Retake Policy 

FIRST SEMESTER (Pre-AP Algebra 1)

1.  Retakes will cover the same objectives but will not be the same as the original test.

2.  Retakes may be less questions and/or a different format than the original test.  

3.  The deadline for retaking a test will be the date on which the next test is given. For example, on the date that the unit 2 test is given, students may no longer retake unit 1.

4.  Once a nine weeks ends and final grades are entered, students may not retake tests from that nine week grading period.  Occasionally, this may mean that the last test of a nine weeks will not be able to be retaken.  In those situations, the student WILL be informed in advance. 

5.  The student may retake as many times as they choose within the given time frame allowed UNTIL they score a grade lower than their previous score.

6.  The highest grade will be recorded in INOW.

7.  IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO SIGN UP FOR MAKE UP TESTS. If the student does not show up to take the test at the agreed upon time, they forfeit the right to retake that particular test and must keep the last grade earned.

8.  The teacher may decide to assign tutoring or review work prior to retaking a test.  Should that happen, the student forfeits their right to a retake if they do not complete this prerequisite work.

9.  Retakes WILL NOT be given for take home tests or projects.

10.  The goal of this retake policy is MASTERY of the course objectives.

 

NOTE:  It is ALWAYS best for the student to study and prepare for the FIRST test.  It is unwise for a student to purposefully plan for a retake rather than prepare for the original test.  Please encourage your child to use this retake policy as it is intended.
