Assignment 1

Important Dates

In-Class Assignment Wednesday October 24, 2012


All assignments and projects will have a due date.
The due date is the beginning of the period for that given class. For example if a project is due for the period one class it must be submitted at 10:00 AM, if it is due for the period four class on a Wednesday, then it is due at 2:49 PM.
The due date represents the date in which the assignment/project is due. Students should submit the assignment/project to their subject teacher on the due date. If a student does not submit the task on the due date the subject teacher will contact the parents/guardian to notify them of the outstanding work that day. The subject teacher will not provide support after the due date has passed.
Late marks will be deducted on late assignments. This strategy is in keeping with the Ministry’s policy document “Growing Success”. Late projects/assignments will be assessed at a reduction of 5% per day for the first two days and 10% per day after that to a maximum of 50%. Each project will be assessed for the 100% of its original value, and late marks will be clearly stated on the final evaluation. After 6 school days, a student will receive a zero. Students are strongly encouraged to still hand in late projects for assessment and written feedback. A Saturday Club inclusion will be made within the 6 days.
Projects/assignments turned into the teacher after they have been marked and returned to students, will not be awarded a grade if the project/assignment is one the teacher believes can be copied from peers (at teacher’s discretion), however, written feedback on the assignment will be given. (For example: journals, reflection pieces, etc.)

Extension Request Form

There is a procedure for students to seek relief from a due date and extend a deadline without academic penalty. In extraordinary circumstances, extensions may be granted, if an Extension Request Form is filled out by the student and signed by a parent and approved by the teacher at least one day before the due date. It is up to the discretion of the teacher and the school administration whether or not to accept the Extension Request. A student may request an extension to the maximum of 2 times in each course and for no more than 3 days. After the allotted time has passed and the assignment has not been submitted then late marks will be assigned. Our policy recognizes that extenuating circumstances may legitimately prevent a student from meeting a due date. The Extension Request Form may be garnered from the principal or vice-principal.
