In the Business Department we utilize the following marks in the grade book:
- X Indicates the student is exempt from the assignment/assessment
- Z Indicates that the student has not completed and submitted the assignment but they are still able to.
- 0 Indicates that the students has missed the deadline for completing/submitting the assignment and has received a zero.
It is the policy of the Business Department that late work is accepted up to 2 weeks from the due date without a late penalty. After that, a zero will be given and the student will not be able to make up the assignment unless extenuating circumstances have been discussed with the administrative staff at the high school and approved.
