Class Work Missed During Absences
It is the student's responsibility to consult with his/her teacher(s) regarding missed work. Teachers will determine make-up work and deadlines, taking into consideration the cause and length of the absence. Students with an excused absence will be provided an opportunity to make-up missed work. Make-up work for a student with an unexcused absence is left to the teacher’s discretion.
Routine and In-Depth Makeup Work Assignments
A student will be permitted to make up tests and to turn in projects in any class missed because of excused absences. Secondary teachers may assign a late penalty to any project in accordance with time lines approved by the principal and previously communicated to students. A student will be responsible for obtaining and completing the makeup work in a satisfactory manner and within the time specified by the teacher.
A student who does not make up assigned work within the time allotted by the teacher may receive a grade of zero for the assignment.
Disciplinary Alternative Education Program (DAEP) or In-School Suspension Makeup Work
A student removed to a disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP) during the school year will have an opportunity to complete coursework needed to fulfill the student’s high school graduation requirements before the beginning of the next school year. The District may provide the opportunity to complete the coursework through any method available, including a correspondence course, distance learning, or summer school. The District will not charge the student for any method of completion provided by the District. A student removed from the regular classroom to in-school suspension or another setting, other than a DAEP, will have an opportunity to complete before the beginning of the next school year each course the student was enrolled in at the time of removal from the regular classroom. The District may provide the opportunity by any method available, including a correspondence course, distance learning, or summer school. Students and their parents are encouraged to discuss options with the teacher or counselor to ensure the student completes all work required for the course or grade level.
