Student Expectations
Regular Attendance is an important component of learning and will comprise of 60% of
the formative assessment of this course. Students and parents are responsible for
providing a note when absent from class. Since arriving late to class is disruptive and
unacceptable at CWDHS, all lates will be recorded and consequences will be imposed.
Students’ progress is always directly impacted by failure to complete assessment checks
and evaluation opportunities. Any skipped assessment or evaluation will be assigned 0%.
For legitimate absence, students are responsible for consulting with the teacher before, if
possible, or immediately upon return to class. Students are responsible for consulting with
the teacher about work to be made up to regain marks deducted for missed evaluations.
All assessments and evaluations are assigned within a reasonable ‘window of opportunity’
for submission. It is the student’s responsibility to consult with the teacher before the
window closes if they are unable to complete their work on time.
Participation is a major component of this course. The students are responsible to make
sure they bring the required equipment to participate in each of the ice sessions. If a
student is unable to participate they MUST report to the arena and may be given an
alternate assignment to complete.
Positive participation includes appropriate contributions to classroom activities,
attendance and attitude. Students are expected to participate in a positive way to the best
of his/her ability.
