**** Remember students must maintain an 88 average to remain in good standing.

**** All homework is due when class begins on the due date – no passes are given.

What if a student is at/lower than the 88?

If there is a problem with grades the first step will be to write a contract with the student outlining what the problem is and what strategies will be used to correct it.

If there is not an improvement in grades you will be called in and we will conference and decide whether this is the best placement for your student.

Missed lab/tests- quizzes
  • Arrangements for missed lab work must be done as soon as student returns to ensure materials are available.
  • Tests/quizzes will be made up the next day the student is in school.
The journal this year is key to everything we do – we will be connecting back to it with each activity. The first grade will be done by you and your student together!!
Edmodo – A blog for students to discuss science and such. The group will allow only the accelerated students to log in and they can use each other as resources.
