Any student who is unsuccessful (grade below 70) on a daily or major assignment will have one reasonable opportunity as determined by the teacher to redo or retake the assignment in order to show mastery of the material. The “redo” or “retake” assignment will be determined by the teacher and may not be the exact same assignment that was initially assigned, but rather a variation of the initial assignment that will allow the student to show mastery of the content. The student should have the time to participate in a relearning activity either directed by the teacher or self directed study prior to the retake opportunity. All “redo” or “retake” opportunities must be completed in a timely manner as determined by the teacher with all grades completed and recorded by the end of the six weeks. Teachers within the department will work together to develop a plan where a reasonable number and various opportunities are provided. For example, if three opportunities are given, all three should not be before school opportunities. Each student will have a maximum of five (5) school days to “redo” or “retake” the assignment from the day that they were notified of the grade. For example, a student who is notified of grade on Monday will have until the end of day on the following Monday to complete the “retake.”
Students who participate in the retake opportunity will receive the replacement grade with a ceiling of 70. (Example 1: First grade 50, Second grade 60, student will receive 60. Example 2: First grade 50, Second grade 80, student will receive 70.)
Students who receive a grade deduction or a zero on an assignment due to the student code of conduct are not eligible for the “redo” or the “retake” opportunity.
