    Grades
    A teacher has the responsibility to not accept assignments from students that do not meet minimal standards of completion.

    Assignments not completed/turned in by the end of a unit or exceed two weeks from the date of the assignment (teacher discretion) will remain/be entered as a zero in the grade book.
    All grades are updated weekly in Synergy. The link can be found on teacher webpages and in CANVAS.
    This course will be graded on a Pass/No Pass basis. Any average of 60.0% or higher will be considered a grade of pass.


    Cheating/Plagiarism
    District Code of Conduct will be followed. A link to the code of conduct is below. http://www.husd.org/cms/lib08/AZ01001450/Centricity/Domain/740/CodeofConduct.pdf


    Absence Policy
    Students will have 1 day, for each day of absence, to make up the work missed. It is the
    student’s responsibility to check the “Assignment Calendar” in CANVAS and turn the
    completed assignments in to the teacher.


    Tardy Policy
    You are expected to be in your seat ready to work when the bell rings. All materials should
    be ready at the start of the period. If you are running late from another class, you must have
    a pass.


    Retakes
