Excused absences from a rehearsal or performance include:
1. Extreme personal illness (with immediate notification to a Director from a parent/guardian)
2. A death in the family
3. Religious holidays
4. Pre-excused with the directors for extenuating circumstances
UNEXCUSED ABSENCES FROM REHEARSALS: Any student receiving an unexcused absence from rehearsal will receive a zero for that rehearsal grade. An unexcused absence may result in the student being placed on alternate status and/or being temporarily or permanently removed from the program. Please understand that full attendance is needed to make rehearsals work.
Grading Procedures For All Bands
Grading percentages will be based on Westside policies established for the school year. Assignments and tests will be divided into “major” (70%) and “minor” (30%) grades. Grades will be posted in GradeSpeed and a performance rubric is provided in the appendix.
