Students take at least TWO tests and two quizzes per class or course per semi-quarter. Two to four quizzes may be counted as one test. It is up to the individual teacher to adopt a policy to drop the lowest test grade of a student in calculating the quarter grade.
No more than two tests are scheduled on the same day. The test scheduled last will be automatically dropped. Students, grades 6-8, must take home all administered and graded tests for parent/guardian signature and returned to the teacher the next school day.
Students with excused absences shall have the opportunity to complete missed class work and make up all tests receiving full credit. The student is responsible to arrange for the make-up.
Students who miss a test/quiz because of an unexcused absence will receive a failing grade on that test/quiz, except when the teacher decides to offer the chance for make-up.
If a student misses a test/quiz while on suspension, he/she will not have the opportunity to make up the test/quiz and will receive an “F”.
Acts of cheating or plagiarism will result in suspension and the student will receive an “F” (20/100) on the test or the assigned work.
The report card grades assigned to students are final. In the event a grade is in dispute, a student must petition the teacher and upon the approval and consent of the Principal, the grade may be adjusted.
