Before making any final decisions, we will be happy to talk and work with you to help you make the best decision based on your situation.  Additionally, if it is in your best interest to receive grades, you may receive an "M" grade consistent with Pennsylvania Act 59 of 2014.  Information on Act 59 can be found on the Pennsylvania state legislature web site here.
