Grades are weighted in my classroom as follows:
Papers/Projects - 25%
Homework - 20%
Classwork - 20%
Participation/Responsibility - 10%
It is a general rule that tests are not allowed to be re-taken.
Occasionally, extra credit is offered. It is recommended that students take advantage of this opportunity when it is presented.
Students and parents can keep up to date with grades and missing work by checking PowerSchool on a regular basis. This way, surprises can be avoided at the end of each term!
Teachers at Beach Middle School stress responsibility and student ownership of grades.
