ATTENDANCE
Students are expected to attend class daily. As this is a daily sequence course, missed time means that a student misses
valuable parts of continuous instruction. When absent, it is the student’s responsibility to see the teacher for any missed
assignments. A student is expected to submit or participate in any pre-announced assignments, projects, and/or test(s) upon
the day they return to school. A student with excessive absences will lose credit for the course if they are not passing at the
end of the semester. Students with excessive absences and are passing at the end of the semester may apply for an appeal,
and if the appeal is approved, will receive credit for the course.

GRADING
High school student grades will be determined using the following weights:
Class I assignments: 40% (this includes unit tests, mid-unit tests, benchmarks, major projects, essays,
performance tasks, SLO Post-tests, etc.)
Class II assignments: 30% (this includes quizzes, minor projects, minor writing assignments, vocabulary quizzes,
etc.)
Class III assignments: 10% (this includes homework, classwork, participation, signed papers, etc.)
Final Exam/State required examination – 20%
“Attempted assignments” shall receive a grade of no less that 40%. This means that the assignment MUST
be realistically attempted! If a student chooses to just write his/her name on a paper and turn it in, the 40%
will NOT be awarded. Any work that is purposefully not attempted by a student shall receive a score of
zero (0).
High school make-up work policies:
Students are encouraged and allowed to make up all missing work due to absence. Students who are absent,
regardless of reason, may schedule to make up any work missed within five days of their return to school. This
includes In-School Suspension (ISS) and Out-of-School Suspension (OSS). If a student is present and fails to turn
in work, the students may submit the work based on the teacher’s discretion and classroom policy, but points will
be deducted.

Please do not wait until the end of the grading period to become concerned about your class grade. Students
and parents can check on grades in Infinite Campus at any time.
