3) All seventh graders will complete a Science Fair Project starting in the Fall and due in January.

late work policy

Late work is accepted from an excused absence with no penalty (excused absences would be illnesses, doctor’s appointments, etc.); one day absent equals one extra day to complete work.  

Late work policy for unexcused work is as follows: Work submitted 1 school-day late will receive one full letter grade reduction (ex: an A would become a B).  Work submitted 2 school-days late or more will receive reduced-credit only up to 70% (ex: an A  would become a 70% C- grade, but F quality work might get 50%). Late work is only accepted up to three weeks past the original due date.

Test Corrections

If you score a 69% or lower on a quiz or test, you can do test corrections to raise your grade up to C (75%) credit. Here's how:

1) Get a separate sheet of paper, and title it "Corrections";

2) For only the problems you missed, answer the question correctly;

3) Staple your corrections to the original quiz, and turn it in.

Students can do 2 test corrections per trimester.
