Earning Extra Credit

Students can receive up to 5 points of extra credit in any given marking period. A student who earns 5 extra credit points would raise their marking period average by 5 points (i.e. a grade of 85, which is a B becomes a 90, which is an A). Extra credit is earned in the following way:

Working on Production Crew for Events (1 Point) - 1 extra credit point can be earned by signing up to work on the production crew for a LDTV Sports event or a school event covered by the Lenape TV club (i.e. awards ceremony or musical concert). To earn the full amount of credit, the students must sign-up using the appropriate method, arrive by the crew call time that is posted, effectively work the crew job they are assigned, and help to break down and put away all equipment upon the completion of the event.

*Extra credit may only be earned if the student has completed all of their assignments.
