Student work and final grades will be evaluated within these categories:
Assessments (quizzes, tests)
Student work will be assigned throughout the week and due dates will be posted.
Students will write in their planners the activities for each day and include all due dates within the planner.
Students will track when assignments have been turned in within their planners as well.
Students will be responsible to get their planners signed by a parent or guardian on the last school evening of the week (typically on Thursday evening).
Completed/graded student work will be kept in individual student folders within the classroom throughout each trimester.
This allows students to add specific work to Student Portfolios which are kept throughout their secondary education career. Student Portfolios are presented at our Student-Led Conferences in March.
Keeping work in the classroom also assists with student evaluations of work along with helping to settle grading disputes/questions.
Students will clean out classroom folders after each trimester by either adding work to SLC Portfolio or bringing work home.
