Grades will be determined on a percentage based system where each category will be worth a certain percentage towards your nine weeks grade. The following list shows each category and its weight toward your grade.
Cheating is not acceptable in my classroom. When a student is caught cheating they will recieve a zero for the assignment, a referral, and a call home to parents. Your work must be completed by YOU, cheating makes it harder for me to determine what you know and what you don't know.
You have the opportunity to make-up assignments and tests if your assignment or test grade is below a 70. You will be given one week to make up assignments and tests; this allows you time to re-study while the material is still fresh in your mind and/or arrange a ride to come before school (with an appointment scheduled) or after school. It is your responsibility to inform me if you cannot make-up a test or assignment during the given week in order for us to arrange a time that is best for you. IF I DO NOT KNOW I CANNOT HELP.
Tutorials are held before school by appointment or after school. If you plan on attending tutorials please inform me when you will be attending to insure i will be in my classroom. Students need to be in my classroom 5 minutes after the bell releases the school at the end of the day. This allows for an effective tutorial session.
After School: Tuesday-Thursday 2:40-3:05
