Grading Policy
 
Students are graded on the percentages below.  Homework, in-class assignments, projects, essays, reports, quizzes and tests will determine the student’s quarterly grade.
 
Homework                                      10%
In-Class Assignments                          30%
Quizzes                                        25%
Tests/Projects/Writing Pieces        35%
 
Absentee Policy - Students are expected to make-up all assignments upon return from an absence.  The number of days allowed for make-up work depends on the number of days the student was absent.  It is the responsibility of the student to inquire as to what he or she missed and then make the work up.  If the student fails to make-up the assignment in a timely manner, it will result in a zero.
 
Late Work - Students are expected to turn assignments and projects in on time.  Homework is beneficial if the skill is practiced following the lesson.  Therefore, no late homework will be accepted unless due to an absence from class.  Writing assignments and projects will receive a deduction of 5 points per day for every day they are late.
