Understanding that knowledge opens doors to all
students and that teachers hold one of many keys
that will unlock those doors, the math department
has determined that we will do “whatever it
takes” to help students gain a seamless understanding
of mathematics. Therefore, we have adopted the following
Rescue and Recovery protocol.
Summative Assessments:
1. Any student who is not satisfied with his or
her effort on a summative assessment may retake
the assessment. A student who fails must retake
the assessment.
2. A student retaking a summative assessment will
receive the higher grade.
3. A minimum of one (1) day support with a math
teacher is required before a second assessment will
be allowed
4. Make up must be completed prior to the next
unit assessment.
5. Only one makeup attempt will be allowed for
each summative assessment.
6. Projects that have had various progress checks
may not be redone. If there was no progress monitoring,
the assessment falls under the same procedure as
any other summative assessment.
Formative Assessments:
1. In order to be proactive in providing a successful
learning environment for all students, teachers
reserve the right to assign afterschool tutoring
on formative assessments. The procedure will be
the same as for summative assessments.
Documentation:
1. A parent contact log will be kept
by each teacher to document communication attempts
and /or contacts.
2. A log will be used to verify attendance. A student
must complete the sign in / sign out sheet. A student
will not be considered present for support if he or
she fails to sign in or sign out.
Academic Lunch:
1. A student will be assigned to academic
lunch if he or she fails to show up for tutoring after
the second scheduled date.
2. Students who consistently sleep or do not do homework
will be assigned academic lunch. A parent contact
must be made before assigning academic lunch.
3. In special cases where many attempts have been
made to contact parents, academic lunch will be assigned
until a student can provide accurate contact information
* Dismissal from academic lunch will
be a passing grade or a teacher’s approval that
the student is making an attempt to be successful.
The mathematics department concerns
itself with meeting the diverse needs of students
at Elbert County Comprehensive High. The goal of the
nine  member mathematics team is that our students
will become problems solvers, efficient communicators
of mathematics and will develop reasoning skills.
A challenge we face is to guide our students in making
connections within mathematics and other disciplines.
