Classroom Management Plan

All rules and discipline action stated in the district's student discipline plan are applied in this classroom.

In order to create and maintain an environment conducive to learning, you are expected to: * Be in class BEFORE the tardy bell rings. See Classroom Tardy Policy.

* Stay in your seat while the lesson is being presented.

* DO NOT stand in the doorway waiting for the bell to ring. (You MUST stay in your seat until the bell rings.)

* No candy, gum, drinks or foods are allowed in the classroom.

* Any type of disruption that interferes with learning or

prevents the teacher from teaching, will not be tolerated. (This includes talking, surfing the net, passing notes, etc.)

Follow these class rules and we will have an awesome  year!

  1. Behave in a way that allows you and others to learn.

  2. Bring the necessary supplies to class: 

    laptop, pencils, paper and any materials needed.

               Grading Policy 

I follow the district grading policy of 50% for daily work, and 50% for tests and other major projects.  Each 6-weeks you will have at least 9 daily grades and 3 test or project grades.  These will be recorded in the grade book (online) as the assignments are completed.
State law requires that you receive the grade you earn in this class.  If you fail a test or a daily assignment, you may retake the test, or correct daily work within 1 day of when it was due.  It is your responsibility to come in to retest, or correct daily assignments. Daily work and tests can be corrected up to a 70%.   If you do not turn in your corrections, or retest within the 1-day period, the original grade will remain.  Assignments turned in late for any reason other than absences will NOT be accepted, under any circumstances.  It is your responsibility to do your work and turn it in on time.  I seldom give homework.  All assignments are to be done in class so I can monitor and help with any questions you might have.
Work not turned in due to absences will be accepted without penalty according to district policy (i.e. the number of days absent plus one day).  Additional time may be given depending on the circumstances.  Each case is considered on an individual basis. After the final day of a grading period ( the end of the six weeks) late work will not be accepted.

Please keep in mind I am here to help you succeed.  See me immediately or come in during tutorial time if you have trouble understanding subject matter or assignments.  

Learning a second language can be very beneficial  to your future
