(b) May allow a student a reasonable opportunity to retake or redo a final assessment or assignment for which the student received a failing grade in a subject or course.
(c) Shall require that an assignment, assessment, subject, or course grade issued by a teacher is final and may not be changed unless the grade is found to be erroneous, arbitrary, or inconsistent with the district approved grading policy, and after the principal or teacher's immediate supervisor consults with the teacher.
