ing Policy
This document speaks to our assessment program and how students are evaluated each quarter. This aligns with the MHS Grading Policy as well

So..we know what to do as teachers but are we clear with students as to what we expect of them in our class and with the work? These expectations support student engagement, involvement, and interaction, Hand out to students , hand out to parents. Discuss, refer to them all year!!
