Assignments: Principles of Information Technology

Full Width School related picture


I reserve the right to modify and change any day's lesson plan as needed to ensure the objectives are being met.  This could mean that the lessons will proceed slower some days and faster others.

All students are to be responsible for making up any missed assignments, whether absence is excused or not.  Knowledge of how to use computer is like building a house.  You need the foundation before you start on the walls or roof!  The student is responsible for checking this website for assignments as well as looking on Schoology/Google Classroom for 2020-2021.  All missed work is counted as zero (0) until completed and graded.
