    Grading policy/assignment policies

    The grading scale is posted in the student handbook. A student will pass with a grade of at least a D-.  

     

    Late Work Policy:

    The policy regarding late work is as follows: students lose 10% for each late assignment, per day. For example, if a project is worth 100 points and is due Monday but is turned in on Wednesday, it will automatically lose 20 points off the grade. Thus, if the paper earns a B (85/100), it will actually accrue 65 points.

    According to the Arlee High School student handbook, if work is assigned on a day when a student is absent (excused), the student will have that day plus a day to make up the work without penalty. If the assignment is given before the student is absent, the work is due on its normal due date as long as the student is present that day. Students do not receive extra days to turn in work they knew about prior to an absence.

     

    Student Expectations Professionalism and Conduct

    Students are expected to behave responsibly and respectfully and to take their learning seriously. All students will arrive to class on time and prepared with their materials.  This includes their Chromebooks being fully charged the night before. Personal digital devices are allowed in the classroom as learning tools. Should they become a distraction (watching videos, playing games, texting, listening to music instead of classmates or the teacher) the student will be asked to turn the device off. Further requests may result in major referrals, following the high school handbook guidelines.
