Class Rules and Procedures
All students will be expected to be in class daily.
4. The Consumable Textbooks will be kept in the classroom. The student will tear out each
section and place in their binder as needed.
Students will sign a discipline book for not following the above procedures. 3 signatures will result in a discipline write-up that will be sent to the office.
Your nine weeks average will be determined in the following manner.
Daily Work/Quiz Grades………60%
All daily work assignments must have the student’s name, class title, and the date of the assignment in the top right hand corner of the paper.
Any test with a grade lower than a 70 may be corrected for up to a 70. Test corrections are to be done in class with me. It is the students responsibility to make sure the corrections are done.
Late Homework Policy
1 day late...thirty points off (70 will be the highest possible grade)
Students are responsible for any assignments they will miss due to an extracurricular activity before they are absent. If you do not get the assignment before you are absent or do not turn it in on the due date, the late work policy will be followed. That means if you have a competition on Thursday, you need to get your assignments on Wednesday. If also means that when you return to school on Friday, it is due immediately upon entering class. No exceptions.
