Late Work, Correction, Retest, and Extra Credit Policies

Late Work Policy
Students are required to submit assignments to their teachers on or before the assigned due date.
 
In level courses, late work will only be accepted up to three school days after the assigned due date. The assignment will be accepted and graded, but 10 points will be deducted from the earned grade for each school day it is late. For example, if a student turns in an assignment two school days late and earns an 85 on the assignment, the recorded grade will be 85 - 20 (two school days late) = 65. If the assignment is not turned in within three school days of the due date, a 0 will be recorded for the assignment.
 
In Pre-AP courses and High School Credit courses, late work will only be accepted for up to three school days after the assigned due date. The assignment will be accepted and graded, but 10 points will be deducted from the earned grade for each school day it is late. For example, if a student turns in an assignment two school days late and earns an 85 on the assignment, the recorded grade will be 85 - 20 (two school days late) = 65. If the assignment is not turned in within three school days of the due date, a 0 will be recorded for the assignment.
 
 
Correction Policy
Students may correct any failing daily assignments. Corrections must be done on a separate sheet of notebook paper in pencil with all work shown to prove the answers. The corrections must be stapled to the original assignment and turned in within 3 days of receiving the graded assignment back. Students will receive half credit back for each correctly proven answer.
 
Retesting Policy
If a student earns below 70% on a test, the student will have an opportunity to retest. The student must attend a minimum of 30 minutes of tutorials with Ms. De La Garza before being allowed to retest. The student will be retested with a different test covering the same knowledge/skills. The maximum score on a retest is 70%. The tutorial session and retest must take place within one week of the failing grade being posted.
 
Completing test corrections for the original test will not be used for a test grade or retest grade credit.
