COURSE REQUIREMENTS

Deadlines for all assignments are listed in Canvas.

GRADING: To determine your final grade in the course, I will calculate your percentage by dividing your
total earned points by the total points possible. These will be converted to letter grades as follows:

90-100% = A 80-89% = B 70-79% = C 60-69% = D < 60% = F

ASSIGNMENT SUBMISSION: All work must be submitted electronically or through the student’s
Interactive Notebook. Students will take a picture of any paper assignment and submit that picture
through Canvas or Google Drive. If an assignment cannot be submitted electronically, the student must
make an appointment for an unscheduled Notebook Check, so that all work can be reviewed and
graded.

LATE WORK: Missed Work: Students are required to complete any and all missing assignments when
they have been absent, whether the absence is excused or unexcused. Those assignments will be
located in Canvas for the students to access. Sometimes copies will be available, but if there are no
copies available for the student, then it will be the student’s responsibility to either re-write the
document from Canvas or make a copy. Students do not receive full credit for missing or late work. All
missing work must be turned in within the week.

RETEST/RESUBMISSION POLICY: In order to take a retest, a student must:


1. Attend after school tutoring OR tutoring during lunch.
2. Complete (in tutoring) test corrections and justify why the answer is what it
is/your mistake.
3. The retest date will be announced after the test is given, and the date will usually
be within 10 days of the original test date. There will only be one retest date per
unit and retests will only be given on the current unit just completed.
4. Only students who score lower than an 79% on the original test will be permitted
to retest. In addition, the retest grade may not exceed 79%.
5. Students who score above a 79% are allowed to come after school and do test
corrections for half credit added back to grade.
Retesting is a privilege not an entitlement and therefore, if students are unable to attend a
tutoring to discuss test corrections, they will lose the opportunity..

CMS policy states that if a student is absent for the original test, they have up to 5 school
days to arrange a makeup of that same test with their teacher. This is student initiated.
