    Retake Policy

    All homework for the learning target must be completed before the first assessment before a retake will be given.  Students need to try their best the first time in order to earn a retake.  If a student scores less than a 3, they must earn a retake first.  Earning a retake involves working with the teacher or another adult in the building who can help them understand the material.  This may be making corrections on the original assessment or doing extra practice.  If a student desires a retake, they have 1 week to initiate the retake process.  They cannot wait until the end of the quarter/semester to retake assessments.

    Grading

    Homework is not graded, however, practice is an important part of learning and homework must be completed in order to earn a retake.  Only assessments (tests and quizzes) count toward the students grade.  We may assess a learning target multiple times, but there will only be one score for a learning target.
