New Failure to Complete Assignment Procedures (FTCA)
There has been a new FTCA policy starting with the 2016-17 school year.  When an assignment has not been completed and turned in when due a zero will be put into powerschool with a comment indicating that the assignment was missing.  If the assignment is completed within the 5 school day grace period, it is graded for full credit, but the student must still serve the academic detention.  If the assignment is not completed within the 5 school days the zero will stay.
