GT classes receive a 1.15 multiplier on the course average for each semester in their grade point average & class rank.
GT students are expected to maintain a 80% of higher in all GT classes or may be put on probation or removed from the GT program.
Assignments are considered LATE if not turned in when collected during that class period. Assignments turned in after collected in class (even if it is the same day or period) are considered LATE
Late work will only be accepted until the Unit Test covering that material. NO late work will be accepted after the test.
A 20% deduction will be assigned for all late work. For example, a grade of 100 will be recorded as an 80.
Any student may choose to retake a unit test that they have failed at any point BEFORE the next unit test is given. All retests need to be completed in tutoring during normal tutoring hours. When recording the retest grade, the highest of the test grades will be recorded for a maximum grade of 70. The student MUST do a tutoring session with me or show me corrections before they will be allowed to retest.
All quizzes, tests, and projects (unless otherwise instructed by the teacher) are to be completed individually and with out cell phones. Any cell phone out during a test/quiz/project results in an automatic ZERO regardless of what they were doing on the phone. Homework may be worked on collaborative as long as each student is contributing and DOING THEIR OWN WORK (NO COPYING!!) Any student caught cheating will receive a ZERO for the assignment and written up per Madison Academic Dishonesty Policy. These zeros CANNOT be made up.
