All work in the 65 percent category are essays in these can be revised to improve students' grades. Revisions must be completed within 10 school days of students receiving the teacher's feedback either in writing or through Google Classroom. If a student has extenuating circumstances and needs additional time to complete a revision it is the student's responsibility to notify the teacher and work with the teacher to determine an appropriate due date for that student's circumstance.
 
If a student did not hand in an assignment in the 65 percent category a zero will be entered into the grade book. Students who receive a zero will have 10 school days from the day the assignment grade is entered into the grade book to submit their 65 percent category assignment either to the teacher or through Google Classroom. Students submitting their 65 percent category assignments after the due date will not be able to make revisions to improve their grade. If a student has extenuating circumstances and needs additional time to complete an essay it is the student's responsibility to notify the teacher and work with the teacher to determine an appropriate due date for that student's circumstance.
 
Work in the 15 percent and 20 percent categories cannot be redone. Missing work in those categories will be accepted until the end of the unit in which these assignments were assigned. If a student has extenuating circumstances and needs additional time to complete a revision it is the student's responsibility to notify the teacher and work with the teacher to determine an appropriate due date for that student's circumstance.
 
Retake policy for Writing for Newspaper
 
Students should publish an average of one story per week. Students will receive teacher feedback on each story published and will choose their two best stories to receive two grades in the 65 percent category each month. Students may not redo an individual news story once it has been published, but students may write additional stories for publication until they receive two grades they are proud to submit for their 65 percent category grades each month.
