LaVergne Middle School
To see students perform best on their first attempt on any assignment, projects, or assessments, given appropriate study techniques, practices, and efforts have been best utilized.
Not all students will master the standards/skills the first time around. As a result, students must take ownership of their actions to reflect on practices and seek to complete review exercises before a second attempt is granted. This policy provides for additional time and support, parental involvement and student accountability.
Procedure: Assessment Recovery for CPA’s ONLY (student must see actual graded assessment)
Procedure: Assignment Recovery- (student must see actual graded assessment)
Criteria: (One Attempt Chance)
Students with an IEP and direct ESL services will be given two recovery attempts on work initially turned in with failing grade. Criteria and Procedures remains the same.
