Students need to come to class with the necessary schools supplies. Students will be provided with a list of supplies required for each class (typically they include a pen/pencil, a 2 pocket folder, and a notebook). Students will have until the end of the first week of school to bring in the required materials. After the first week, if students arrive without necessary materials, points in the Prepared with Classroom Materials category will be lost. Students can purchase some school supplies from the School Store using points they have earned. Pens, pencils, and folders are 100 points; notebooks are 250 points.
Part of students’ grades will be based on appropriate class participation. The points a student earns in class will become a weekly participation grade. There will be assignments in which the only grade a student is earning is the participation grade (e.g. reading a novel in class, viewing a film, or class discussion).
Completing homework is mandatory at Niles Central. Student and homework is graded and factored into a student’s overall grade. Homework may be independent assignments or extensions of assignments worked on in class.
Make-up work will only be accepted for full credit if a student missed an assignment due to an excused absence. The day a student returns to school, it is the student’s responsibility to ask for the work he/she missed. The student will have the number of days he/she was absent to complete the work (i.e. if a student is absent 1 day, he/she has 1 day to complete the make-up work). If the student has an unexcused absence in a class, he/she will have the opportunity to receive up to 50% credit for a make-up assignment. Again, it is the student’s responsibility to ask for the work on the day he/she returns to school.
Out of School Suspension
Students are given the opportunity to complete 100% of any assigned work or tests. If the work involves classroom participation where the student must be present, he/she will not have the opportunity to complete the missed work. If the student was not already given the work to complete during the suspension, he/she will have the same number of days as he/she was suspended to complete any work that was missed.
All students are encouraged to complete extra credit assignments; however, students are only eligible to earn extra credit if all of the required assignments are complete. If a student has an unexcused absence, he/she must make up the work for partial classroom credit before being given the opportunity to complete extra credit work. If a student has an idea regarding an extra credit assignment, he/she should speak to the teacher for approval before completing the assignment. Remember, extra credit assignments must be related to the subject area of the class.
