Tardies: RESPECT / RESPONSIBILITY
Manage your passing period time in order to be ready for class. Being on time is an important life skill. It is a sign of responsibility and respect. Consequences for not being on time are outlined in student handbook.
Absences: RESPONSIBILITY / RELATIONSHIP
Regular attendance is very important to help you succeed in this class. When a student is absent, it is that student’s responsibility to check It’s Learning and then come to me to get the missed assignment. The student will be responsible for the notes that were given that day (talk to someone you trust for accurate notes). If you have a preplanned absence talk to me before you are going to be gone.
I will post assignments on It’s Learning on the Bulletin Board. Please refer to this when absent.
Grades are weighted as follows: Assignments 20%, Quizzes 35%, Tests 45%.
The grading scale is
