Grading and Attendance 

Grading is done on a point system.  Multiple choice, fill-in, and true-false questions are each worth two points.  Short answer questions will have varying values.  For example, a 15 question fill-in quiz would be worth 30 points.  The value of homework and labs varies with the difficulty of the assignment.  At the end of the quarter the total number of points that the student has earned is divided by the total number of points possible to obtain a percent grade.  For example, 800 points earned from a possible 1,000 would be an 80 %, or B-.  


Attendance- It is very important to the success of your child that he/she is in class on time each day.
