Assignments turned in that do not meet the minimum standard must be revised/redone until they receive a passing score. Assignments not turned in or turned in and not meeting the minimum standard will receive a grade of zero (NTI) until they are turned in/revised/redone and meet the minimum standard (70%). The Class Participation/Work Ethic grade will also be reduced by 50 points for each missing assignment. Students will receive a grade on every assignment completed and turned in during the semester that meets the minimum standard ( note : the last day to turn in late or revised work is usually 10 school days before the end of the semester). The highest grade that can be earned on late or revised work is 70%.

The assessments are Work-Ready and End-of- Pathway. The Work-Ready assessment measures the skills of Georgia's workers, determines valuable job training opportunities, and assures companies that the state can provide a long- term, qualified labor supply, and is a requirement for some Georgia jobs. The End-of-Pathway assessment measures the level of technical skill attainment of each career pathway completer. The Work-Ready assessment will be administered to all work-based learning students and all seniors currently enrolled in a CTE course. The End-of-Pathway assessments will be administered to all CTE students who have finished or are finishing a pathway. Tests will be administered in October and April. Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) is a co-curricular student organization in Business and Computer Science that promotes leadership, career planning, community service, and social networking. Every student will be required to complete FBLA management assignments. Additionally, FBLA will be blended into all of the standards of the course. Membership is strongly encouraged for all students enrolled in this course. Dues are $15 for local, state, and national membership. See me for an application.
