If you choose to use an alternate assessment such as portfolios, products, performances, research papers, or projects; the assessment may take multiple days to complete. Makeup exams will be given the week of October 10th -12th.
Exams will not exceed 20 percent of the nine weeks grade. The exam may be a lower percentage if desired.
The schedule for the exams will be as follows:
Wednesday 10/3 - Elective and P.E. classes

Required Examinations: Comprehensive assessments for all middle school students are administered at the end of each nine weeks. Written examinations or other assessment techniques that measure student mastery of the nine weeks content may be used. Assessments may include portfolios, products, performances, research papers, or projects. Nine-week assessments should count no more than twenty (20) percent of the nine- week grade. The term grade will be determined from the average of the two nine-weeks’ grades.
Flu Season is HERE!
This information is from the county board to all of our Brookwood family. We encourage ALL pf you to wash your hands for at-least 20 seconds, while creating friction with hands (See link for hand washing tips -https://www.cdc.gov/handwashing/when-how-handwashing.html). We also encourage ALL to cover coughs and sneezes thoroughly with the bend of the arm/ elbow and to avoid water fountains, which can often be a breeding ground for germs.
If your child has a fever, please do not send him or her to school. Also, if you experience any flu-like symptoms, please consult with your physician. We hope that this will help to quell the spread of germs and keep the flu at bay for all of us.
