Grading and Homework Policy

  • Per district policy, the following grading scale is used:

    90-100 - A
    80-89 - B
    70-79 - C
    0-69 - Failing

    The Humble Independent School District affirms its stand on academic emphasis in the grading procedures. The actual grade reflecting the student’s relative mastery of an assignment will be recorded and averaged to determine the six/nine week grades. The report card denotes progress. Below level and/or modifications in the academic program are noted on the card.
    Late Work Policy
    Late Work - (work not turned in by due date / period) - Any assignment not submitted upon the teacher's request will be considered late work.
    Make up Work -(work missed due to student's excused absence) All make up work will receive one day of make-up time for each day of absence. A maximum of five days will be allowed. A zero will be given for work that has been required by the teacher and has not been turned in by the due date/ period.
    Make up Policy
    Students are expected to make up work missed while they were absent. They will be given full credit for work done that satisfies the conditions of the district policy for make-up work.  Immediately upon returning to school, the student must contact teachers concerning arrangements for making up work.  A zero will be given for work that has been required by the teacher and has not met guidelines for make-up work.  After the student has been absent for three days, the parent/guardian may request make-up work through the Counselor's Office. 

    When an absence occurs, it is the student’s responsibility to inquire about, complete, and return assignments.  Students should expect to do more paperwork than those who were in attendance because it is necessary to make up for classroom experiences missed.  The following is offered as a timeline for make-up work.

    • 1 day absence     day following return to school
    • 2 day absence     2 days after return to school
    • 3 day absence     3 days after return to school
    • 4 day absence     4 days after return to school
    • 5 day absence     5 days after return to school

    Students absent more than five (5) days must make arrangements with their teachers for making up the work missed within one week (5 school days) after their return to school.  Late work guidelines also apply to make-up work.

    When in-school suspension or discipline program assignments have been given a predetermined date, no extra days are given for make-up work.  If students are absent on a predetermined due date, the material is due the day the student returns to school.
