MAKE-UP WORK POLICY:

All students are provided an opportunity to make up missed assignments, regardless of the reason for the absences.  It is the student’s and parents’ responsibility to make arrangements and/or complete all work within three school days of the student’s return to school.  Students will present the make-up work to the teacher for grading.  Grading for the make-up work should be shared with the student within a reasonable period of time, i.e. 3-5 days.  It is the parent and student’s responsibility to initiate the make-up work for missed assignments, tests, and class work.  Students must assume responsibility for obtaining the required information and making whatever arrangements are necessary with the teacher.  Parents should assist their child with requests for make-up work and other missed assignments and tests.  

 

Students may arrange times with the teacher for making up work for the mutual convenience of student and teacher.  Make-up of tests and quizzes should be done before or after school except as otherwise arranged by the teacher.  Teachers may assign different work or a different test than that which was originally assigned to other students.  It is critical that parents remain involved in this process to ensure academic success for the student.  Long-term assignments with preset dates are due on the assigned dates regardless of a student’s previous absence.

 

MAKE-UP WORK GRADING POLICY:

The highest grade achievable for make-up work received after three days of the student’s return to school is 70%.
