My teacher asked, but what about the student who has done everything you've asked and still fails the grading period with a 62, what are we doing for that student...
I agree with tctrojan. If the student is really working hard, and you feel they've learned something, but just not tested well (or their average has been pulled down by an anomalous grade or two) then offer extra credit or an alternative assessment.

...and what message are we sending when we bump a 30 to a 60.
That if you don't think you're going to get higher than a 60, stop studying because you'll get bumped to a 60 anyway.
