Important Note about Homework and Classwork: Homework will rarely be assigned. Homework that is assigned is to practice concepts only and will not be graded. Any Classwork is meant to be done in class and NOT for homework. Classwork and Projects completed outside of class without instruction to do so will not be accepted and will have to be redone by the Late Due Date, or it will be entered in the gradebook as an Incomplete. It is important that ALL students make the BEST use of EVERY class period. Ample time will be given in class to complete assignments. If a student does not complete this assignment in the allotted amount of class time, I will be available at lunch and after school if needed.
Important Note About Late/Incomplete Assignments: Assignments will be accepted up to 1 week after the due date. After this, assignments will not be accepted and be entered as Incomplete in the gradebook which is equal to 50%
Important Note about Test Retakes: After a test is given, students may choose retake the test to earn a better grade. In order to retake a test, the student must complete any missing work AND complete an extra assignment. These extra assignments will vary, but will usually consist of work on Study Island or a Study Guide that must be 100% correct and 100% complete. Students will also have to find time outside of class to conference with me. By doing this, we ensure that students are taking responsibility for their assignments, their learning, and themselves.
