leaders are paying close attention to this and set up ways for our students to make up and get those grades up before the end of the semester."
