49066. (a) When grades are given for any course of instruction
taught in a school district, the grade given to each pupil shall be
the grade determined by the teacher of the course and the
determination of the pupil's grade by the teacher, in the absence of
clerical or mechanical mistake, fraud, bad faith, or incompetency,
shall be final.
(b) The governing board of the school district and the
superintendent of such district shall not order a pupil's grade to be
changed unless the teacher who determined such grade is, to the
extent practicable, given an opportunity to state orally, in writing,
or both, the reasons for which such grade was given and is, to the
extent practicable, included in all discussions relating to the
changing of such grade.
(c) No grade of a pupil participating in a physical education
class, however, may be adversely affected due to the fact that the
pupil does not wear standardized physical education apparel where the
failure to wear such apparel arises from circumstances beyond the
control of the pupil.
