If you miss a test, quiz, or project, you must make it up within 3 days of your return.
I will send missed assessments to the Learning Lab. You will be called down to arrange a time to make up the assessment in the LL with the proctor there. Missed projects must be turned in upon your return to school.
Missed homework assignments do not count for, or against, the student. If a student misses a day when I give an assignment and then is there when we review it, I will not give him or her credit for the assignment (nor will he or she be penalized for the assignment). If a student misses a day when I check an assignment, I will not check it at a later date. Again, there is no penalty for that assignment. It will be left blank in the gradebook, having no effect on the grade. Having a student interrupt a lesson to show me an assignment that was checked during his or her absence is disruptive. The assignments are to help students learn, and it is to their overall benefit to complete the assignments. Remember, each homework is worth just 3 points, so it will not make or break a student's grade when left blank in the grade book.
*If an assessment is announced when a student is in class and then that student misses a day of review, he or she is expected to take the assignment with the rest of the class if that is the day upon which he or she returns. The 3 day rule does not apply if the student has only missed review and is in class the day of the assessment. If the student misses both a review day and the day of the assessment, the 3 day rule does apply.
If new material IS discussed during the student's absence , he or she needs to take responsibility for asking either the teacher or a classmate what material they missed while absent, and will then be expected to make up the assessment by his or her third day back in school.
