All classroom work turned in past the due date is only eligible for 50% credit for two weeks past the due date. After that two week period, and up to the end of the quarter, an assignment may be turned in, but will only be worth 1 point.
For example, an assignment is due on March 5 and is turned in March 7, the HIGHEST possible grade for that assignment is 50% of the designated points. If that same assignment is not turned in until May 21, the HIGHEST possible grade for that assignment is 1 point of the designated points.
Exceptions to this policy will be made for students who have a formal plan (IEP, 504, etc.) that specifies allowances for flexible work completion dates or if a special circumstance exists that the parent or guardian of the student has communicated to the teacher (i.e. death in the family).
We will continue to follow our established policy for students who are ill on the day an assignment is due. That policy is that the student will be allowed one extra day for each day sick to complete and turn in that work. So, if a student misses 2 days of school due to illness, he/she will be allowed 2 extra days to complete and turn in the work missed.
