• Second Chance Learning

    Re-dos and Retakes

     

     

    Second chance learning is a strategy which provides additional opportunities to learn and demonstrate what a student knows and can do when assessments indicate that the essential knowledge or skills have not been demonstrated.   The intent is for students to master the content. Every effort will be made to allow students the opportunity to demonstrate their understanding of the concepts and skills of this class.

     

    Second Chance Learning:

    • Students will have the opportunity to redo/retake assessments up to two times within two weeks of the posted grade
    • Opportunities to redo/retake assignments are at the teacher’s discretion
    • Redo/retake grade will take the place of the original grade unless it is lower (no averaging of scores)
    • In order to identify gaps in learning, students MUST return a completed redo/retake reflection form
    • Alternative practice work or assessments may be given that will cover the same material but may be in a different format
    • Redo and retakes will not be given during the student’s regular class period, specific retake dates will be determined by the teacher
    • Redo and retakes are not meant to be used as a regular practice by a student or as a substitute for effort
    • Students are NOT eligible for a retake until all missing work related to the unit has been submitted
    • All redo and retakes must be completed within two weeks of the grade posting date
