    1. Late or Missed Assignments – If an assignment is not passed in on the due date:
      1. A mark of 0% will be put in as a placeholder in PowerSchool until it is passed in
      2. If it is not passed in, the 0% will remain
      3. Teachers will contact home about late or missed assignments
      4. If a student is absent for an in-class assignment, Parent/Guardian is expected to provide a written reason for the absence

    2. Missed Assessments – If a student is absent for an assessment (test or quiz):
      1. Parent/Guardian is expected provide a written reason for the absence
      2. The student and Parent/Guardian will be given another date when the student will rewrite the assessment

    3. Academic Dishonesty
      1. If a student is found guilty of academic dishonesty (cheating) during an assessment (test or quiz):
        1. Teacher will inform the student
        2. Teacher will inform the administration first and then the parents
        3. Upon discussion with the teacher, the assessment may be re-administered, but will be marked at 80% rather than 100%
        4. If the assessment is not re-administered, then 0% will be recorded for the given assessment
      2. If a student is found guilty of plagiarism (copying another’s work without giving them credit), the following steps will be initiated:
        1. Teacher will inform the student
        2. Teacher will inform the administration first and then the parents
        3. Teacher will use 0% as a placeholder in PowerSchool.
        4. Student will be allowed to complete work again in a reasonable and agreed-upon time

    4. Second Chance Opportunities
      1. Individual departments may provide the opportunity for recovery assessments or makeup tests
      2. Students who have not passed in work will be given an opportunity to complete this work during our Catch-up days (three scheduled days throughout the year where the administration team and other teachers are available to help students complete missed work)
