    Grading Policy

    50% Daily Assignments/ Group Work
    20% Weekly Quizzes
    30% Tests/Projects (reports, quizzes)
    (Students may retake a failed test for up to 70% during tutorial before school. Test corrections must be complete before the next unit test. Students may only correct the same test once.)

    Classwork: Classwork is due at the end of the day it is given. We will be having weekly reviews, unit assessments and semester final. In this course classwork is REALLYimportant. It helps you to work with and better understand the new concepts we are learning. The absolute WORST thing you can do is copy someone else’s work. I challenge you to complete your work assignment in a diligent manner, and I guarantee you will see results!

     

    Make-up and Late Work Policy

    Make up work is the students’ responsibility.

    School policy states: “A 20% deduction from the total grade earned will be taken on make-up work for unexcused absences.”

    “Make-up work for excused absences will be eligible for full credit. Students shall receive a 20% deduction from the total grade earned for any assignment or assessment not made up within the allotted time.” “At the secondary school level, reasonable time is defined as one class day per class missed”

    “A 20% deduction from the total grade earned will be taken on make-up work”

    How to get make-up work:

              -Find the day you missed on the classroom page.

              -Read any notes listed on that day.
