Homework / Class Assignments -
Any homework or assignments that have been provided in class will be a review of material that students have already been introduced to. Students may use my online lesson videos, notes, tutorials and any other resources to complete. My philosophy on homework is not to overload the students on a daily basis. Some assignments in class may also lead into an assignment that needs to be completed at home but should not take much time out of their nightly routine. I provide plenty of time in class for students to complete assignments. Students may have assignments to complete at home only if they did not finish in class or were absent. Students may also come to tutorials for help as needed.
Late homework / Class Assignments-
Homework and or class assignments are considered late if they are not turned in by the due date provided to the student. Some assignments may be complete in class as others may be due at a later time. It is the reponsibility of the student to make sure they are keeping up with assignments and turning in on time. If a student is absent, it is their respondibility to ask for any missing assignments. All assignments will be posted to my website for students. All information, classwork, assignments are either posted to my website or google classroom; students have the material available and therfore there should be no reason for it not to be complete or for a student to say they did not receive it.
Assignments turned in:
On due date - full credit
1 day after due date - student will receive 10 points off of assignment
2 days after due date - student will receive 15 points off of assignment
3 days after due date - student will receive 30 points off of assignment
4+ days after due date - assignments will be accepted however the highest grade possible is a 70
Assignments can only be turned in during the grading period they are assigned. For example, if a student is missing an assignment from the beginning of the 9-weeks, the last day to turn in that assignment for any credit is the last day of that grading period.
Correcting work -
Everyone in class is allowed/encouraged to correct every assignment OR test/quiz that is below as 70. Students Must follow the corrections guidelines that are posted in my classroom, glued in their journals and can be found here. Correction Work
Corrections can only be turned in during the grading period they are assigned. For example, if a student has an assignment from the beginning of the 9-weeks, the last day to turn in corrections for that assignment for any credit is the last day of that grading period.
Eligibility will be determined on Friday mornings. Therefore, any missing work or corrections need to be turned in no later than Wed. to be graded and put in the gradebook in time to be considered for eligibility requirements.
It is expected that the environment in our class is a positive, respectful atmosphere. We will have lots of fun in this class but students are expected to maintain and manage their behavior so that the learning environment is not disrupted.
Students that disrupt the learning environment in the classroom may be assigned a mandatory detention, based on the severity of the disruption. Detentions may only be served before or after school at my convenience. If a student rides a tutorial bus and a detention is given on a day that there are no buses, the student must contact the parent and make transportation arrangements. This will hopefully create a conversation between both the parent and the student of how consequences cause inconveniences to more that just the student. Detentions are 30-minutes long. During this time, students may be asked to work on assignments that will enhance their math skills or work on assignments/concepts that the student may need help with.
Students will receive two warnings prior to a detention assigned. After the two warnings, a mandatory detention is assigned to the student. The second detention includes a phone conversation with the parent/guardian. The third consequence is a face to face meeting with the parent/guardian. The forth consequence is a write-up and a meeting with the Assistant Principal.
