Grading Practices

  • Checking Assignments on Infinite Campus--

    Some teachers input grades daily, some weekly, and bi-weekly. Any missing assignments flagged with an "M" will have a grade of ZERO automatically averaged in. So--ouch!--that may lower the average quite a bit and the missing work should addressed as soon as possible. And please note, the grade of zero will be changed as soon as the student makes up the missing work. In addition, please be aware that grades fluctuate greatly at the start of a marking period. Please wait a few weeks before contacting the teacher.  

    Late Work--

    Students are expected to complete any late work and should discuss with the teacher what should be done. Some teachers expect students to come in for lunch to get caught up on homework that was not done for that day. If more than one homework is not completed for that day, the student may be asked to stay after school to make up the missed assignments.

    Exams/Quizzes--

    Should be made up ASAP so that grades may be entered and material be reviewed after the assessment.

    Re-Takes--

    Every teacher has different policies around re-takes. It should be assumed that a re-take is not an option, but if the student did not perform well, some re-take options may be put in place. Remember, re-takes are not offered just because a student didn't study, but are offered as a chance to show competency in the learning.

    Absences--

    If a student is absent for two or more days, a homework request may be placed by calling Mrs. Manzella at 267-1805. Teachers have until 3pm to gather materials, so you may pick them up any time after that. The homework pick-up area is right outside the main office. Just note, some teachers may not put any work in the envelope if the assignment is posted on the teacher's homework calendar on the class website. So please check teacher websites as well. It is also understandable that if printing the attached worksheets on the website is an issue, printouts are always available upon the student's return.
