Zeros Aren't Permitted
ZAP is currently NOT available for this year. Please attend a tutorial for your class, or visit the library for after school computer time to get and stay caught up with each class.
ZAP will be the 5th week of each grade period, Mon-Thurs 3:00p-4:30p. We will announce this in the class meetings and will make reminder announcements the week of also.
- Since all assignments lay the foundation for future learning, ZAP allows students an opportunity to demonstrate their mastery and understanding of assignments they did not complete by the initial deadline.
- ZAP is a campus based program and all teachers must accept ZAP assignments for daily work.
- As a teacher, you are not doing anymore grading this year for ZAP than last year.
- You have the option of altering the assignment by requiring students to do more than the initial assignment, thus discouraging students from waiting for ZAP Friday . The concept/skill will still be the same.
- ZAP work is not to be done during class time. Students are to complete ZAP work on their own time.
- Optional-Teachers may require students to do the ZAP work with them before/after school and submit on ZAP Friday (another deterrent to those students who intentionally do not submit on time).
- ZAP is for DAILY WORK/homework and not major grades or projects.
- ZAP assignments will be submitted on the designated date and during scheduled class period.
- ZAP assignments will be given directly to the teacher.
- The highest grade a student can earn on a ZAP assignment is a 75.
- Prior to the first ZAP Friday, inform students of specific ZAP requirements (afterschool time requirements and changes to initial assignments).
- ZAP is only once a grading period. Since ZAP is offered the Friday after the issuance of progress reports, students who miss daily work after progress reports will not have an opportunity to make-up those assignments. ZAP is only for assignments missed during the first part of the current grading period. (NOTE: Teachers are required to input a minimum of 2 grades a week).
- Students are responsible for keeping track of ZAP dates and submitting missed daily assignments to their appropriate teacher on the designated ZAP date for current grading period.
- Students will get missed work from their teacher before or after school and turn in on the designated ZAP date. Class time will not be used to disseminate assignments for missing grades. Teachers may establish a management system within the classroom that does not take away from instructional time (file folder with ZAP assignments).
- Although recommended, teachers are not required to notify a student of 0’s earned due to missing daily assignments. The student is responsible for keeping a written record of assignments and grades, including missing daily grades. Parents are encouraged to use the Parent Self Serve program to keep track of assignments and grades.
