• Incomplete Policy

    Incompletes can be given to students who did not complete coursework due to extenuating circumstances that are beyond their control. If students are missing Essential Learning items in Academic Performance category at the end of a term, the student grade may be reported as an incomplete until the student completes those items. When a student earns a grade of (I) Incomplete, it will be reflected in the computation of his/her new GPA as a zero. This zero stays until the grade is changed. In order to resolve an incomplete, the student must make arrangements with the teacher to complete the missing work. If an incomplete is not completed by these arrangements the student has these options:
    1. Contract with their teacher to finish it: If student contracts with a teacher, the teacher stipulates what must be done and a deadline (at least 3 weeks after the end of the term) for completion of work. If student contracts with teacher, and does not complete by the contracted deadline, the “I” turns in to an “F” and there is no option to go to credit recovery.
    2. Enroll in an in-school credit recovery class: If student enrolls in the in-school credit recovery class, they must finish the incomplete by the end of the term of enrollment. If they do not, the “I” turns into an “F” and there is no option to go to 287 credit recovery. This option is only available if the original class is able to provide materials to allow credit recovery. If the teacher can provide rubrics to correct the assessments associated with the incomplete, then the credit recovery teacher can do this. If not, then the original teacher must evaluate the work. 
    3. Enroll in a 287 after school credit recovery class: If student enrolls in the 287 after school credit recovery class, they have one year from time of enrollment to complete the course (per 287 guidelines). If they do not, the “I” turns in to an “F.” This option is only available if the original class is able to provide materials to allow credit recovery. If the teacher can provide rubrics to correct the assessments associated with the incomplete, then the credit recovery teacher can do this. If not, then the original teacher must evaluate the work. 
    4. Enroll in a 287 summer school class: If student enrolls in the 287 summer school credit recovery class, need to complete credit in summer school. If they do not, they must re-take the class in the regular school year. The original grade of “I” turns in to an “F.” This option is only available if the original class is able to provide materials to allow credit recovery. If the teacher can provide rubrics to correct the assessments associated with the incomplete, then the credit recovery teacher can do this. If not, then the original teacher must evaluate the work.
