Late Work Procedure:  Late work will be accepted one week after the due date and assessed a penalty of 20 points. All extended projects will be graded based on the guidelines in the grading rubric for each project. If a student is present in class, but chooses not to complete an assignment, the ability to earn partial credit will be determined after a discussion with the student, a coach, case manager, or a parent.   


Make Up Work Procedure:  If a student must be absent, it is his/her responsibility to obtain make-up work and complete it in a reasonable amount of time, with a minimum of 3 days for each day absent.  If a student needs to make up an assignment that must be completed in the classroom, they should come before school, during homeroom, or during connections break. 


Homework:  Homework is assigned daily and will be written in the student’s agenda.
