Grading Policies and Homework Policies
Formative grades are worth 50% and summative grades are worth 50%
Formative grades include warm ups, daily work, homework, notes & journal writing. Students will be given work daily and anything that is not completed in class will be automatic homework.
Summative grades include all quizzes, tests, unit common assessments and projects.
If classwork is not finished in class, it is considered homework. Students write in their planners when they enter class, please check your child's planner daily.
Late work is defined as any assignment that is not submitted on the due date and class period. All late work will only be accepted within 3 school days. A 10 point deduction will be taken from the grade each day it is late but will not exceed 30 points for being late.
Absent / Make up work:
The student will be allowed two school days for every day of class missed. If students do not complete make up work in the time allotted, the late policy will apply.
1. All students’ grades will be posted on TX Connect, accessible only with a user id and password.
2. You may Access TX Connect through the District website or download the app Parent Portal.
3. The school will hand out progress reports every 3 weeks.
Parents/Guardians, please give me your email address. I have found that it is much easier and productive to communicate this way. firstname.lastname@example.org
