A homework detention is given when 3 homework's are missing in **any subject** in the same marking period by **any teacher**

**Summative and Formative Assessments:**

Formative assessments will be given during a unit of study to see where each student is as we progress through a unit. Summative assessments will be given at the conclusion of a unit. Students will be given a continual review of the unit will always be given well in advance of an assessment and the students will always be well prepared. **Ongoing review of concepts is a must, and not the night before.**

**Trimesters**:

Trimesters are given once per trimester and are a cumulative assessment of that trimester’s work. A very comprehensive review is always given.
