    Grading Policy

    Course grades are based on assessments, classwork, homework, and projects. 70% of the grade is based on assessments and 30% is based on works, including classwork, homework, projects, and class participation. Grades will be updated periodically on Aeries.net.

    Behavior

    Work habits grades are based on classroom behavior. Students are expected to complete all work, actively participate in class, and act in accordance with school and class rules (no hats, electronics, gum, food & drinks, etc). Failure to follow these rules will result in a grade of Needs Improvement (N) or Unsatisfactory (U). A variety of corrective measures will be used to maintain a successful learning environment. Inappropriate behavior will result in one or more of the following:

    1. Time out
    2. Detention
    3.  Home contact
    4. Referral to the office
    5. Suspended from the class    

     

    Assessment

    If a student is absent on the day of an assessment, a make-up assessment will be taken on the day the student returns to the school. It is the student’s responsibility to request the make-up assessment upon their return to class. If a student fails to take a make-up assessment, a score of zero will be recorded for that assessment. To qualify for retaking the failing assessment, students need to maintain satisfactory, respectful behaviors in class. Students may retake a failing assessment for a new score up to 70% for one time, before it is due on the corresponding 6-week progress report. The structure of questions will be the same on original quizzes, but the number may be changed.

     

    Homework

    Homework is due the following day after the day it is assigned. Homework is graded on an effort basis. Credit is earned by copying each problem and showing step-by-step process of solving each problem.

     

    Late work

    Excused absences will not count as late. Assignments incomplete upon entry to the class will be counted as late. Late assignment turned in will be given 50% credit.   

     

    ACADEMIC HONESTY

    Academic cheating will result in a score of ZERO on the assignment, or assessment. An unsatisfactory (U) will be entered for Citizenship and Work Habits for the semester. It is important to maintain academic honesty in all coursework. It is student’s responsibility to read the student handbook to become fully aware of the school philosophy and policy on this subject. Repeated disruptions or communications during an assessment will result in a score of Zero. Also, having any unauthorized materials out or present during an assessment will be considered cheating. This includes but is not limited to all personal electronic devices.
