 Late Work Policy

​The following grading protocol will apply to missing assignments.  Extenuating circumstances may warrant review by teacher and administration.

One class period late will result in a 10% reduction of grade earned.
Two class periods late will result in a 20% reduction of grade earned.
No credit will be given for assignments turned in three or more class periods late.

 Retesting Policy

To qualify for retesting a student must meet the following requirements:

All students are eligible to apply for a retest.

Provide to the instructor, prior to the next class meeting after receiving results, a detailed examination of the initial assessment with explanation of errors.

Receive an entrance ticket from instructor to retake the assessment.

If a student qualifies for retesting the following protocols are in place:

In order not to disrupt either student or teacher instructional minutes, retesting will be available on Saturday mornings from 8 AM to 11 AM on an as needed basis.  Individual cases of extenuating circumstances may be considered by faculty and administration.

Students MUST have an entrance ticket from instructor to gain entrance.

Retests MUST be completed within two weekends of receiving the entrance ticket.  If the retest is not completed within the two weekend timeframe the original grade will be entered for the assessment.  A student who twice does not meet the timeframe requirements will no longer be eligible for retesting for the remainder of the semester.

Retest grades will be valued at 92% and will replace the grade earned on the original assessment even if it is the lower of the two.
