MY CLASS RULES
Homework is assigned in advance to allow for scheduling needs. Students are required to turn work in on time. With an excused absence, students may take one day per day excused for make-up work. Large projects assigned for set presentation dates MUST be turned in on-time electronically. Late work can be completed at Scholar Hour for full credit.
MY GRADING POLICY
Quizzes, tests, and assessments are worth 60% of student grades. Homework and classwork are worth 40%. Students are given weekly quizzes to track progress. If students have all work turned in by the end of the quarter, quiz grades will be altered to reflect their most recent learning.
SCHOLAR PROGRAM (Tutoring)
High school tutors from KM volunteer tutor/mentoring hours on
Thursdays from 3:-4:30 in my classroom. Students receive bonus points towards work for participation.
I have a tardy policy on the door outside. Late students wait
quietly to be retrieved (1st 5 minutes of class). They must sign in on the clip board when they arrive. If they are disruptive, their infraction changes from a minor attendance issue to a Skyward disciplinary issue.
Students have a quarterly bathroom pass. It has 4 squares. When they request to leave for the bathroom or water, (excluding 10 minutes before or after bells), their sheet will be initialed. They must sign in/out on the clipboard for safety purposes, (In case there’s a drill or lockdown). If students choose not to uses their 4 quarterly passes, they may save them for points to be used towards make-up work.
STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO LEAVE FOR LOCKERS/OFFICE /OTHER TEACHERS….
If they are needed someone will call for them. All personal needs must be handled during passing time. They are allowed to come late with a pass only.
