Students will receive homework nearly every night.  Assignments will be graded on completion and accuracy.  As a class we will always go over the answers to the assigned homework, so students should be ready to ask and answer questions.

Growth (10%) :

Students’ grades for this section will be based on growth (from beginning, middle, to end of year) on whole school interim assessments, classroom interim assessments, REACH Performance Tasks, and SAT Test. Yes, you should put effort into these tests because they will all count towards your grade in some way!

Final Exams (10%) :

Students will take two Final Exams during the school year; one in January at the end of Semester 1 and one in June at the end of Semester 2.

Excused Absences:

If a student knows s/he will be absent, it is their responsibility to tell their teachers and make arrangements with a classmate or teacher to get the missed class notes and homework assignment information. You must bring in the excusal note the day you return from your absence!

  • Homework Makeup

    • One day plus the number of absences. For example, if one day was missed, the homework assigned that missed day will be due two days after the student’s return.

  • Quizzes and Tests Makeup

    • Students who miss one day must make up the quiz or test the next day after school during detention.

    • Students who have extended absences have an extended time to make it up per teacher discretion.

  • Papers / Projects

    • Due the day the student returns. For each day late, the grade drops 10% (by one letter grade). Papers and projects will be accepted up to 2 weeks late (0% credit).

Unexcused Absences:

If a student has an unexcused absence, s/he will receive an automatic zero for all assignments that were due or handed out that day. There are no makeup opportunities allowed.
