    GISD GRADING POLICY

    Make-up work: Students will be expected to complete daily make up work and major grades within 4 days per absence. For multiple absences, students are expected to contact me for due dates on make-up work. Students shall be expected to make up assignments and tests after absences.

    Students shall receive a zero for any assignment or test not made up within the allotted time. Within this framework, the maximum time allowed shall be determined at the discretion of this teacher according to the individual circumstances.

    For late assignments that are not considered make-up work, the following penalties apply upon returning to school:

    -10 for the first day

    -20 for the second day

    -30 for the third day

    0 on the fourth day

    Make-up tests: make-up testing will be done before or after school, or during the student’s lunch period. Students shall receive a zero for tests not made up within the allotted time (see above).

    Retesting

    Retesting is available to students that score a grade lower than 70 on a major unit exam. Retesting will not be available for semester exams or projects.

    Procedures: The student must notify me that he/she wishes to retest.

    Time frame: After a student receives notice of a failing test grade he/she has five (5) school days in which to complete a retest. It is the responsibility of the student to schedule a retest time with me.

    Dropping grades: I may drop one daily grade per nine weeks. This policy does not apply to test grades.
