Grading, Late Work, and Make-up Work
Grading: At least 2 grades will be recorded each week of the six weeks. Of those grades, at least 3 will be test grades.
Make-up Work: Make-up work will be due according to the number of days missed. For example, a student absent for 3 days would be given 3 days to complete make-up work. Note: This does not apply to vocabulary.com assignments or college work .
Missing Grades: All missing grades, regardless of the reason (i.e. extracurricular, absence, etc.), will show as "0" in the computer gradebook until turned in.
No Zero Policy: See Detroit High School and Middle School Policy on Zeros Click Here to view policy. Note: This does not apply to vocabulary.com assignments, college prep work, or college work.
DHS Student Success Policy: Any student scoring less than 70% on an assignment has one of the following options to bring up the grade:
Correct the assignment/test with documentation (i.e. page number of text, information from notes, website, etc.) and turn it in for re-grading.
Attend tutoring or Success Lab and get help with the assignment. Note: The Success Lab teacher must sign your paper to show you attended. Then re-submit the paper for regrading.
If a student does the above, then the assignment will be regraded for a maximum grade of “70”. Note: This does NOT apply to vocabulary.com assignments, college prep work, or college work.
