    • Late Work

    Late work is any assignment that is not turned in on the due date.

    Late work may be turned in up to three weeks after the assignment is due for the maximum grade of an 80.

    • Make-up Work

    The work that was due on the day of the absence is expected to be turned in completed on the next class day.  A student has one week to complete a quiz, test, project or homework assignment that was given on the day the student was absent for full credit.    After the first week, a student may still complete a quiz, test or project but only for a maximum grade of 80.

    • Re-Teaching & Re- Testing

    The District’s goal is for every student to master all the TEKS specified for each grade level.

    A. If 50% or more of students in a class fail to demonstrate mastery of TEKS on an assessment, the teacher will provide an opportunity for re-teaching and re-testing during class time. All students in the class will be given the opportunity for re-teach and re-test. The higher of the two grades will be recorded in the grade book. 

    B. If fewer than 50% of all students in a class fail to demonstrate mastery of TEKS on an assessment, the teachers will provide re-teaching and re-testing during or outside of class time. The grade on the re-assessment will be recorded as no higher than 70 if mastery is demonstrated. If mastery is not demonstrated, the higher grade will be recorded. 

    Re-teaching/re-testing provisions do not apply to semester exams.

    • Supply List

    All students and all periods must have:                                  

    One binder                  loose- leaf paper        

    pens                            pencils                        

    highlighter                  markers or colored pencils

    tissues

    • Discipline

    I will follow these procedures should a discipline problem arise:

    1. Verbal warning
    2. One - hour detention
    3. Parent phone call/meeting
    4. Office Referral
    • Conduct Grades

    Student conduct grades will negatively be affected by:

    • acquiring excessive tardies
    • persistent misconduct (off-task behavior, talking at inappropriate times, ignoring teacher directions, inappropriate language/comments, etc.)
    • violating the Academic Honesty Policy
    • receiving office referrals 

    All students begin the term with a conduct grade of “S” (Satisfactory).  Students whose conduct becomes a disruption will have their parents contacted (through e-mail, phone or a face-to-face conference).  If a student’s parents are contacted in regards to the same discipline issue twice in a semester, the student’s conduct grade will be lowered to “N” (Needs Improvement).  If a student’s parents are contacted three times in one semester in regards to the same discipline issue, the student’s conduct grade will be lowered to “U” (Unsatisfactory).

    In cases of extreme or particularly disruptive behavior, a student will be issued an office referral to speak with his/her administrator.  Receiving one office referral in a semester will automatically lower a student’s conduct grade to “N” (Needs Improvement).  Receiving two office referrals in a semester will automatically lower a student’s conduct grade to “U” (Unsatisfactory).

    Per NEISD Exam Exemption Guidelines: if a student receives a “U” in conduct at any point during the semester, that student is automatically ineligible to receive a Semester Exam Exemption in that course for that semester.
