    Grading Information:
    Late work: In an effort to prepare students for college and career, late work may only be submitted following a formal email requesting an extension. Late work will not be accepted from a previous term. Students who are absent are responsible for getting the work they've missed; they have the same amount of days missed to make up work. After this time, it is considered late.
    Tests account for 70% of the student's average;
    daily grades account for 30%.
