Here are some important school-wide policies that apply to courses, grading, absenteeism and exams.  Please read over each one carefully and take note of how it applies to you!

Absenteeism and marks 

A legitimate absence is for school related activities, illness or bereavement.   Notes from home, signed by parents, need to be provided for such absences and presented to teachers directly.


Group marks 

Group marks will be earned based on your days present and working with your team.  For example, if a project takes ten class days to complete and the group receives a mark of 80%; but you were only there for 5 days you would receive a 40%.  Even if you have a legitimate reason for being absent the expectation is that you will make up for the time you missed by contributing to the group from home or working during study block when you are able.  Alternatively, if you know you are going to be absent you may choose to work alone if the teacher gives you that option. 




If you are absent, during a science lab without a legitimate written excuse, you will receive a mark of zero and the teacher will not make up the lab for you.  If you have a legitimate excuse and it is within his/her ability to do, the teacher may allow you to make up the lab. 


Late assignment policy: 

  • To get full marks, assignments need to be handed in by the assigned due date. 

  • For every date late, after the assignment due date, 10% will be deducted from the mark (up to a maximum of 40%).  Weekends count as one day. 

  • If a student is absent on a due date, a written legitimate excuse from a parent or guardian must be presented upon the student’s return, or the late-day deductions will apply. 

  • A student’s mark cannot be lower than 60% given that the student deserves a passing grade on the assignment to begin with.  Any work getting a mark of less than 60% will receive that grade. 

  • In order to be graded, all work must be handed in no later than one week after the given due date of the assignment.  Term marks are final. 


 BLMS Attendance Incentive – 

Exams are normally worth 30% of students’ mark. To reach Academic Incentive, a student must meet the following criteria: 

  1. Miss 5 or fewer classes in that particular subject (only school related activities and bereavement are exempted excuses); AND 

  1. Be in good standing (not owing for assignments, projects, etc.) 


The subject teacher will then apply one of the three following options to the student’s advantage: 

  1. 15% Final Exam, 85% Class Mark 

  1. 50% Final Exam, 50% Class Mark
