Below are some frequently asked questions and answers regarding Second Semester grades:
Q: When Will Semester Grades Be Available?
A: Final Grades for all courses will be available on Aeries by Friday, June 14th. It is very possible that grades might be available sooner. All PYLUSD teachers have until Tuesday June 18th at noon to turn in grades on time.
Q: Can I Turn In Late Work To Fix My Grade?
A: Until Friday, June7th at 5:00pm, yes, as long as the assignment is a recent one and shows up on Aeries as a “missing assignment”. All missing/late work after Friday, June 7th at 5:00pm will be a zero grade, cannot be changed, and will not be taken late. On Friday June 7th, at 5:00pm, all websites will be disabled so that uploads will not be taken. Mobile App class has a different deadline shared with that class.
Q: In Mobile App or Animation Projects, I missed a grade by a few points, will you round it up?
A: No, please see the course info packet you signed in September in the section “Class Grading Scale” regarding this topic.
Q: In AP Computer Science, I missed a grade by a few points, will you round it up?
A: No, please see the course info packet you signed in September in the section “Class Grading Scale” regarding this topic. I would like to point out that I scaled all five quizzes that we took this semester, I provided an Extra Credit project for quiz extra credit, and I scaled the semester Final exam. In short, I have provided a number of opportunities for **every** AP Comp Sci. student to reach the next higher grade if they are close enough.
Have a great summer, thank you all for your hard work, and good luck Seniors with your future!
