All work falls into 2 categories: formative and summative. Formative grades are worth 50% of a student's grade and include their daily work, homework, quizzes. Summative grades are worth 50% of a student's grade and include their unit assessments and projects.
All students are expected to turn in their work by the due date. Late work will be accepted for 5 days with a penalty of 10 points per day, with a maximum deduction of 30 points. On the 6th day, the student will earn a zero. If extenuating circumstances arise that cause work to not be turned in on time please contact me.
All other work other than exams: Students may receive an alternative assignment or do corrections for any failing work other than exams. Alternative assignments and corrections will earn a maximum grade of a 70. It is the student's responsibility to complete and turn in alternative assignments or corrections.
Exams: Students who fail an exam are eligible to take a retest. Students have 1 week from the time they receive their test grade back to sign up for a retest. In order to do a retest the student must have completed the test review and attended at least one tutoring session. Retests will earn a maximum grade of a 70. It is the student's responsibility to sign up and come in for the retest.
Tutoring will be held weekly on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 7:45-8:05 and afterschool Thursday . If you need more help or you can't do that day come see me to make alternative arrangements.
Homework: This will be in the form of vocabulary quizzes.
Tardies: Students who are tardy to class will be a given a referral to the office after the 4th tardy and beyond. Students will serve a lunch detention. Please see the handbook for more information. I require students to be in their chair by the time the bell rings. If a student is not in their seat, they are considered tardy.
Absences: It is the student's responsibility to check the absent work container located in front of the classroom. There is a folder for each class period. They must see me the day they return to school to double check for missing work. If a student is absent or going to be absent, please email me as soon as possible so I can gather work together.
