Course Expectations and Assessments

Course Policies 

        Homework will be assigned on a regular basis. All assignments will be listed on Power School. Students are expected to complete their homework before the beginning of class. Students who do not complete ALL of their homework for that unit are not eligible to retake a test.

A test may be retaken one time before the next primary assignment is given. The higher score will be used. Students must inform Mrs. Fayer that they would like to retake the test and set up a time when the test may be retaken.

Work assigned prior to and due on the day of a one-day absence is due on the day of return. Students will be given the same number of days to complete and turn in work as the number of days missed.
