Absences
Students who have an excused absence have 2 days for every day absent to turn in missed work. If an assignment was due the day you were gone, it is due the day you come back. Missed work will be marked as missing in Portal until turned in, even if it was an excused absence; however, there will not be a penalty if it is turned in within the two days.
 
Grading
Grade Breakdown: (With the exception of Math) 30% of the quarter grade is made up of “Daily Work” such as in-class activities and homework. 70% of the quarter grade is made up of “Assessments” such as quizzes, tests, and projects. Each quarter counts for 25% of the Final Grade. ALL Middle School Math courses will be graded 100% on assessment results.
 
Late Work: An assignment is considered late if it is not turned in when the teacher asks for it (due date). Late work will be accepted up until the end of the quarter. Late work received after due date, before the end of the quarter, will receive up to 60% of assignment total.
