80% - Turned in between two and ten school days late from posted due date.
*Late work beyond the ten school day period will be accepted for a grade based on teacher discretion.Homework PolicyHomework must be completed on time to receive full credit. Late homework can be turned in until the end of the quarter for half credit.Retake Policy
Any retakes occur after reteaching or assigned review work. Students may retake most grammar and vocabulary assessments for up to an 84, but no more than one retake is permitted for an assessment. The highest score will be taken. All homework prior to that assessment must be completed and the retake must be scheduled within two weeks of the return of the assessment grades. Retakes may not be in the same format as the original assessment, for example a vocab quiz retake might go from English to Latin instead of Latin to English. Retakes are not offered on skills based assessments, like translation and reading comprehension, or benchmark exams, projects, and presentations.
