Grading System:


The scholastic year is divided into four quarters. The grade for each quarter is based on daily assignments, class participation, quizzes, and tests. (Extra credit work assigned after the end of the quarter is not allowed). In the computation of the student's quarter, semester, and final grade, only the one-digit fraction of .5 or greater is automatically rounded to the next higher number. Semester grades are determined by averaging the two quarter numerical grades (80%) and the semester exam grade (20%). The final grade in any course is the average of the two semester numerical grades. A numerical average of 70% or better is required to receive credit. Students who do not meet the attendance requirements will not receive credit for the course.

 

 

Grade Point Average
 

To determine the grade point average, the total number of quality points is divided by the number of courses taken (excluding those courses for which a grade of "Pass/Fail" is given and driver's education). All student's grades (report cards, transcripts) will be reported on a 4.0 scale.

 

Grades for Transfer Students


All final grades are recorded on the transcript as letter grades. Grades reported in progress as percentage grades will be recorded as percentage grades. Grades reported in progress as letter grades will be recorded as percentage grades based on the midpoint of each letter category of the Teurlings Catholic grading scale.


The formula for determination of grades is as follows: Transfer grade multiplied by the number of days in the program in a quarter plus Teurlings Catholic grade times the number of days in a quarter at Teurlings Catholic divided by 45.
Example: 87(16/45) + 70(29/45) = 76.
 

Homebound Student Grade Policy
 

Students who are out of school for more than two weeks for serious medical and/or psychological conditions, accident injuries, or surgery may be asked by the Academic Assistant Principal to enter the Homebound program through the public school system. Guidance counselors will work with families to facilitate the process.   Grades for homebound work will be submitted by the local public school system and those grades will be averaged as necessary into the Teurlings Catholic report card grades.
 

 

Correspondence, Dual Enrollment and Louisiana Virtual School Courses
 

While enrolled at Teurlings Catholic High School, the student may be allowed to take correspondence courses through an accredited university to remediate a required course or for elective credit. Level counselors and the assistant principal/academics must approve. Teurlings Catholic High School sets the deadline for completion of course.

 

Students may also schedule courses for elective credit through the Louisiana Virtual School. Students may not schedule an LVS course that is also offered on campus. Coursework for LVS courses and grading are completed on-line. LVS students receive semester and final grades only and grading in these courses is cumulative. Unofficial LVS status grades, as provided by LVS, are included on TCHS quarterly report cards only to determine academic probation status. A fee of $150 per course is required, paid by check to Louisiana Virtual School prior to the start of the academic year.


Teurlings Catholic does not assess grades for LVS courses but accepts the grades assigned by LVS. All grade corrections and disputes must be handled by the student directly with LVS according to the guidelines and deadlines posted on the LVS website. Additionally, students in the LVS program at Teurlings Catholic High School must adhere to all LVS requirements, as stated in the individual student agreement signed with the Louisiana Virtual School. Students must meet all LVS course requirements and prerequisites as stated by LVS.


Students in Dual Enrollment courses receive grades from Teurlings Catholic for the appropriate high school work as well as from the university granting college credit. Grades for those courses are determined by the university criteria. Students are reminded that all Dual Enrollment grades will be included on all future college transcripts and may affect a student’s TOPS status the first semester of college. Students who fail a Dual Enrollment course or who wish to improve a DE grade may do so at their expense by attending a subsequent semester at the university. Dual Enrollment students must follow all guidelines, including those for plagiarism, student dishonesty, and prerequisites, as set by the individual university, as well as all Teurlings Catholic guidelines.

 

 

 

Class Ranking
 

Teurlings Catholic High School ranks its students in deciles. No individual rank will be given.

 

 

 

 

Academic Accountability:

 

Academic Honesty and Plagiarism

Students are expected to maintain the highest standards of academic honesty. This includes work on research papers, homework, and other assignments as well as on tests. Students should refrain from loaning computer files and/or access to other students. If work has been copied, there is assumed guilt on the part of all students involved. Student work or behavior that, in the opinion of the teacher, is a violation of academic honesty will be subject to the consequences of the cheating rule. Students should have a strong desire to do their best and not to take credit for the efforts of another student.

 

Plagiarism is defined as the intentional or unintentional taking and use of ideas, passages, etc. from another's work, representing them as one's own. Plagiarism is not tolerated at Teurlings and a grade of "0" is given for each instance of unintentional plagiarism. Intentional plagiarism is subject to disciplinary penalties in addition to the academic penalties.

 

Academic Probation

Students are placed on Academic Probation if and when they receive a "D", an "F", or a "I" at the midpoint of any quarter or on the quarterly or semester report card. The student will not be allowed to be excused from that class for any extracurricular activity until the next reporting period at which time the grade must be a "C" or better. In addition, the student is encouraged to meet with the grade level counselor and/or the Assistant Principal of Academics. Arrangements can be made at that time for tutoring. Incomplete grades carry the value of an "F" grade until all work is completed.

 

Report Cards

Report Cards are available at the end of each nine weeks period. Students who receive an "I", a "D" or an "F" will be placed on Academic Probation. Each student will be encouraged to schedule an appointment with his or her counselor. Academic Probation also carries the consequence that a student may not miss that class for extra-curricular functions. Parents are urged to contact the teacher of the subject involved. Parents may check grades at any time through the RenWeb system.

 

Failure Letters

After the third quarter report cards, failure letters will be mailed to the parents of any student in danger of failing a subject for the year.

 

Make Up Work/Tests

Students are responsible for initiating and completing makeup work in any/all classes missed, regardless of the reason for the absence. Make up work must be initiated and completed by the student, unless the teacher makes other arrangements with the student. Violations of this policy may result in a grade of zero (0). All makeup work should be completed with the teacher within three days of the student's return to school with the exception of tests. Makeup tests are given Tuesday through Friday at 6:30 a.m. Students must take makeup tests at the first makeup test session following their return to school. Students with multiple makeup tests are required to take a minimum of one test each morning until all tests are completed.

 

Extracurricular Activities

Students who are placed on Academic Probation or who have a "D" or "F" in conduct will not be excused from that class to participate in extracurricular activities until the next grading period. A student must also attend at least three classes per day to participate in any extracurricular activity. Legitimate exceptions to this policy may only be granted by the principal or the assistant principals. In the event payment under the monthly tuition plan is delinquent two months, a student will be removed from participation in any and all extracurricular activities.

Student should check grades on RenWeb and students on Academic Probation should meet with their academic counselor or the academic assistant principal, as well as the teacher.

Parent urged to contact the teacher in the event of Academic Probation.

Progress Reports and Report Cards are available on RenWeb according to the dates and method on the calendar. Students with a grade of D, F or I at the time are considered to be on academic probation.

1st, 2nd and 3rd quarter progress reports and quarter report cards are available on RenWeb.  Students on Academic Probation are strongly encouraged to meet with their teacher and counselor. End of the year Report Cards are mailed home.

The 1st quarter report card is available on RenWeb. Parents are notified of any student placed on Academic Probation. Parents are urged to set up a conference with the teacher and encouraged to talk with the level Guidance Counselor.

Exam Exemption Privilege

Students participating (any grade level) in state literary rally and taking a comprehensive subject test may be exempt from the final examination in the subject of their participation. Seniors with A averages for each nine weeks, and A on the mid-term exam, and all A's in conduct are eligible for exemption. In addition, students in performance classes may be exempt from exams. Exemption privilege is granted by the teacher.

 

Schedule Changes

The school will not consider a request for a change in the schedule unless a change is necessary:

a.   because of a scheduling error committed by the school
b.   or because your child is completing an academic course, which substantially affects some scheduled course, in the summer before the new school year
c.   or because he or she must take a course failed the previous school year and which was not available during the summer-school session


The student schedule is subject to change to balance student enrollment in certain classes and students may not request specific teachers. Note that poor performance in a course, dislike of the sequence of courses, or dislike of the teacher does not merit consideration for a change. Schedule change consideration will take place prior to August 1.

 

Homework

Homework assignments are given at the discretion of the teacher. Homework aids the learning process and assists the students in the development of self-discipline through effective time management. Compliance is mandatory for all student assignments. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain assignments when absent by calling fellow students. Homework assignments may be viewed by parents or students by accessing RenWeb.

 

Homework Policy

Homework assignments are available for parents and students to view in RenWeb.  Teachers also post homework assignments on the boards in their classrooms.
 

1. The purposes of homework are:

  • To ensure that work taught in class is thoroughly learned and practiced

  • To give practice in creative thinking

  • To provide opportunities for students to learn to work alone, to help themselves, to solve problems and learn self-discipline

  • To reveal to the student the weakness in his or her studies so that he or she may ask teachers how to overcome the weaknesses
     

2. Regular homework is set for each night of the school week.

  • There is no such thing as "No Homework".

  • There is always homework in the form of:

    • Revision

    • Preparation for future lessons

    • Personal research work

    • Study

    • Reading novels

    • Preparation for tests, exams, etc.

3. Some recommendations are that:

  • Homework should be constant not irregular, spaced rather than bunched

  • Homework should be interesting, enjoyable, demanding, challenging and, above all, educative and meaningful. It is not work for work's sake.

  • Homework should also be varied:

    • in action it can be reading, writing, thinking, studying, repetition, research, watching, exploring, etc.

    • in direction and scope it can be specific or vague.

    • in format it can be nightly, weekly, by quarter, assignment or project style.

  • Teachers should check and correct all homework that they assign.

  • Parents should be contacted if students repeatedly fail to do homework.

  • Parents should take an active role in monitoring homework.

4. The amount of time spent on homework will depend on the student's ability, grade, and difficulty of course.

5. All homework is graded, either for completion or, at the teacher's discretion on review material, for correctness.

 

 

ACADEMIC REMEDIATION

 

Failure/ Retention

Students failing one or two required courses, in order to return the following year, will be required to successfully make up one (1) in summer school immediately following the failure.  A minimum grade of “D” is required for successful completion of a summer school course.  Those who have failed two (2) courses will be advised as to how to remediate the second course by their guidance counselor and/or academic assistant principal. Students must be on track to meet all graduation requirements by the end of the senior year. As a result, any student failing three (3) or more required subjects for the year may not be allowed to continue as a student at Teurlings Catholic.  All summer school credits must meet Louisiana State Board of Education and Diocesan requirements.

 

Failure in Religious Studies

Teurlings Catholic High School strives to offer well-rounded study of the Christian faith as taught by the Roman Catholic Church.  A student receives full academic credit for each Religious Studies course successfully completed.  Because the study of the subject of Religious Studies is central to the identity of Teurlings Catholic High School, a failure in the subject of Religious Studies will necessitate successful completion of course objectives and requirements in a Teurlings Catholic High Summer School of Religious Studies before a student will be readmitted to TCH.  In the case of a graduating senior failing the course of Theology that student will not be granted a Teurlings Catholic High School diploma, will not participate in graduation ceremonies, and will not have any fees refunded.

Dual Enrollment Program

 

The Dual Enrollment Program, run in conjunction with Louisiana Tech University and the University of Louisiana-Lafayette, allows students to earn college credit while taking courses at Teurlings Catholic. Dual Enrollment courses are considered to be honors courses at Teurlings Catholic High School and count as such in determining honor graduate status. DE courses are currently offered in English III/IV, American History, World History, and French III. Additional Dual Enrollment courses are available through the Louisiana Virtual School and a complete listing of those courses, which require the payment of an additional $150 fee, may be obtained at www.louisianavirtualschool.net . Students interested in the program must score a minimum of a 22 on the ACT or PLAN Test in English and/or Reading as well as a minimum composite score of 20.  Students in French must have a minimum composite score of 20. All students in dual enrollment courses should maintain a minimum of a “B” average in the appropriate course area. Enrollment also requires a teacher recommendation. Grading in Dual Enrollment courses is conducted according to the university guidelines and all Dual Enrollment grades will appear on all subsequent college transcripts. Dual Enrollment grades may affect the individual student’s TOPS status during the first semester of college.

 

Fees for Dual Enrollment are set each year by the cooperating university/college and credit is issued for the colleg course by the appropriate institution, as is the college grading scale. Students, on successful completion of the course, receive credit for the high school course from Teurlings Catholic and for the college course from the university or college.

 

 

Louisiana Virtual School

LVS issues official midterm and final grades only; however, an unofficial progress report, as determined by LVS, will be included on all Teurlings Catholic progress reports and report cards. LVS grading is cumulative and, as such, the grade changes with each assignment.
7.               The course work is no more demanding than regular classes; however students must be self-disciplined and
self-motivated to be successful in completing assignments on time.
8.               All students registering for LVS courses must sign the LVS Honesty and Internet Use Policies.

Summer Testing Dates for Summer Reading (for summer 2012)

 

Wednesday – June 12, from 10-11am, in the library

Wednesday – July 17, from 10-11am, in the library

Wednesday – July 31, from 10-11am, in the library

Students need to bring pencils to testing.

 

 

All students at Teurlings Catholic are required to read novels as part of their course work in English and Social Studies classes during the regular school year and in the summer. A list of the required reading for the 2013-2014 school year will be included in your fee sheet information for student orientation (mailed in July). The required reading for the summer is listed below.

 

Students are allowed to take only one test in class during the first week of school.  Any student may test during the summer; however Honors students and students who wish to read an additional book for extra credit must take those tests during the summer. Summer test dates are from 10:00 to 11:00 AM on Wednesday, June 12; Wednesday, July 17; and Wednesday, July 31. All summer tests will be administered in the school library. The tests are a combination of objective (multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank, etc.) and essay/short answer questions. All students must take the tests and grades for these tests are included in the 1st Quarter English grade. In addition, the diagnostic essay given to students the first week of school is based on the novel. Students in the regular English classes must read one novel while students in honors classes must read the honors selection and one of the other books for the grade level. All students have the opportunity to read an additional book from the grade level for extra credit.
