Berkeley Middle School Academic Policy
It is the EXPECTATION of all staff at BMS that EVERY assignment is to be completed by EVERY student!
Students who have missing assignments will be required to work on those assignments before school, during recess, and other designated times.
Students will have the opportunity to turn in missing assignments during the respective unit. Assignments will not be accepted after the conclusion of the unit in which it was assigned.
Major assessments (tests, performance tasks) may be redone within the unit at the time designated by the teacher as long as the following criteria have been met.
- The assessment was completed by the student.
- The student attended required extra help session as determined by the teacher.
Late assignments turned in during the course of the unit will be graded without penalty.
Parents will be notified of missing assignments.
