    Unit Tests





    It is important that students are responsible and meet established due dates for assignments. Late is defined as anytime work is submitted after the assignment has already been collected by the teacher.


    Students with an excused absence will be expected to submit missed work on or before the third class meeting after the absence. Pre-announced assignments are due upon return to school.

    School-wide Expectations:



    With mastery learning, a unit of material is taught, and student understanding is evaluated before students are able to move on to the next unit. Students who have not shown mastery for a particular unit will receive feedback and support in reaching mastery. They may be given practice exercises, study guides, group work or complementary resources to help them improve and achieve mastery. Students who demonstrate mastery of the content for a particular unit are given enrichment exercises like special projects, tasks or academic games to further or broaden their knowledge of the material.


    Parents and guardians are informed when students are making unsatisfactory progress in classes. Poor performance will be reported to parents and guardians as soon as problems are evident. Deficiency reports with plans for remediation will be written for all students making unsatisfactory progress, and parent/guardians conferences must be scheduled. Unsatisfactory grades should never come as a surprise to parents, guardians, or students.

    Teachers will:

    • Contact parents and guardians early in the semester if academic, attendance, or behavioral difficulties are apparent.
    • Notify the counselor, SST/RTI Chair, and the academy leader of serious problems that are affecting classroom performance.


    Students wanting to participate in athletic programs governed by the GHSA and extracurricular activities must meet eligibility requirements to participate. The Athletic Director (and the Extracurricular Activities sponsors) will collaborate with teachers to monitor and to identify students in danger of failing courses. All faculty members will be given a master list of students participating in extracurricular activities and athletics under the auspices of the GHSA.
