 Be ready and willing to learn. Start each day with a great attitude! J
 Be respectful and courteous to everyone, this includes yourself!
 Listen and follow directions the first time.
 Class Rules:
 No food or drinks…except BOTTLED water.
 No cell phones, no iPods. Any unauthorized electronics visible during school hours, in use or not, is a violation.

 Be prepared and participate in class. No sleeping!
 Speak at appropriate times.
 Do not pack up until the bell rings or line up at the door.
 Follow all rules set forth in the student handbook.

 Test Procedures:
 Quizzes/Tests should be completed in PENCIL ONLY
 Any talking while ANY quiz/test is still out may result in a zero.
 Write legibly! If I cannot read OR find your answer, it will be marked incorrect.
VII. What is the “Do Over” Policy?
The “Do Over” is a reassessment. In order for the student to take advantage of the “Do Over” to improve a major assessment, the following requirements must be met:
 Attempt the original assessment
 Study assignments that support the instruction prior to the initial assessment
Reassessments will usually take place within a week after the original assessment. The highest grade attainable is a 70.
VIII. MakeUp Work:
It is YOUR responsibility to get your makeup work when you are out. If you have any questions over the material that was covered while you were out, you will need to make arrangements to see me before or after school to get caught up. Do NOT ask me during class to reteach you!
 If we take a quiz/test the day you are absent, it is YOUR responsibility to schedule a time to make it up.
 If you are present for instruction, but are absent for a review day and/or Quiz/Test day, you will be expected to take the Quiz/Test the day you return to class.
VIIII. Tutoring:
 Times by appointment. Be proactive and schedule help before you fall behind.
 Tutoring is available ONLY to students who participate in class, take notes, and complete homework assignments.
 Bring SPECIFIC questions/problems. Do not expect me to reteach a section without having your notebook and notes.
 Daily Work:
Daily work will be checked at the teacher’s discretion. Daily work may be checked for completion or for completion/accuracy.
 Extra Credit:
We do NOT give extracredit to anyone for any reason. However, there may be opportunities for bonus point on tests.
IIX. Passes:
Each student will be given 14minute pass per week to use during the semester. These passes will be blocked out on their agenda. You MUST have YOUR AGENDA to go anywhere and no additional passes will be issued during a given week…so use it wisely!!!
