    Retake Policy
     
     The Science Department encourages students to prepare for assessments the first time the assessment is given.  However, we realize that everyone has a bad day once in a while so we have constructed a retake policy to encourage the mastery of the material.
    • Tests and quizzes are the only assessments that are eligible for retakes.  For a student to be eligible to retake an assessment they must follow their teachers retake process.

    • If a student earns a 69 or below on a summative assessment (not projects), the student MUST retake the assessment until they earn a minimum grade of 70. The teacher will staple the Retake Contract to the original assessment. This teacher-driven re-teach/retake process must take place within six days of receipt of the graded assessment. 

    • If a student earns a 70-79 on a summative assessment, the student MAY retake this assessment ONCE. The student must obtain a Retake Contract from the teacher and staple it to the original assessment. This student-driven review/retake process must take place within six days of receipt of the graded assessment.  

    • Students will receive the higher of the two grades up to a maximum of 80%.
