Grading Scale and Requirements for Promotion
INCOMPLETES will not be given. If a student has missed an assignment due to an excused absence, the grade of zero will be averaged in the place of that grade until the student makes up the work within a prescribed length of time.
All pre-assigned work will be due on the day of a student’s return from an absence. Students will be given five (5) days to make up work or follow other arrangements granted by the teacher. Incomplete work carried over into a new grading period due to extenuating circumstances should be completed no later than the tenth day of the following semester.
