Grading

The way I figure your grade is simple; it is based on total points. The number of points you earn divided
by the total points possible equals your grade.
 Grading Scale:
o 90-100 = A
o 80-89 = B
o 70-79 = C
o 60-69 = D
o 59 or lower = F
In cases where students are caught cheating, in accordance with Mountainburg Public school policies,
any students caught cheating in any form may receive a “zero” for the assignment. The second offense
of cheating in the same class may result in an “F” for the semester.
Semester tests will be given and will count for 20% of the final semester grade.
Late work will receive a 20% reduction in total points earned. I encourage all students to turn in all
work, even if late. Some points are better than no points!
Attendance and Absences
For Excused Absences, the assignments the student missed during his/her absence will be labeled with
the student’s name and placed in the file holder on the wall for that student’s subject. It is your
responsibility to pick up your assignments from the file holder. You will have two days to complete the
assignment from the day you return. If more time is needed, that must be discussed with me the day
you return.
For Unexcused Absences, in accordance with Mountainburg Public Schools policies, work missed during
unexcused absences will not be permitted to be made up.
Absences due to a school function or on a day of review will not excuse you from tests or homework
upon your return.
For Absences on a Test Day, the student will take the test the day that he/she returns to school.
