It is getting towards the time of year when our Senior students are beginning to have work due for assessment. The following is based on infromation from the SACE website and will form the basis of our school Deadlines Policy.
The school sets assessment deadlines to provide clarity and to allow staff and students to manage their workloads. Some assessment pieces may require intermediate dates to monitor a student’s progress (drafts, journal evidence etc). The timeline for completing a task will be outlined by the teacher prior to starting a task. Students may negotiate extensions with their teacher prior to the assessment deadline.
The school will not accept work that is not handed up according to the timeline provided where there is not a valid reason. Failure to meet the final assessment deadline will result in that student failing the task.
A letter of non-submission will be posted home where students fail to meet intermediate or final deadlines.
