Reassessment Policy: Reassessments are an option for students who earn below an 84% on the original assessment. Prior remediation is required before taking the reassessment. Remediation assignments and reassessments must be completed in accordance with the posted deadlines. Students may earn up to an 84% on the reassessment. Retests will ONLY be given on Monday and Tuesday mornings at 8:15am and on the afternoon of the activity bus.
