Make Up Work Policy—It is the student’s responsibility to arrange for make-up work immediately upon his/her return to school. Make-up work and tests arrangements should be completed within a reasonable time.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FOLLOWING SCHOOLWIDE AND DEPARTMENTWIDE POLICIES REGARDING LATE WORK AND TEST CORRECTIONS WILL BE ENFORCED IN MY CLASS:
LATE WORK POLICY
Late daily work and major grades will have 10 points taken off each day it is late up to one week. After that, it will be a zero.
All projects outside of class will be assigned a one week due date. This means that they may be turned in at any time during that week without being counted late. After that last day of that week, the work will be considered late and 10 points will be deducted per day.
MAJOR GRADE WRITING ASSIGNMENTS
All writing assignments that students are given to complete at home are due on the specified due date. 10 points will be deducted per day that the assignment is late.
One exam per 9 weeks may be retaken for a highest possible grade of a 70. The student must arrange for a retest with their teacher within one week of receiving their graded test in order to retest.
CHEATING AND PLAGIARISM POLICY
Cheating in any form will not be tolerated, and, if caught cheating, any student voluntarily involved will receive a grade of a zero (this includes tests and quizzes)
Plagiarism is considered cheating and will result in a grade of a zero.
