If you miss one or more classes, you are responsible for speaking with Mrs. Wong about making up work. If you receive a grade you are unhappy with, you have 10 days to redo the assignment (from the date you received the graded rubric) and turn it in for a new grade. After the ten day “grace period”, the original grade will become final.
- Projects: 70%
- Homework: 15%
- Quizzes/Classwork: 15%
- If assignments are not turned in on the date they are due, 5 points will be deducted for each day after the due date the project is not turned in. If you have extenuating circumstances preventing you from turning in your assignment on time, I ask that you please speak to me (in person or by email) so that we can discuss the situation.
- Work that is not received at all will receive a grade of zero. All assignments should be submitted to Google Classroom on the due date.
Why Is My Grade Low?
- Not completing class assignments.
- Turning in work late.
- Poor work ethic.
Notes from the Student Handbook:
- Final Exams & Seniors: Students will take semester and final exams when scheduled to do so. Seniors may be exempt from the semester exams in January and May at the teachers’ discretion if the student achieved a minimum grade of an A- for the two quarters in the semester.
- Incompletes: A grade of Incomplete (I) will be given to a student who has unfinished course requirements because of extenuating factors such as protracted period(s) of illness. It is expected that the incomplete work be completed within ten (10) days after the close of a marking period; however, should a waiver be needed for extended time, the student should contact the Vice-Principal who will discuss the matter with the department head involved. If the work is not completed within the specified time (includes waiver where granted), the incomplete grade will become an F; otherwise the teacher will report a regular grade.
- Sports Eligibility: Natick High School requires that students receive a minimum passing grade of D- or above at the close of the marking period (end of each term) prior to the beginning of a season and during said season.
- Cell Phones: Natick Public Schools promotes the use of Technology as an effective environment for learning. However, given the degree to which unregulated use of cell phones and other personal electronic devices may interfere with teaching and learning the following regulations will apply. Cell phones and personal electronic devices other than a student’s assigned laptop must be turned off and not visible during the school day in classrooms, hallways during class time and all bathrooms. Cell phones may be used in the cafeteria, courtyard, library, and hallways during CDS and passing time.
