Below we have compiled some of the most common questions that have been asked relating to Attendance & Grades, so we encourage you to review them prior to making your pre-committal choice.
Grading & Assessment
No. In accordance with TEA guidelines, grading policies must be consistent for both remote and on-campus students. 
Major tests will be proctored  online during live, synchronous instructional time. Assignments that make dishonesty and cheating more difficult will be considered such as (but not limited to) open-book/resources at hand, open-ended responses, portfolios, oral assessments, performance-based tasks, etc.
student who is required to quarantine will not be marked absent if they participate daily in remote learning coursework.  
Students who have a doctor's note for their illness will be marked with an excused absence and thus grading policies related to excused absences will be applied. 
Course expectations will be the same for both on-campus and remote learning.
Students enrolled in remote instruction courses with movement based TEKS can demonstrate mastery of skills through a variety of assessment options. Students may be viewed through video submission, with signed permission. Students may submit a portfolio or student self-assessment with a written step by step description of physical movements.  A written assessment, created by the teacher, may be used to assess mastery or a live conference could be created with the student to allow live performance and feedback. Some TEKS in dance and theatre require performance for an audience. This could be addressed with lab hours, where the student could have a set performance time assigned on campus.
