The work will be completed during that time. Additional time may be given if needed (depending on the assignment). If the student does not show up for the teacher detention, then he/she will receive a "0" for the assignment and an administration detention will be assigned.Science Department Test/Retest PolicyStudents will be able to retest ONE test per marking period. In order to retest:
●Student must have all assignments completed for the subject tested prior to the first test, to be eligible for the retest.
●Student must successfully complete an additional assignment given by the teacher, such as a review.
●Student must meet with their science teacher outside of class time prior to the retest test.●The make-up test must be completed in 1 week from the date the assessment was put into power school.Here's to having a great year!!Mrs. Althouse
