What is FERPA?
GaVS Late Policy
Assignments at GaVS are given on a daily basis. Your student has a calendar with assignments on it for each school day. Not every day will the student be turning in work, but everyday there is a topic for the student to study or review. Even though assignments are given daily, they are not actually due until the Assignments Due Date. I highly recommend that your student submit work throughout the two-week period. This will enable me to grade it, offer feedback, and for the student to learn from that feedback.
The Assignments Due Date occurs every other Thursday at midnight. Work submitted after midnight is penalized per the GaVS late policy. The late policy is outlined below: Work submitted after midnight through the end of the day Sunday after the ADD is penalized 10%. Work submitted on Monday after the ADD is penalized 20%. Work submitted on Tuesday after the ADD is penalized 30%. Work is not accepted after the Tuesday following the ADD.
It is important to realize that working behind has a domino effect on the grade, the calendar, and the content. Please encourage your student to work ahead to avoid late penalties and last minute emergencies.
