Make Up Work Policy 

  • MAKING UP WORK: Pages 42-43 of the HCSB Student Progression Plan
  • A student shall be given the opportunity to make up work within two class meeting days per absence
    upon their return. Excused Absence work will receive full credit. Unexcused absence work will receive full credit, up to 5 days per semester. Out of school suspension is considered an unexcused absence. However, the make-up work must be made up within two days of the when unexcused absence occurred. Also, the make-up rule does not apply when the work was assigned prior to the student’s absence. In such cases the test(s), project(s), etc. must be turned in immediately to the teacher when the student arrives on campus unless an extension of the time has been approved by the teacher or the principal due to extenuating circumstances. If the work is not made up within the time period granted, all zeroes will remain. If a student fails as a result of incomplete work, the report card shall reflect that the grade is based on incomplete work.
