You will be allowed to drop your lowest homework grade and your lowest quiz grade each test period.
Make-up work may be allowed. You must submit a petition request form, with excuse and supporting documents attached, within two days of missed work.
Everyone will be allowed to replace his or her lowest test grade with the grade made on the final exam.
If a test is missed due to a serious, verifiable circumstance, the zero test grade can also be replaced with the final exam grade. This will only be done if a petition request form is filed within 2 days at 345 Gordon Palmer, and if the petition request panel approves the excuse.
