  • ***Our unit packets will be checked for each lesson and the lesson checks will be posted in the gradebook as excluded grades. In other words, the checks will not count as grades in the gradebook, but will serve as a way to keep parents up to date on their student's progress in the packet. The packet will be graded as an intermediate grade once it is turned in on test day.

  • ***The corrections policy has slightly changed for the 4th quarter. Students may only correct a failing quiz/test grade for half-credit back up to a 70. Students can no longer correct passing grades.
