    Grades

    Students will be given daily credit after each class according to the following:

    • Updating weekly planners with details of activities and expectations in each of their classes
    • The planner will include the names of courses, homework, tests and projects due.
    • Students must be 'on task' from bell to bell, to earn the 100 points awarded daily.
    • 'On Task' behaviors include attending to teacher instruction and attention to assignments and projects.
    • Student will maintain respectful behaviors in order to  receive credit. 

     In order to determine the final grade, the number of points will be divided by the number of points possible.  There will be no chance for make-up work in this course as it pertains to being on task and coming prepared.  In the event of excused absence, the student will be excused for the daily credit of those dates.  Attendance is important and good attendance leads to good grades.  Grades are determined as follows:
