Grading Policy & Classroom Rules
Grading Policy: There are two basic types of grades in my English class: major grades (tests, projects, papers) and minor grades (daily exercises, class participation, worksheets). The gradebook weights test grades and daily grades at 50 percent each (you normally have twice as many daily grades during the six weeks as test grades). Grade reports and report cards are sent out every three weeks. Tutorials are from 12:15-12:35 each day for those who are assigned to tutorials or just need extra help.
We will follow the tardy policy in the student handbook (1st-free, 2nd- lunch detention, 3rd-lunch detention, 4th-referral to appropriate asst. principal)
Dress Code violations will be addressed/corrected
Go to the restroom before class.
Turn off cell phones during class. Ask permission to use it if it is necessary. There will be times that is acceptable to use them in class. I will pick up cell phones, if there is any unauthorized use of them in class.
The high school has implemented a new rule that states that there are to be no "ear buds" or "headphones" worn in the halls during passing periods or during class time. If you are working on something independently in my class, I may let you listen to music (as long as it does not disrupt others who are working in the class).
No food or drinks in the classroom without special permission
Always have proper materials available for class (computer, binder, reading materials, writing instruments)
Have your lessons completed on time. See the new "late work" policy for the English department. Students are responsible for keeping up with work that they miss, if they are absent.
Pay attention in class (no sleeping or goofing off).
Participate in class discussions and be respectful of others.
Cheating results in a zero on that particular assignment, a discipline referral, and contact with your parents. Please do not put me in the position of losing respect/trust in you.
Have fun and learn!!! My hope is for you to enjoy the “journey” we call “your senior year.
