Grading: The district grading policy for grades 6-8 is as follows:

Homework/Daily Grades will be 60% and Assessments will be 40% of the student’s grade.

Late Work:

Daily assignments may be turned in one day late but will only receive a 70 and must be completed in full. I encourage all students to not make a habit of turning work in late. It is my observation that most MS students fail a course not from poor grades but rather from not completing the assignment at all and receiving zeros.

**Due to the high standards and expectations of PreAP courses, I do not give extra credit or drop the lowest grade for PreAP.

Make-Up Work: Make-up work is the responsibility of the student. If a student is absent, it is her/his responsibility to check with me for information regarding the work the individual missed. Work should be completed in a timely manner consistent with the number of days absent.

Retake Policy: A student may request a retake for a failing daily grade or test if:

  1. The assignment was turned in on time. No late work.

b.70% of the original assignment was attempted.

The student will receive at most a 70 on the assignment or test.

The student has 4 days from the day he/she was informed of their grade to come into tutorials (before school, after school, or during lunch) and redo the assignment.

Daily Items Needed:

Folder with pockets and brads (color will be determined by class period)
