• Attendance Policy:

    • Students who engage in learning activities via the HUB, participate in a Teams meeting with teachers, or submit assignments via the HUB are considered “present” and will not be marked absent. Students assignment submission is via the HUB for each scheduled class. When unable to submit via the HUB students can submit assignments via email, phone conferences, or other forms of documentation. Failure to act on one of these options for each class period will result in being marked ABSENT for that class period.
    • Students must be marked present at least 90% of each of their classes to receive credit for that class.
    • An absence can be resolved if the student engages in activities assigned by their teachers and submits by 11:59 PM.
    • A student must be engaged each and every day. If a student is engaged in remote learning and completes the entire week’s worth of learning activities on Monday and does not participate for the remainder of the week, he/she will be marked “present” on Monday only and counted “absent” for Tuesday - Friday.
    • If at any point during the school year you have questions or concerns related to attendance, please contact Student Information Representative (SIR) Claudia Alvarenga at calvaren@houstonisd.org. Should your concern go unresolved, please contact a member of administration: Principal Ramon Moss, Assistant Principal Juan Garner, or Dean of Instruction Melissa Matsu.

     

    Grading Policy:

    • All cycle grades will be used in the calculation of the final average for any class. Final exams will be administered.
    • The calculation for high school semester grades has changed for the 2020 - 2021 school year. Each six-week cycle grade will count as 30% of the semester grade, and the final exam will count as 10% of the semester grade. The new formula will apply to all high school courses taken in both middle and high school.
    • At least 2 grades per week per class will be taken. Students and parents are encouraged to check their grades in PowerSchool regularly.
    • No single assignment can weigh more than 20% in the 6-week cycle average.
    • The HUB will be used as the central location for all assignment instructions. Teachers may link to other sites, but all information about those links will be on the HUB landing page for each course.
    • If at any point during the school year you have questions or concerns related to grades, please contact the individual teacher directly at the email listed on our school website under Faculty & Staff. Should your concern go unresolved, please contact a member of administration: Principal Ramon Moss, Assistant Principal Juan Garner, or Dean of Instruction Melissa Matsu
