Grading

Late Work/Make-Up Policy

Late work may be graded at half the value of earned points. All work is due when the first bell rings for class. Being even a little bit late will be late work (Hint, be in your seat when the bell rings with any homework already completed). Submitted work and assessments may not be re-done (no retakes).

Copying, Cheating, and Plagiarism

Students are expected to do their own work. The definition of cheating includes, but is not limited to, copying or lending assignments; communicating, in any way, during a test; using notes in a situation where notes are not acceptable; plagiarism (the intentional or unintentional failure to give clear credit to the author of any word/ideas not your own) in any form (individual/group work). Because these types of behavior involve submitting other people's work, credit cannot be given for this type of work. Because assignments and exams may not be re-submitted, copying, cheating, and plagiarism will result in loss of credit for those assignments, projects, and/or exams.

Attendance

All school attendance policies apply in this class. These policies are changing and evolving in the district, with that, the easiest way to comply is to show up and engage during all sessions. Show up promptly during scheduled class meetings and stay until you are dismissed.

Classroom Distractions and Disruptions (The Rules)

We are here to learn. Behavior and actions that distract from the learning of any student are not acceptable. It is necessary to demonstrate respect for other students, teachers, the classroom space. If we all demonstrate this respect for each other and our classroom, there will be no disruptions. All school rules and policies apply to this room. Most of these rules are covered in your student handbook. Others, such as masking and social distancing requirements are rapidly changing and evolving. Please make every effort to keep up with these changes.
