LATE WORK POLICY – this is the Policy for ALL English and World Language courses
Late work policy regarding daily assignments:

1. Teachers will not accept late work. (Students should see their student handbook for the specific make-up work policy for students with excused absences.)

2. However, each student will receive one “late work acceptance” coupon per quarter that he/she may use to submit one late daily assignment for full credit. (Note: The student must turn in the assignment no more than one day after the original due date, and he/she may not use the coupon for late major assignments.)

Late work policy regarding major projects, long-term assignments, papers , etc.:

1. Major, long-term (more than two days) projects and papers, for which students receive ample time to complete, must be turned in on time. Students will not be allowed to turn in major assignments after the due date.

2. Because teachers provide class time for many major assignments, teachers will not accept excuses for incomplete or late work due to home computer problems or jump/flash drive problems. The only acceptable “computer problem” excuse is a server failure at school.

3. Many students choose to work on their assignments at home as well as in school. Students working at home should save their work to a jump/flash drive (in addition to saving it to their computer hard drive) so that (a) they have a back up file of the assignment in case something happens to their home computer, (b) they can access their file at school in order to work on it during class lab days, and (c) they can save their file in their school student folder in case they experience technical problems with their home computer.

4. Any student claiming to have completed an assignment at home MUST provide evidence of the completed assignment to the teacher before he/she will be allowed to use class time for any purpose other than to complete the current assignment. Evidence can include an accessible, saved file or a hard copy.
