Failing Major Assignments and Retake Policy
Exams: Only exams scoring below a 80 will be able to be retaken. Re-teaching for exams is done in class 1-3 days after the exam is taken. Only 1 exam per six weeks may be retaken. The original grade and the retake grade will be averaged together for a final exam grade with a maximum grade of a 80 possible. Exam retakes will be scheduled before or after school on designated days. Retake days will be posted in class. Be prepared for a difficult retake exam since you have had more time to study - it is best to pass the exam the first time!

There are no retakes offered for Quizzes, Labs and Projects.
