Zeros Aren't Permitted

The ZAP Program is designed to increase the expectation of those students who choose not to complete assignments. It is an expectation of higher standards for our students by giving them an opportunity to complete assignments while still receiving some credit. Failing to turn in an assignment is a missed opportunity for the student to learn. Missed opportunities will be corrected by providing the student an extended learning opportunity in which to complete the assignment. The assignment will receive 80% of the grade scored.

When a student does not turn in the assignment(s) on time or does not make a valid attempt to complete the assignment, the following consequences will occur:

  1. The student will receive a ZAP form at the end of the class period.
  2. The student must turn in the completed assignment prior to 8:15 a.m. in the students' 1st hour class the day after the ZAP is received.
  3. If the student does not turn in the work by the designated period, the teacher forwards the ZAP form to BRAVES staff and the student will be expected to call home to inform them that he/she will be staying for ZAP and the reason they are staying. The student is expected to stay that day after school for tutoring to complete the assignment. (The day after the ZAP was given.)
  4. If a student doesn't attend ZAP, they are assigned ISS. Failure to attend ISS can lead to the student being suspended out of school. Students may be reassigned a missed ZAP detention at the discretion of the principal.
  5. If a student completes in excess of 15 ZAPs, the principal or BRAVES Coordinator may elect to schedule that student an assigned tutoring schedule to help him/her complete assignments in a timely manner.
