If a student does not have their assignment on the due date, he/she must write the reason that they did not complete their assignment.  The student must get a parent’s signature, notifying them that the assignment is missing and the reason for not completing the assignment.  All students are encouraged to and expected to submit their assignments on time.  I understand that unexpected situations may arise, in which we may not be able to control. For example, In the case of a student’s illness, the student will have as many days as they were sick to complete the assignments that they missed. Students who are absent are responsible for finding out what work/assignments they missed.  In addition, all homework assignments are posted daily on our schools webpage, Mcdadeclassical.org.

Grading Weight:

5% class participation + 15% Homework + 35% Assignments + 20% Quizzes + 25% Test/Exams = 100%
