It is each student’s responsibility to come to class prepared. In addition to being in proper uniform, I expect the following items to be brought to class each day.
Pass Book, Paper, pencil, 3-ring binder
(located in file cabinet in our classroom).
The entire student population at CVCC in in a uniform appropriate
for their class. The Success Academy will be wearing a grey polo shirt and/or a
black zip-up hooded sweatshirt.. These
are included in you class fees of $55.00.
Your grade in this class will be made up of the following:
70% - Employability, Attendance, Classwork, Preparedness – Students will
receive a grade daily in this class. Grades may cover class assignments, use of time for intervention/exploration, time to work on assignments, class participation or class projects. If the work done in class cannot be made up on an individual basis outside of class, you can complete an alternate assignment found on classroom in order to capture the missed points.
30% - Tests and quizzes as well as larger projects will be entered here.
Excessive absences will result in failure of the course. A valid excuse is required before any make-up work will be accepted. Refer to your handbook for official attendance policies.
MAKING UP MISSING ASSIGNMENTS
Classwork is not given to
keep you busy. It is assigned so you the
student can practice concepts that will enable you to find success. I use the
following guidelines when evaluating late assignments.
- ISR is not an excuse for not completing assignments. It is your responsibility to get your assignments prior to spending time in ISR. The best way to fix this is by not being there in the first place.
- Each day absent allows for a day to make up the missed work. However, it would be to your advantage to make up the work immediately in order to catch back up.
CLASS ROOM POLICIES
I adhere to the board approved policies located in your student handbook.
Daily requirements are
student handbook (Students must have their student handbook with them to utilize a pass.), uniform, and writing utensil. Students not having
these items will have their daily grade (Employability) reduced by half.
I do not allow the use of cell phones in my class at any time. I do not want to see them out or being used. If there is a need for a parent phone call, they can contact my room directly or you can use the phone to call out. If I do see them out, your daily grade will be reduced by half. I treat my classroom as a work environment. Cell phones are not allowed.
