Coronado Orchestras Grading Policy: Students should be prepared to play alone in class for chairs or a grade on any day. Participation, performances, and rehearsals will comprise the grade. Students who miss a rehearsal will be given the opportunity to make up the rehearsal grade by practicing before school or at lunch; makeups must be scheduled by appointment with the orchestra director. Make ups will be allowed until the end of the grading period. Everyone who has signed up for the Coronado Orchestra is a member of the orchestra, but not everyone can or will perform. Like in other activities, some people are not ready to perform. Students who cannot successfully perform their concert or contest music may be asked not to perform. Students who miss rehearsals may also be asked not to perform. Students who have to miss a performance due to an illness, emergency or conflicting school activity, will write an essay to earn the grade for the missed performance. This will be due on the next class day on which the student returns.
