Make-Up Work Policy
- My general rule is that for each day a student misses (and provided it is an EXCUSED absence), the student is permitted one day following his or her return to school to turn in the missing work.
- So, a student who misses one day is allowed one day following his or her return to school to turn in the work that was missed.
- Likewise, a student missing two days will be granted two days to turn in missing work following his or her return to school.
- The only work that does not have to be made-up are in-class assignments, such as a video or review game.
An example: Bill is absent on Monday and the class moves on to the next lesson in the chapter or unit. When Bill returns to school on Tuesday, he is expected to turn in the homework that was due on Monday. This is when Bill will receive the work he missed while absent (homework, notes, etc.). Since Bill was absent for only one day, he is permitted one day to turn in the missing work without it being counted late. In this scenario, Bill has until Wednesday to turn in the homework he missed due to his absence.
Keep in mind: If you miss school and it is recorded as an unexcused absence, you will receive a zero for all assignments collected and due on the day of the absence.
