  • One retake per quiz will be allowed in order to give students opportunities to show their mastery.

  • Before the retake:

    • a parent-student-teacher phone conference will take place to discuss why the student scored low and what the student plans to do to improve on the retake, and how to prevent a low score in the future.

    • the student will have to complete reflective quiz corrections to demonstrate that they’ve made a genuine effort to study.

  • Please note that the grade on the retake quiz will be the final grade.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY:

  • Cheating, copying, or helping someone without authorization will result in a ZERO with no opportunity to make-up work.

  • Unapproved translation programs, websites, and APPs (i.e. Google Translate) may not be used for any assignment. If a student is found to have used such an aide, he or she will earn a ZERO with no opportunity to make-up work.
