After 3 days, the homework will not be accepted.  Projects will not be accepted late. Please refer to guidelines in Student Handbook.

Failing Assignments:

Per Policy: Any assignment failed, you must have the opportunity to bring the failing grade up to a maximum of a 70. If you fail a homework or daily assignment, it is your (student) responsibility to come see me about an alternate assignment by the end of the class period so I can arrange the alternate assignment for you. The grade you make on the alternate assignment is the final grade for the assignment. If you fail a test (not a six weeks test or a project), then you must attend tutorials with me to help you with your corrections before the day of the re-test. A re-test will be given on an announced day.  If the student does not come in for tutorials and/or make the necessary corrections, they will not be allowed to retake the test. Re-tests are given before/after school ONLY.
