Late Work Policy

Late work will be accepted up to one week after the due date.

If an assignment is one day late, 10% credit will be removed from that grade.

If an assignment is two days late, 20% credit will be removed from that grade.

If an assignment is three days late, 30% credit will be removed from that grade.

If an assignment is more than three days late, only 50% credit will be given for that assignment.

Revisions

Revisions are allowed. If we do not constantly revisit our work, we cannot learn and grow.

Revisions are allowed for writing throughout the semester for full credit.

Revisions are allowed for any other assignment that receives 70% or lower as a grade.

The teacher can decide if an assignment is not up for revision. Students should ask to review assignments with teachers before starting a revision. Revisions on assignments are only allowed once.
