All students complete a culminating activity in their classes at the end of each semester. Final exams/projects are worth 20% of the student's semester average, with each of the 9 weeks' grades contributing to 40% of the semester average.
Students who earned Attendance Incentive(s) can replace their semester exam grade with the average of their 9 weeks' grades in 1-2 of their classes.
The Attendance Incentive program was designed to increase student achievement by maximizing the amount of time students spend in instruction. The hope is to minimize avoidable absences. Attendance Incentives allow students will excellent attendance have the option of replacing their semester exam grade with the average of their 9 weeks' grades in 1-2 of their classes if the 9 weeks' average is higher.
Students who have 8 or fewer class period absences and no more than 2 absences in a single class period will earn an incentive for two courses. Students who have 12 or fewer class period absences and no more than 3 absences in a single class will earn an incentive for one course. Absences that count for the purpose of Attendance Incentives are coded as UNX, ILP, ILH, and OTH. Essentially, any full-day absence that is not school related is included in the absence total when determining who earns incentives.
