Participation points are earned each day that a student is present in class. Full credit is based on a student's effort and adherence to rules and routines. Absences result in no points for that day. However, lost points due to absences can
be made up. For details, refer to our makeup policy
Workouts are physical activities separate from the current unit of instruction which are graded separately from daily participation. Workouts can be made up by running a supervised mile. See our makeup policy
for further details.
The mile run is a monthly workout that takes place each month. Students are graded against their own individual best time rather than a single standard. The following provides specific detail about how the mile run is graded:
