So, my school (CEC) let me take college classes at CCD because I have all of my high school credits done before I graduated, I fast-tracked this semester. Now, at senior checkout, CEC needs an official signature or other proof of me passing the college classes I took, along with other signatures from various CEC staff before they tell me that I ca walk with the other seniors this year. My 3 professors are already gone for the semester, classes ended on the 5th and 7th, So I cannot get a signature from them. However, CCD announced some time ago that final grades were to be posted on the 18th (today). Since I did not get the signatures, CEC told me that I need to submit proof of passing the classes with the final grade postings. About 20 minutes ago, I opened up the CCD web page, logged in, and sure enough, my grades were there....mostly. I took 3 classes, 2 of the final grades were posted. Naturally, I panicked. I did some investigation and found out that the grades for MAT120 are still in progress. I need the final grade for that class to prove to CEC that I passed, which I don't understand: I have my high school graduation requirements fulfilled, so I am guaranteed to graduate, therefore, I should be guaranteed to walk with the other seniors at the ceremony, right? Even if I don't pass MAT (which I totally did), The worst that could happen is I would have to pay for the class, but no matter what, I should walk with the other seniors. My sister is going to have the car back to me by ~1:00-1:30 (about an hour from now). So I have to get to CEC and find out how I am going to walk with the other seniors. I can prove that I passed MAT120 even without the signature or online posting: The course syllabus shows the requirements for different grades with a point system, I also have all my previous grades for the semester, except for the final and test #3
, both of which I took, so even if I did not take those tests, with the points I cumulated, the worst grade I could get is either a low C or a high D, so there is no way to deny that I passed, and when my sister gets home, I have to go to CEC and CCD and talk to different people to complete my senior checkout. There is no possible way that CEC can deny that I have fullfilled everything I needed to walk with the other seniors, sure I didn't get the official grade for MAT, but I can prove I passed with solid, undenyable evidence. If CEC tries to bullshit their way out of giving me my right to walk at the ceremony, I will go ape shit and argue like I have never argued before. Assuming that things do work out, there is also the matter of getting enough tickets to invite everyone I need. CEC also pissed me off by telling me that I only get, like, 8 tickets or something, I need at least twice as much. CEC told me I can buy a maximum of 2 more for $10 per ticket, which is retarded, plus a couple of my friends are selling tickets for $10 per ticket for ones they didn't use. So if I want to invite everyone, someones gonna have to pay up. Either that or I will have to invite less people...
My initial invite list:
My mom, Diane, Ashlee, Genta, Brent, Sarah, Mandy, Erik, Susie, Matthew, Matt, Katey, Laurel, Debbie, David, and Tristan. that's 16 people that I need. If CEC decides to be even mroe retarded and I can't get more tickets, I will have to choose between family and friends. Not cool.
So my mission for today comes in two parts:
1- Complete senior checkout, Make sure I make CEC acknowledge that I passed MAT120
2- Obtain all 16 graduation tickets
These two are possibly the most important objectives of my entire four years in high school.
Mission Impossible is set to commence in 30-60 minutes.
Wish me luck.
