    Beginning in 2015-2016 school year, Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 will be calculating the course average using only the 4 quarter grades. These courses will not be giving a midterm exam in January. As a department, we feel there are more valuable methods to assess our students’ progress throughout the year. We will be incorporating cumulative activities throughout the year.

     

    MATH DEPARTMENT GRADING POLICY FOR REGENTS-LEVEL COURSES

     

    -         No Regents-level course will give a midterm

    o   Ongoing assessment will be provided throughout the year

     

    -         All Regents-level courses will compute the student’s final grade by averaging the four quarter grades – the Regents exam will have no effect on a course grade, but will be recorded on the student’s permanent transcript

     

    -         Regents Exams

    o   All students must take the Regents exam that is offered for their course

    o   Passing the Algebra 1 exam is required for graduation

    o   Passing the Geometry and Algebra 2 exams are required for the Advanced Regents Diploma

     

    -         Completion of Regents Exam is Required

    o   If a student does not show up for the Regents exam, a notation of ABSENT UNEXCUSED will be recorded for the exam on the student’s permanent transcript

    o   Attendance at summer school is prohibited if the final exam is not taken because the course is considered incomplete (BHS Parent/Student Handbook)
