Students have the opportunity to rework or retake assessments that score a 70% or lower (for MOST classes). If an assessment qualifies, a "reworks sheet" will be stapled to the paper and will have an expiration date stamped on it. The "reworks sheet" MUST be completed IN FULL by the expiration date and signed by an adult in the family. Reworks MUST be completed within 5 school days.
