Grades will be calculated as follows:
Class Work & Quizzes**
Tests & Projects:
 Projects may be counted in the test grade category or the class work category depending on
the rigor and intensity of the assignment. You will always be told what the assignment will
count for at the onset of the project.*
Long -term assignments or other special projects such, as reports, research papers, etc., are
not normally given extensions. If a specific situation arises, speak with the instructor. Each
student’s situation will be judged individually based on the absence. Long -term
assignments or reports will be downgraded, five points per day if they are late. NO
Quizzes may be announced or unannounced. At times classwork may count as a quiz
All tests will be announced in advance.
Points will be subtracted from the class participation grade for misconduct, missed assignments,
lack of class participation, lack of supplies/book/notebook. Any questions concerning a student’s
grade should be discussed with the instructor.
 Homework will be assigned and will be collected at the beginning of the class period. These
homework assignments can be completed at home or at school. Work turned in late or after
the class period begins will not be given credit. YOU must do ALL of your own work or
school policies for cheating will be applied.
Extra Help
Extra help is available with prior arrangements. If you make arrangements for help, I expect you to
be there too!
Make-up Work
It is the student’s responsibility for makeup of all work missed due to an absence-that includes all
classwork, homework, quizzes, tests, or any other assignments. Students absent the day of an
announced quiz or test will be expected to take the quiz or test the first day present. Students absent
the day before an announced quiz or test will be expected to take the quiz or test with the class.
Missed quizzes or tests due to a long-term absence should be made up within one week after school
or during an IST. Unless a teacher grants special exceptions, failure to make up work within one
week will result in a zero.

follow all school rules and policies as stated in your student handbook.
