Policies & Course Documents
Refer to the syllabus for the course description and policies on grading, make-up work, extra credit, and other important information. You should keep a copy of this in your English binder for reference.
Question About Your Grades?
I encourage you to check Gradeline frequently for the most current grades. If a grade column is blank or has a "?", then I have not entered grades for that assignment yet; there is nothing you need to do at this point. A "Z" instead of a grade indicates the assignment is missing due to an absence and can be made up according to the make up work policy; this will average into your grade as a zero until the new grade is entered. A "NG" indicates you are exempt from the assignment; exemptions are rarely given. If you have a question about your grade, please talk to me about it either before or after class or email me.
If you were absent from class, please check the Daily Agenda page for the activities and assignments you missed. You may also check the Assignment Notebook in class upon your return. It is your responsibility to check to see what work you have missed during your absence and to check when you may make up quizzes or tests; you may be required to come before school to take any missed quizzes and/or tests. All make-up work is due on the 3rd day back to school. Work assigned or tests announced before the absence must be made up the 1st day back to school. Students cannot makeup assignments, tests, or quizzes missed during an unexcused absence. If you do not complete missing work within the appropriate time frame, you will be given a zero on the assignment.
