Posting of Student Grades
Grades will be posted in the Parent Portal regularly. Please check student grades there on a regular basis. Please keep in mind that Google Classroom and ParentVUE are not linked. When students submit an assignment in Google Classroom, I have to go in and grade the submission before adding the grade into ParentVUE/StudentVUE.
Homework will be accepted up to 1 week before the end of the quarter. Math continues to build upon itself, so the practice gained from the homework is still worthwhile even if it is after the unit has ended. But please keep in mind that practice helps students gain mastery before the End of Unit Assessment. Additionally, late assignments are the last submissions to be graded. This means that grading of late assignments will not have as quick of a turnaround as current homework and grades.
In 6th grade, students are slowly becoming more responsible with an increase of course load and deeper material. With the larger weighting for assessments, students will be given the opportunity to improve poor test results through Test Corrections. To receive credit back from submitting Test Corrections ALL directions must be followed as stated in the assignment. They are due within 1 week of being assigned and all parts of the assignment must be completed correctly. If students require assistance in completing Test Corrections, they may schedule a time for Office Hours to get help.
There will not be any extra credit given in the course of the school year. Students are encouraged to stay current on all assigned work. If a student is seeking a way to improve their overall grade, all students are encouraged to complete Test Corrections for additional credit.
