Course Policies
Students are responsible for approaching me upon their return from an absence in order to schedule
time for them to make up their work.
Bring all materials to class each day.
Profanity and cussing are not acceptable or tolerated in this class. When your classmates or the
teacher are presenting, please do not talk!
Homework for this class will mainly consist of completing any assignments that you were not able to
finish in class.
Students must be on time to class. They should be in the classroom when the bell rings. If a teacher
from another class detains a student for any reason, a note must be brought from that teacher to
excuse the tardy. After three tardies, a student is assigned a detention.
Work Area: The work area is the students’ responsibility. We share these desks with other classes so
please keep your area clean. Students will be assigned a computer station. You will always work at
that station unless you are asked to move by the teacher.
Student ID Internet Access – Students must have a school ID with an Internet sticker. You will not be
able to participate in the class if you do not have permission to access the Internet.
Cheating – Students are expected to do their own work so that they can learn the material and the
objectives of the lessons. Do not duplicate another student’s work. If you are caught cheating, you and
the student you have copied off of will receive a zero on the entire assignment.
Grading – Points are given for completed daily work, quizzes, tests and projects. The total points you
earn will be averaged with the total points possible for a grading period. Once graded papers are
returned to students, late papers will still be accepted for ½ credit.
Students’ grades will be posted on Power School and will be updated weekly. Students and parents
will be provided a password and ID number in order to log on to the program so that they can check
grades at anytime.
Extra Help and Extra credit – Individualized help will always be made available along with extra credit
opportunities. These will both be made available to students on an individual basis.

to work with students individually. Students will be encouraged to communicate with me when they feel
