Mrs. Chandler's Grading Policy
Absent students have the same number of days they were absent to make-up work the missed (see school disclosure) It is the student’s responsibility to remember to check my website or talk to me and gather the worksheets/work from the day(s) missed when they return from an absence 2 days or less. Teachers do not collect work for students unless they are gone for 3 or more days and have an Educational Leave packet (see school disclosure) When you do turn in your absent work write “ABSENT” on the top of the paper so I can double check your absence on my records and not take off late points. If you need help I stay after school every day until 3pm and can stay later upon request.
To Stay on top of your assignments:
- Check the “no name” box is you think you turned in an assignment and it’s not showing up in skyward.
- Check skyward at least once a week to keep track of you grades.
- Check my blog: http://chandlersutah.weebly.com
- Our school policy is that grades will be updated once a week. I grade late work and update grades generally on Monday, except right after the late work deadline. Due to the large amount of late work turned in this week, it will take longer for assignments to be graded at this time.
I will always accept late work. The longer it takes for a student to turn in the work, the less credit they will get. If an assignment from the beginning of the quarter is turned in at the end of the quarter the highest grade achievable is 60%.
If a student is caught working on outside assignments or homework during classes (for mine or others), they will receive a 0 for that assignment and it cannot be made up. These assignments are meant to be done during the appropriate time or as homework.
Late Work Deadline:
There will be one deadline at the end of each quarter to turn in late work for this class. This includes ALL late work, absent work, missing assignments, redo’s and make-ups.This is a strict deadline. Please realize that you must be responsible for remembering what you turn in during the week leading up to the deadline as teachers cannot grade each late assignment as you turn it in. Check skyward often. If you are missing an assignment and THINK you turned it in, make sure to double check the in-box and no-name box and clear all matters up with me before this date. If you will be absent on the deadline, please come and talk to me about turning in assignments. I will not accept any work past the deadline unless you were absent on the deadline date, in which case your work will be due the day you return as long as it is before the quarter ends.
1st Quarter: Oct. 24th
2nd Quarter: Jan. 16th
3rd Quarter: Mar. 21st
4th Quarter: May 30th
Students can retake quizzes and tests they have failed through Rise and Stretch (R&S) during school. If you would like to retake a test outside of R&S, you MUST study first! You can show me a study sheet or tell me what you studied (I will ask you a couple questions to verify that you have) you can come and do so after school. Please let me know that you are coming in so I can make sure to be in my room.
Grade Break Down:
Assessments = 60%
Assignments = 35%
Newsdays = 5%
I want you to be proficient in the material we are working on in class, so if you would like extra help on any of these subjects, I will be available after school until 3:00 and before school starting at 7:00. If you need more help than that, please let me know, and we can schedule a day for us to work on concepts together.
