GRADING POLICY FOR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT 

            Students attending Human Development classes will be awarded points per class session. The actual number of points per day will be based on the number of classes per marking period. These points will be awarded as a class participation grade. To receive the class participation grade the student must meet the following requirements:

  1. Be physically present in the classroom, on time or with a tardy pass.
  2. Have a pen or pencil and Human Development notebook (manuel or electronic) with them. Students may use a divider in a different subject’s notebook to keep Human Development notes.
  3. Participate in a cooperative manner with the instructor and other students. This includes note taking, notebook maintenance and class rules.
  4. Remain in class for the entire class session or have a legal excuse for an early dismissal.
