It is expected that students will use genuine, sincere, and fair means for the accomplishment of tests, tasks, or projects from which evaluations of progress shall be determined. Students found plagiarizing, copying, or cheating in any way will receive and automatic zero and phone calls will be made to their parents. In addition, students will be given a Disciplinary Referral.
I will lead a respectful and disciplined classroom. To achieve this I have established a few simple policies. As a student, it is your responsibility to comply with these policies. If you choose to break a rule, there will be consequences.
- Students will be respectful at all times. Hateful comments concerning race, gender, sexuality, appearance, etc. will not be tolerated. Students will keep their hands to themselves at all time.
- Students should be seated and prepared to work when the bell rings. This includes having all materials needed within your possession.
- In accordance with school policy, cell phones, music players, and other electronic devices are not permitted. In addition, applying make-up in class is not allowed. If seen or heard, items will be confiscated and sent to the office.
- No food or drink is allowed in the classroom. A clear closable container of water is permitted.
Students are expected to take care of all personal business during passing periods. Students should not ask for a hall pass to retrieve their book or other supplies, to see another teacher or student, get a drink of water, or other non-emergency situations, this includes restroom passes.
You should be on your absolute best behavior. When I return I expect nothing less than an outstanding report. Do what is assigned and expect it to be graded. If you choose not to complete the work assigned, you will receive a zero. Substitutes will not issue any bathroom passes and there will be no talking allowed.
