Weighted Grading Structure


Required Task

Percentage of Grade






Extra Credit Points: Extra credit points will be given to students periodically. It is the student's responsibility to keep up with the points that they are given. Extra points may be used on low daily and test scores.  YOU MUST PASS THE TEST WITH A GRADE OF 60 OR BETTER TO USE POINTS ON TEST. Absences: It is the student's responsibility to make arrangements for make-up tests, find out what assignments are missing, and when they are due. On all missed assignment being turned in put the date the assignment was missed.

Make-up Work

If a student is absent for any excused reason as defined in the Student Handbook, “the student shall be allowed to make-up school work missed during those absence(s). The student will be responsible for contacting the teacher(s) within three (3) days to arrange a time within a two (2) week period to make up work and/or examinations from said absence(s).”  This opportunity does not require that the teacher re-teach the lesson, but it does require that the student receive a reasonable opportunity to learn missed lessons.  The teacher is not obligated to provide make up work or examinations for a student absent for unexcused reasons other than suspensions” (Student Handbook, 2014). A list of Missed Assignments will be put on Google Classroom; however, students must schedule a time to make-up missed assignments, test, and/or quizzes from the teacher. See Schedule below

Redo/Retake/Late Assignments

Students may redo/retake any test or assignment that they have failed. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the teacher one day in advance to schedule a retake of the failed assignment. The highest grade that a student can make on any Retake/Redo Assignment is a 75/C. Twenty-five (25%) will be deducted on all redo/retake assignments.  Late assignments will have 25%  deducted, no exceptions.  Most work will be due at 8:00 am, no exceptions.


Remediation Assignments/RTI Accommodations

Students that may need remediation/RTI Accommodations will be made on a need basis.  It is still up to the student to take advantage of these accommodations so he or she will be successful in class.













After school



NOTE: There will not be any office hours during the week of Finals. No make-up work may be turned in during the week of finals.
