Class Policies and Procedures
Members of the class must demonstrate respect to all class
participants. As individuals with our own beliefs and values
we will not always agree about everything; however, we must
show one another the respect we would expect in return. We
will discuss and clarify what respect looks like in class.
Members of the class will put forth 100% of what they can
give that day. We will all have off days, but it’s important to
try our best.
Members of the class will arrive on time to class with all
needed materials.
The instructions for class will be on the board at the
beginning of class each day. Please come in prepared and
ready to learn.
Cell phones will be placed in the cell phone holder in the
back of the room for all tests and exams.
Leaving the classroom will be limited by bathroom passes;
you will receive 2 bathroom passes every six weeks.
Bathroom passes are worth 5 bonus points each if you
choose not to use them.
