ATTENDANCE & GRADING POLICY
Choir is a performance-based class. Students earn grades by performing in rehearsals as well as concerts. Students will earn grades in the following areas.
Daily Performance: students have their chorus folder, a pencil, are actively performing in class activities such as completing theory assignments, performing in warm ups/sight reading, and actively performing in rehearsal. Students will receive a daily participation grade every two weeks.
Concerts: based on attendance and appropriate and respectful participation. Missed concerts without prior notice will only be excused in the face of an emergency with proper documentation. Students with excused absences will be allowed to make up points at a later date.
· Excused absences include (but are not limited to): student illness, family wedding/funeral, and religious observance.
· Unexcused absences include (but are not limited to): doctor’s appointment, lack of transportation, music lesson, and sport practice.
