    Late Work
    Late work will be accepted but will result in the immediate loss of 20% of their grade. Absences will extend the deadline for assignment submission but it is the responsibility of the student to inquire about missing work.

    You are tardy at the bell! No exceptions unless you have a pass. After 5 minutes, you will be counted absent. 
    Daily Work / Discussions – 60%
    Projects & Tests – 40%
    Tutoring will be available on Tuesday morning from 8:15 – 8:45 and Thursday afternoon from 4:25 – 5:00. If a student is in need of a different time, arrangements can be made.

    Re-Teach and Re-Assess
    As per the NEISD policy, if more than 50% of a class fails an assessment, the entire lesson will be re-taught and a new assessment will be given. Under these circumstances, students receive the higher of the two assessment grades. If a student fails an assessment and less than 50% of the class has failed, the student will have the opportunity to re-take the assessment outside of normal class time to receive a higher grade, not to exceed 70%.
