“Recovery Policy”

Ultimate Goal:

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.

Rationale:

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)

  1.       Students must request permission, complete two prescriptive technology assignments (assigned by the teacher) within two days of the issued and graded assessment. The two prescriptive technology lessons must be completed by the end of the second allotted two-day period of the class in question, scoring 85> on both prescriptive assignments. (the two prescriptive assignment scores and the original assessment score will be averaged and new score will be recorded in gradebook.
  2.       CFA’s and Quizzes will not be given as an option to recover.

Procedure: Assignment Recovery- (student must see actual graded assessment)

  1.       Students must request permission to Redo an Assignment. Student must complete and submit missing assignment (as indicated by the teacher) within two days of the returned graded assignment. The deadline ends on the last day of that class on the second day.
  2.       Never Attempts to turn in or redo assignment, the assignment is recorded as a 0 in the teacher gradebook.

 

Criteria: (One Attempt Chance)

  1.       Any student may embrace the opportunity to improve any assessment grade.
  2.       Any student can recover an Assignment if grade is lower than a 70. Higher possible Redo grade will be recorded. If student did not turn in the assignment on the first original attempt, highest possible grade recorded will be an 80.

Extensions:

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. 

                                 

 

             ****If a pattern of failure is recognized, a parent conference must be set up by the teacher.

 

 

****Teacher will post original grade within 48 hours of submission.
