About Late & Missed Assignments

The procedure describes responses to late and missed “major” assignments (i.e., assignments that comprise part of the critical body of evidence for evaluation and reporting purposes) for all students in Grades 7 to 12.Communication must occur between the student, parent/guardian and teacher to clarify the reason for any missed assignments.

Responses to late and missed assignments may include, but are not limited to:

  • student referral to the in-school intervention support (e.g., student success teacher, administration, special education, guidance, ESL teacher, etc.)
  • a negotiated extension
  • an alternative opportunity for the student to demonstrate the same expectations

An assignment may only receive a mark with no deductions or an incomplete (i.e., “I”). A zero may not be assigned for any missed or late assignments.

A student’s provincial report card Learning Skills and Work Habits section (e.g., Responsibility, Organization) must be used to reflect late and/or missed assignments.
