GMS Grading Policy
Students are encouraged to turn work in on time. Having work finished when it is due has many benefits. You don't fall further behind, you are prepared for class discussions and activities and you are ready and prepared for tests and quizzes when your work is completed by the assigned due date. In the event that work is not turned in on time, there will be a penalty:
Work turned in late will receive 5 points off per day with a maximum of 20 points off. If it is not turned in after 4 days the MSG in the grade book will be changed to a 0.
I reserve the right to suspend the late work policy on certain projects and activities when completion is critical by a certain time. I will inform students of this at the time the assignment assignment is made.
Students will be given the opportunity to improve/re-do failing grades on tests and assignments when they receive a score lower than 70. The maximum score on this redone work is a 70. Students may be required to attend tutoring or complete additional review activities before being allowed to retake a test.
Students who fail a six weeks will be assigned tutoring / intervention the following six weeks.
Cheating can include copying answers, allowing someone to copy your answers, plagiarism, using unauthorized sources on a test/quiz, or having someone else complete an assignment for you.
1st offense: You will be given an alternate assignment, your parents will be notified and you will be assigned a detention. The alternate assignment will have a maximum value of a 70.
2nd offense: You will be given an alternate assignment, your parents will be notified and you will receive an office referral. The alternate assignment will have a maximum value of 70.
