titleSchool-assessed coursework

School-assessed coursework (SAC) has to take place in class time. Therefore, students must attend school for their SAC sessions.

The following rules will apply if a student is absent from a SAC session.

a.        If they were away and have a medical certificate they will be considered for Special Provision. The student will be given an opportunity to undertake a task at another time to be negotiated between the

 student, teacher and VCE Coordinator.

b.       If they do not have a medical certificate, they will get a zero for that SAC.

c.        If a student misses part of a SAC, and has a medical certificate, consideration will be given for the time lost.

d.       If a student misses part of a SAC, but does not have a medical certificate, consideration will not be given for time lost, and the work will be marked as presented.

e.       If a situation of extreme illness or hardship develops, other forms of Special Provision will be applied and other arrangements made.
