    Expungement Process 

    Middle school students who have taken a high school course while in sixth, seventh, or eighth grade may elect to have the course expunged (grade and credit omitted) from the student’s high school records. The high school credit courses available to middle school students include the following:

     

    • Algebra 1
    • Geometry
    • Algebra II/Trig
    • Robotics
    • World Languages
    Student's GPA and class standing will NOT include the grade from the expunged course, nor will the student receive a credit toward graduation for this course.

     

    Students are not required to repeat a high school-credited course that has been expunged, unless it is a prerequisite and needed to fulfill a graduation requirement. LCPS requires that courses taken in mathematics and world language follow a sequence of courses that include prerequisites and no pre-requisite course may be expunged without repeating.

     

    Course Progressions:

    If a high school math course is expunged in 7th or 8th grade, the results will be one of the following:

    • Student will retake the course in 8th or 9th grade or,

    • Student will retake the course in the summer (if applicable- this would be a discussion with your child's School Counselor and Math teacher)

     

    If a high school world language course is expunged in 7th or 8th grade, the results will be one of the following:

    • Student will repeat the course in 8th or 9th grade, or

    • Student can switch to a different World Language Elective, or

    • Student can switch to a different elective

    • Student can retake the course in the summer (if applicable- this would be a discussion with your child's School Counselor and World Language teacher)

     

    If a middle school student receives a grade of “F” in a high school credit bearing course, that grade and course will automatically be expunged by your student’s school counselor. No permission click response needed.

     

    Students do have an opportunity to enroll in summer courses through Virtual Loudoun Online Learning. Summer courses taken following the promotion of 8th grade are not eligible for expungement.

     

    Strong consideration should be given for expunging low grades in credit-bearing courses. Below are some additional examples to consider:

     

    • Grades lower than a B- will equate to less than 3.0 GPA

    • Mastered or feel confident with the content? Expunging and repeating gives students an opportunity to increase their understanding of the content and improve the grade

    If you wish to expunge the grade for a high school course taken in middle school, the expungement form must be completed through Permission Click. Expungement requests should be submitted to the school counseling department no later than the end of the first quarter of the 2024-2025 school year.

    Please note the following:

    • If your student is a current sixth or seventh grader, please submit the form to your student's middle school counselor. This link can be found at the bottom of your Middle School Web site and is linked below

     
    • If your student is a current eighth grader, please submit the form on or before the end of the first quarter of the 2024-2025 school year through your student’s home high school link. Please assure you are using the correct link.

     
    • Courses taken in middle school cannot be expunged after the end of the first quarter of the 2024-2025 school year.

    • To successfully meet the prerequisite requirements for course sequencing students may be enrolled in the same course they are expunging for the upcoming school year,

      • Example: Algebra 1 is expunged in 8th grade, must repeat Algebra 1 in 9th grade

    Please be advised that the decision to expunge a grade is irreversible.

    If you have questions, please contact your child's middle school counselor.
