Late work & Extra Credit You are responsible for all material presented in class. Even if you have extra-curricular activities, you are still responsible for completing and turning in assignments when they are due. You will be given until midnight that same day to e-mail the assignment. After that the assignment is half credit off. It is your responsibility to ask for missing assignments and/or to visit http://ww2.chandler.k12.az.us/Page/6840 to download missing assignments. Late work is half credit off. All assignments are due at the beginning of the class period. It is your responsibility to print essays or have assignments ready before the class period begins. If you have a serious extenuating circumstance, speak with me as soon as possible. Waiting until the class period when something is due is not acceptable. Extra credit is rarely offered in AVID if at all.
