Make-up Work

MAKE-UP POLICY FOR SCHOOL WORK

Students should be allowed a reasonable amount of time to make up work missed during an excused absence. Teachers may keep students after school to make up work, especially that which is missed by lack of effort during class time.
The following guidelines have been developed to help establish a uniform procedure for teachers to follow in helping students make up work following an absence:

“I” Illness
“E” Excused

Teachers will allow work to be made up, and give student needed assistance.

“U” Unexcused
“A” Uncleared

Responsibility for making up work rests entirely with the student. Teachers are to provide assignments when asked for, but need not assume responsibility for assisting with make-up work. Students may be required to make up time in order to meet the requirements for end of year activities and promotion.

“Z” Truancy
“T” Tardy

The privilege of making up work for credit may be secured only by the student making special arrangements with the teacher(s) concerned. Teachers are under no obligation to grant requests for such arrangement. Students may be required to make up time in order to meet the attendance requirements for end of year activities and promotion.

“S” or “N” Suspension or In-School Suspension
Responsibility for making up work rests entirely with the student. Teachers are to provide assignments when asked.
