Student Agenda Book (2019-2020 Information, policies, and regulations)
Changes to information contained in the RMHS
Student Handbook (Spin Book page 8). The spirit of this change is to ensure
students do not have an overwhelming number of assessments on any given day.
Please note the revised department assessment days outlined below, effective
Monday: Social Studies, World Languages
Tuesday: English/ESOL, Science/Tech Ed
Wednesday: Math, Social Studies
Thursday: World Languages, English/ESOL
Friday: Science/Tech Ed, Math
(PE) and the Arts may give an assessment on any day of the week.
With respect to this policy, an assessment is a major formative
or summative assessment covering multiple skills or
standards, or units/chapters. Exit cards and other
checking-for-understanding assessments are not considered major formative and
summative assessments. Major assessments may fall under the formative,
summative, or test/quiz grade book categories. A major assessment may be, but
is not limited to, an exam, test, quiz, or project. If a teacher or PLC
decides to delay an assessment based on student preparedness, data, or other
factors, the assessment must be moved to the next available department day. If unexpected or external factors beyond a teacher’s control
(weather, holiday) delay a teacher or PLC’s assessment, the teacher(s) will
work collaboratively with their class(es) to determine the next most
appropriate day to administer the assessment.
