Reminder of Late Work Policy

To encourage students to complete their academic work, Ms. Z has a late work policy. Most assignments are able to accepted late unless the assignment specifically states that no late work is accepted.

-A late assignment will lose a point for each day it is late.
-For example if an assignment it worth 20 points and was due on 01/04/19, and it was turned in 6 day late on 1/10/19, the assignment loses 6 points and the highest possible score a student could earn is 14 points.
-A late assignment will loose points until the assignment is no longer worth any points.
-For example if a 20 point assignment was due on 01/04/19 and it was turned in on 1/23/19, the assignment loses 19 points and the highest possible score a student could earn in a 1 point.
