A grade of zero will be entered for missing work until the work is turned in. Late work can be accepted under certain circumstances. Depending on how you communicate with your teacher this may or may not involve a penalty to your grade. Please read this document thoroughly so that you know what to do if your work is late.
If an assignment is for at-home practice and is designated as homework then its purpose is to prepare you for class. As such, the grade for the assignment reflects preparedness and not competence. The homework does not have to be correct: we will correct it together in class. If the homework assignment is not done at the beginning of the class in which it is due, then the assignment will be given a zero. Late homework is not accepted.
To encourage you to engage in learning the material, however, you may earn 75% for the assignment by coming to AEAST to finish it with me. If you start the homework during AEAST and finish it at the latest by the following day then you can earn this partial credit grade. You must ask me a question or otherwise seek help during this time to earn the make-up grade.
Late written work or designated lab assignments will not be accepted late without prior notice unless you have a face-to-face conversation with your teacher. If you do so, and your teacher gives you permission, then you have up to a week after the due date to turn in your work. There will be a 15 point penalty for late work.
If you know you will not be able to complete an assignment on time then speak with your teacher at least one full day before the due date. If it is after school hours, send an email. Make sure to explain the circumstances that prevent you from completing the work on time. By taking the time to communicate your needs you may get a small extension on the due date without a penalty, depending on the assignment and your teacher’s discretion.
It is your responsility to find out what you missed. This can best be accomplished using a two-step process: 1. Check Google Classroom and 2. Talk to your Teacher.
Any assignment due on a day when you were out is due upon your return to class unless there are mitigating circumstances. The above late policies will apply. If you miss one day, you have one day to make up missed work. If you miss two days, you have two days to make up the work, etc. If you do not meet these updated due dates then the work will be considered late in accordance with the policies given above. If the assignment given during your absence has a due date in the future that due date will not be changed.
