Campus Grading Policy Supplemental to the Humble ISD Grading Policy
Rationale: SCHS administration supports a supplemental grading policy to the district’s existing
policy in order to create standards of consistency across all disciplines.
Timeline: The campus policy is effective throughout the 2013-2014 school year.
Review: A campus grading committee will be established to review the supplemental policy and
other grading issues that arise.
SCHS GRADING POLICY
A maximum of 1 reassessment will be offered, and the maximum grade on the reassessment will be an 85. Students must make corrections to original summative test and complete all formative assignments to be eligible for reassessment. Reassessments must be offered within 1 calendar week of the date in which the original graded assessment was returned. Students must make arrangements to attend the reassessment date set by the teacher if reassessment is done outside of school hours.
Late Work Policy
All Summer Creek High School teachers will utilize the following late work policy for all classes, regardless of level. This policy applies to formative assessments.
Late work will be accepted through the end of the week in which the assignment was due. If homework was due Friday, it will be accepted through Monday of the following week, or the first day of the school week.
The grade penalty for late work, regardless of the number of days late, is 25 points. Any work turned in after the Deadline Date will not be accepted.
N- Needs Improvement
Any student receiving a conduct grade of N or U must have documented disciplinary incidents and parents must be contacted by phone.
Some SCHS teachers assign homework that can be completed electronically via a web-based application. Since these assignments can be assigned and made due at any time on any day, students must stay aware of deadlines.
Due dates and times for online work are absolute and are determined by the teacher. It is expected that teachers communicate deadlines in class, in writing, and electronically as appropriate.
Assignment availability can be determined by the web-based application that the teacher is using. For example, an assignment may become available at 3:00 PM on Friday. It is expected that teachers communicate deadlines in class, in writing, and electronically as appropriate. Students are expected to complete online work and should not assume that they have extra time to do an assignment if they are absent on the day that the assignment “opens” or becomes available. If an assignment opens on Wednesday at noon, and the student is absent, the student will be expected to complete the assignment by the same deadline as the rest of the class. Students should make every effort to access the assignment via their own computer, phone, or a library computer.
Late work policies and penalties do apply to online work.
