What are the policies on teachers withholding (not entering and putting a zero) as a grade for students who have missing assignm

Asked over 1 year ago - Gilbert, AZ

The teacher refuses to add the grade to the gradebook until all assignments are turned in, yet refuses to provide the missing assignments? What can I do?

Additional information

The test wasn't lost, but she has the actual score, and yet refuses to enter it.
