Assignment Passes

Students receive two assignment passes at the beginning of each quarter and they are valid for the rest of the school year. These passes may be submitted in place of any 25 point assignment (unless otherwise specified by the teacher) at the time the given assignment is due. This assignment pass removes the assignment from the student's grade (shown as a "P" in the grade printout) as if the assignment never existed. These passes are inteneded to be used when students have difficulty completing assignments due to unforeseen events or situations.
