    Retake Policy:
    All units of study in semester and AP level courses will be broken into sections. The retake policy for both courses is as follows:
    Step 1:  Student takes section quiz on date assigned.  Score is returned to student.
    Step 2:  Student takes Unit Assessment when assigned.  Unit assessment will be broken into sections that mirror the section quizzes.  If student does better on section of unit assessment, original quiz score will be replaced.  The new score will be reported for both the quiz and the Unit Test.  at this time, the quiz score is now "locked."
    Step 3:  If student would like to retake any section of the unit assessment, they may do so at an assigned time, usually during the next PRIROARITIES period or at 8:15 AM.  A time will be scheduled with the teacher to do the retake work unless a rigid schedule has already been set for that retake.  Once retake is complete, the retake score will replace the Unit Assessment section score only.
    Step 4:  Students may request additional retakes on a case by case basis with the instructor. 
    At Potomac Falls, we value building relationships, working hard, and making connections to ensure students are life, college, and career ready.
