* The teacher reserves the right to alter or change any part of this course syllabus to better suit the need of the students.

CLASSROOM/BEHAVIOR EXPECTATIONS:

Rules:

  • 1. Respect yourself, your teacher and your classmates.

  • 2. Follow all school rules. *no eating, no cell phones, no electronic devices, etc*

  • 3. Listen for and adhere to all directions the first time they are given.

  • 4. Dispose of all trash in the proper receptacle.

  • 5. Do not ask to leave the classroom for any reason other than a true emergency.

Expectations:

  • 1. Come prepared for class every day.

  • 2. Complete all work in a timely manner.

  • 3. Use the time I give you in class wisely. I will give you plenty of time in class to complete the majority of your work. If you do not use that time, you will be at a disadvantage & must complete assignment on your own time.

  • 4. Ask questions if you do not understand something.

POLICY FOR LATE ASSIGNMENTS:

Each student is expected to complete all assignments in the allotted time. Late assignments

are penalized.

MAKE-UP WORK POLICY:

All students will be provided an opportunity to make up missed assignments, regardless of the reason for absences. Make-up work must be done AT HOME or AT LUNCH, NOT during valuable class time.

It is the student’s responsibility to initiate the make-up work for missed assignments, tests, and classwork. Students must assume responsibility for obtaining the required information and making necessary arrangements with the teacher. Parents should assist their child with requests for make-up work and other missed assignments and tests.

IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO OBTAIN AND COMPLETE MAKE-UP WORK. Opportunities to complete makeup work at lunch will be provided and are mandatory.

MULTIPLE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SUCCESS POLICY:

If a student turns in an assignment that receives a failing mark, the student has the

opportunity to redo the assignment. Exclusions may apply as decided at the discretion of the instructor. The student must conference with the teacher within one week after receiving the failing grade. After conferencing with the instructor, the assignment will be given back to the student to redo. The assignment must be completed and returned within one week after the conference. It is the student’s responsibility to take advantage of the

redo policy.

At the end of 2 weeks, students will no longer have the option to redo

assignments.
