Zeros There will be no homework that will be given the grade of zero. The lowest grade that can be earned is a 50. This is a grading philosophy that will allow students to always be able to keep a satisfactory grade in my class. This does not apply to tests as a student should get more than a 50 on a test.
Make Up Any test can be retaken for a better grade. Make up tests are only offered in the mornings. A student can retake any test as many times as they want.
