Here you will find Important information like my Late Work Policy and Absent Work Policy.
If work is one day late, 10 points will be deducted from the final grade. If work is two days late, 20 points will be deducted from the final grade. If work is three days late, 30 points will be deducted from the final grade. If work is 4 or more days late, students will receive a zero. In the spirit of fairness and per ELA department guidelines, there will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this policy.
When I don’t do my work…?
If you are in class and do not have an assignment ready to be turned in when it is due, you will be given a Pink Slip to complete at that time and you will return it to me. The Pink Slip is a way for students to take responsibility for not completing an assignment and Miss. Benning will keep track of them. After a student receives 3 Pink Slips, parents will be notified and a Parent/Teacher Conference will be Scheduled.
When I miss class, I...?
When students are absent from class it will be their responsibility to check the absent work bin upon returning to class to see what work they missed. Students can meet with me to get clarification about assignments that were missed. Students will have the equivalent amount of time to make up work as the time they were our of class (i.e. if absent 1 day then 1 day to make up work if 3 days absent then 3 days to make up work.)
Please be aware that you have ONLY 5 school days to seek clarification on any assignments you have missed. If the student does not meet with me WITHIN THOSE 5 DAYS AND does NOT TURN IN the missing work, then they will receive a ZERO.
