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 project 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 NOT allowed in the classroom.
Students will have 4 hall passes each semester to be used at their discretion. If they have unused hall passes at the end of the semester they may turn those in for 5 extra credit points each.
