In Skyward there are two grading categories. One is for daily work which is called Daily Work in Skyward, the other is Mastery and Understanding of learning which is called Assessment in Skyward. Daily Work is worth 25% of the student's grade, and the assessments are worth 75% of the student's grade. An * means that the assignment has been turned in but is currently ungraded. If a "0" appears in Skyward, this means that the student has not completed and turned in the daily work or has received a "0" on the daily work or assessment.

What to do when a student is absent/homework
Please check your student's planner for information about what students did in class today and any homework that may have been assigned. A schedule of the day's activities will be posted on the white board in the front of the classroom. Students may drop by before or after school on designated days. Students should plan to bring their stamped planner to me at the beginning of class following an absence so that we may schedule a time line for make up work to be completed.
