• Grading Policy - Civics
     

    No student is perfect and will happen to turn in assignments late. Each quarter you are allowed two late assignments without penalization (they do not carry over). After your excused late assignments are used then they will be penalized; this policy does not apply to excused school absences. In the case of excused school absences the school policy will be in effect (this policy can be found in the student handbook). Late assignments will be accepted until the end of the quarter it was assigned, after this it will no longer be accepted. Tests may be retaken based on teacher discretion and may not take the same format (for example it may just be an interview with the teacher). If you are granted a retake then you must submit a plan with dates on how you will better prepare for the retake (strategies they will use and such). A test retake may be done more than once but it is still by teacher discretion. The grading scale is as follows:

    [A = 90-100] [B = 80-89] [C= 70-79] [D= 60-69] [F= 59-Below]

     
     

    The types of assignments are as follows:

    ·       Class work [14%]

    ·       Homework [10%] 

    ·       Quizzes [16%]

    ·       Tests [20%]

    ·       Projects [25%]

    ·        Notebook checks/ Class participation [15%]
