Grading Policy: Grades are determined by tests and daily grades. Each test and assignment is given a worth number of points. Try to get as many points possible. To find your percent grade, divide total number of points earned by total possible points, then multiply by 100.

Example: A test grade is worth 50 points and a student scores 40 points.

The percent grade is 80%.

40 / 50 = 0.80

.80 x 100 = 80%

Attendance Policy: Student can only miss two consecutive absences per semester. Attendance is required and graded in each class the students registers for the semester.
