9 Tutoring & Makeup Work Tutoring, makeup/late work hours will be: Tuesday-Friday, from 8:30-8:55 a.m. If I have a morning meeting, tutoring will be offered from 4:30-5:00 that afternoon. Students needing help should attend tutoring within 2 calendar school days of not understanding and must attend before the start of a major culminative project. Once a project is assigned, tutoring on the related skills & concepts will not be provided. If the student misses class for any reason, it is the student’s immediate responsibility to make work up before the next class at 8:30 am with the teacher. Otherwise, you will be behind. Make-up work: one calendar school day for each day missed to make up work for full credit (no deductions)--after that, it becomes late work (80 max, 3 days). Any allowed makeup or late work must be in by the last Wednesday of the 6 weeks, regardless. No extensions. 8/20/2013, B. Killion-Procida9Principles of Information Technology
