    Corrections:  Any daily assignment with a failing grade may be corrected up to a 70%.  You can correct the assignment with or without my assistance.  Directions for making corrections are on the front bulletin board.  Please come to tutoring for assistance.


    Daniels Dollars:  Each student will receive 6 Daniels Dollars at the beginning of each six weeks.  I will not give you an extra set if they are lost or stolen, so be careful!  The dollars can be used to go to your locker/library, borrow supplies, etc.  If you misbehave, you will lose money.  Daniels Dollars may not be shared among students.  If you have at least 4 Daniels Dollars at the end of the six weeks, you will be eligible for the incentive/reward (non-academic).

    Daily work (quizzes, assignments, etc.) = 40%

    ·        1 Day Late – 15 points deducted

    ·        2 Days Late – 30 points deducted

    ·        3 Days Late – 40 points deducted


    Reteach/Redo:  If you make a failing grade on a major assessment, you can attend tutorials within 3 days of the grade being posted to Family Access in order to relearn the material.  Then you can retake the assessment and earn a grade up to 70%.  If you make a grade between 70-84% on an assessment, you can attend tutorials to relearn the material and retake the assessment for a grade up to 85%.
