Accelerated American Literature 3-4
Homework, Late Work, Quiz Make-Ups and Revised Work Policies
CHECK SYNERGY FOR ASSIGNMENTS AND DUE DATES
Most homework is a preparation for class so:
You are eligible for full credit on homework that is ready at the beginning of class on the day it is due.
Exception: You may turn in written work that is not to be revised or worked on in class by the end of the day it is due.
Most homework is worth a maximum of 50% the next day. So, work that would be a 10/10 will be at best 5/10 if late.
You have the same number of days to make up work as you have officially excused illness days. I will go by Synergy which clearly shows excused absences. I treat unexcused absences the same as skips and will penalize late work due to unexcused absences as above.
Quizzes: You may only make these up for days with excused absences and must do so by the end of the first FLEX period after your excused absence.
