All government grades to date have now been entered. Your final grade for the course cannot drop lower than your current government grade in StudentVUE. All work completed from this point can only increase your grade. You will have the opportunity to take an optional final (exam/project) at the end of the semester. This, as well, can only increase your grade. You will receive a numerical grade for government that is independent of your economics grade. The grade you receive for government comes only from work you have submitted for government class.  Your final average will count towards GPA, HOPE, class rank, etc., just like every other class. I will continue to provide content and learning opportunities and encourage you to stay engaged until the end of the semester. It is my hope you practice life-long learning and stay engaged with the course to experience risk-free learning as you prepare for courses in the future.
