non discrimination policy statement
It is the policy of The New Bohemian Innovation Collaborative, Inc. that no person shall be excluded from participation in, or denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under, any program or activity of The New Bohemian Innovation Collaborative, Inc., d/b/a DeltaV Code School, on the ground of race, color, national origin, handicap, sex, or age.
Disciplinary Action for Low Grades
Code 201, Code 301, and Code 401 students who maintain point totals of less than 90% of their potential points are considered to be underperforming. Because of the wide variety of circumstances and possible appropriate remedies, DeltaV Code School gives its instructors broad latitude for handling students with grades below 90%.
For example, students with less than 70% of available points in a course can be excused from the program. Students between 70% and 90% may be given a verbal or written warning, if it appears they will have difficulty in completing the course.
DeltaV Code School provides only a pass/fail transcript and does not assign letter grades to each student. However, to monitor student progress throughout each program, DeltaV Code School uses a point-based grading system that is introduced to the students on the first day of each program.
Students receive a specified number of points for assignments, quizzes, projects, participation, lighting talks, and/or other deliverables during the program. Program instructors maintain and update point totals throughout the program such that students can log in to the system and view their scores.
Instructors do not assign grades on any curve or adjusted system; all points are assigned completely based on completion of assignments and quality of work and energy invested.
