Grading / Homework Policy

The following is the weighted grading scale utilized within the 7th grade science department.
5%   Benchmark
40%   Assessments
30%   Class work / Labs
20%   Quizzes
5%   Homework
While the weighted total for homework is only 5%, the impact of that effort is magnified throughout the other
categories. The significance of the effort given to homework should not be underestimated.

Make-Up Work
A student is given two days to make up work for each day absent from school.
Teacher discretion will apply and override in any mitigating circumstance.
