FAQs Concerning School Closure:

  • How will school closure affect an Achievement Center student’s final grade, if my student is failing?

If a student is currently failing a course but has completed all required course work required up until March 17, the student will automatically be assigned unit recovery for assignments with the lowest grades.  If a student is currently failing a course and have not completed the required course work, they will need to complete the remainder of the course work by May 8. If time permits after the course work has been completed, teacher will reset test in order to improve student grades.  Only assignments covered between January 7 and March 13 can be recovered.

If your student does not have access to the electronic device, please contact Coach Dawson, by email: ddawson@colquitt.k12.ga.us or by text 229-529-9050 to inform him that you do not have access. Please include student’s name and parent and/or guardian name. I will arrange for device pickup. Parent/guardian will sign a contract that outlines device responsibility and return.

The teachers will update the grade in Infinite Campus after all the work has been completed.
 
  • My student is passing, can my student improve their final grade?

Student that want to bring their grades up must have completed all the required work (from January 7, 2020 to March 13, 2020) for the other courses prior to going back to bring their grade up in another course.

Lab teachers will look back in the required course work and reset the test with the lowest grades. This will allow the grade to increase at a faster rate.
 
  • How do I contact my child’s lab teacher?

Middle school students should email the teacher for their grade level (6th grade: Mrs. Moore, 7th grade Mr. Walker, and 8th grade Mr. Garner) and ask that a test or quiz be reset. The email should include: Course Name, What Chapter, and Name of Quiz or Test. (Ex.: Jordan Dawson, History, Chapter 2, Quiz: The Changing Ways of Life and Thought)
 
9th thru 12th grade students should email their lab teacher and ask that a test or quiz be reset. The email should include: Course Name, What Chapter, and Name of Quiz or Test.
(Ex.: Jordan Dawson, World History B, Chapter 2, Quiz: The Changing Ways of Life and Thought)

Teachers will check their email between the hours of 10:00 am and 2:00 pm
