Trimester grade composition:  The semester grade will be calculated as follows:  80% term grade and 20% term exam.  A student who does not meet the attendance requirement (no more than 6 absences) must earn a 77% on the term exam to earn the credit. 

Make-up work:  The school policy for absences will be followed.  When a student misses a day of school they have one day to make the work up.  It will be the responsibility of the student to collect missed work.  If a student collects their work in advance of an absence then it should be completed upon return to school. 



Extra Credit:  No extra credit assignments will be given.
