Family and Consumer Science Department Testing and Retake Policy
Retakes will be allowed on all Summative Assessments with the following guidelines:
1. Students must have demonstrated consistent growth and effort over the duration of the Unit.
2. Retake must be completed within 10 school days. The previous grade will be recorded until the retake is completed.
3. Students have the responsibility of setting a time for the retake within the normal school day, unless other arrangements have been discussed with the teacher (mornings or after school).
Retakes on these assessments will be at the discretion of the teacher.
Long Term Projects:
Retakes on long term projects will not be allowed, except for extenuating circumstances discussed between the teacher and the student.
This retake policy is subject to change if the actions of the students warrant such revision. Students need to demonstrate consistent growth over the course of the Unit.
This policy will be discussed with all students at the start of the school year, and the policy will be communicated to parents at this time also.
