I was alerted to a new potential school policy on my first day back from a long, restful summer break (by the way, welcome back, Chadwick).
“Extensions on homework assignments and minor assessments will typically be handled by teachers on a case-by-case basis. Extensions on major assessments (as opposed to daily homework) based on co-curricular school sanctioned commitments that can be anticipated (i.e. performing arts or athletics) will be restricted to one extension per class per year and should be requested at least 48 hours in advance of the original deadline.”
For clarification, here are the facts. According to Head of the Upper School, Mark Wiedenmann, “There is no “new” policy, and extensions are decided by individual faculty members using their best judgment.”
