2019-2020 Student Policies Advocacy at Richard Montgomery 

Please review the following link related to our updated attendance policies (March 9, 2020). The information was emailed to parents on March 5, 2020 and relayed to students over the morning announcements on March 6, 2020.

Check out this document to see how students, parents, and staff all work together to advocate for the needs of our students. 

Student Agenda Book (2019-2020 Information, policies, and regulations). Students should also review the student handbook for additional information about policies and procedures.

Please note the revised department assessment days outlined below, effective immediately. This list is to ensure students do not have an overwhelming number of assessments on any given day:

  • Monday: Social Studies, World Languages
  • Tuesday: English/ESOL, Science/Tech Ed
  • Wednesday: Math, Social Studies
  • Thursday: World Languages, English/ESOL
  • Friday: Science/Tech Ed, Math

*Physical Education (PE) and the Arts may give an assessment on any day of the week.


With respect to this policy, an assessment is a major formative or summative assessment covering multiple skills or standards, or units/chapters. Exit cards and other checking-for-understanding assessments are not considered major formative and summative assessments. Major assessments may fall under the formative, summative, or test/quiz grade book categories. A major assessment may be, but is not limited to, an exam, test, quiz, or project. If a teacher or PLC decides to delay an assessment based on student preparedness, data, or other factors, the assessment must be moved to the next available department day. If unexpected or external factors beyond a teacher’s control (weather, holiday) delay a teacher or PLC’s assessment, the teacher(s) will work collaboratively with their class(es) to determine the next most appropriate day to administer the assessment.
