                                          Making Up Missing Work
                                                   Mr. Christensen

Not Completed Assignments:
      If you are here the day the assignment is given and you do not have it completed on the
      day it is corrected or collected you will receive a 0. The assignment may still be handed in
      “late” for 85% of the original points only if you have not taken a Unit Test on the material
      and it is done during supervised study after school under the supervision of the teacher
      monitor.

Excused Absence:
      You are responsible to make-up the Individual Practice Assignment only (unless
      special instructions are given when you pick up the assignment)! You have 3 class days to get
      and complete work missed due to an excused absence or an out-of-school suspension
      from school. Here is the board policy: “A student excused under the Wisconsin State Statute guidelines for
      attendance will complete any course work missed during an absence. Any student assigned an out-of-school suspension
      will fall under the same guidelines as an excused absence. Students suspended in school are not considered absent. The
      student has the responsibility of obtaining missed class work, notes, assignments, etc. by no later than the
      next class period. The teacher has the responsibility of supplying missed assignments and in-class work information
      due to absences or in-school suspensions. The student will then have one day to complete the missed work due
      to absences unless otherwise mutually agreed upon between the student and teacher.”

      When work is not handed in within the 3 class days described above, it will be recorded as
      a 0. The assignment may still be handed in “late” for 85% of the original points if you have
      not taken a Unit Test on the material and it is done during supervised study after school.
      Here is the board policy: “If a student does not meet the deadlines as stated above they may forfeit
      either the total amount of credit for the assignment or a set percentage of the assignment, as determined by
      the teacher. The teacher’s policy for late and make-up work will be outlined in their course syllabus and given to each
      student enrolled in their class.”

      Example (full credit): You’re absent on a Monday. Your make-up work is due the following
          Tuesday. You’re absent on a Tuesday. Your make-up work is due by the following
          Wednesday. You’re absent on a Wednesday. Your make-up work is due by the
          following Thursday, and so on.
      Example (85% credit): You’re absent on a Monday. You did not hand in the assignment
          by the following Tuesday. You may still get 85% credit for the assignment if it is
          completed under the supervision of a teacher during supervised study.

Unexcused Absence:
      Work handed in within 3 class days of the absence will receive 60% of the original points.
           “No Credit” is given after that time period. Here is the board policy: “Students with an
              unexcused absence or an out-of-school suspension will be held to the same responsibility mentioned previously in
              number 1; however, the teacher is not required to give credit for missed work due to unexcused
              absences or out-of-school suspensions, with the exception of major exams.”

Special Note: When no score appears for a task on a progress report that indicates that it can
be made up for full credit. A “0” for a task on a progress report indicates that time has run out
and the work can no longer be done for full credit. However, it is highly recommended that
you still do the work (preferably during supervised study to get partial credit) in preparation for
future tests and quizzes.
