Grading Policy

Categories:

  • 50% homework/daily work (Attendance)
    • A portion of the daily work is oral participation. Frequent absences can have a negative effect on grade outcomes if students are not in class for daily lessons.
    • Students are also expected to keep a daily planner entry
  • 50% assessments (Attendance)
    • Our assessments build on what was practiced in class, not set skills to memorize. Absences can have a negative effect on test outcomes if students are not in class for daily lessons.

Skyward Grade Entries: The district allows up to two weeks for teachers to enter graded work.  I do not plan on waiting that long to enter grades, however, if your student does not have a grade entered immediately, especially if it was a late assignment, please wait a few days before contacting me.  (See Late Work below)

Late Work: 

  • Accepted up to 3 days after due date for partial credit
  • Later than 3 days? Accepted for no credit but no longer marked missing
  • Students who have an EXCUSED absence have 2 days to turn in a missed assignment before it is considered late.
  • Late work will be corrected when it can be fit into my schedule.  Please note that I have daily homework and bookkeeping to do, so when a students falls behind in turning in assignments, it causes extra work on my behalf.

Absences:

  • Students who have an EXCUSED absence have 2 days to turn in a missed assignment before it is considered late.
  • It is a student's responsibility to inquire about assignments that were missed during an absence.
