High School Student Expectations Upon any absence, it is the STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY to meet with the teacher to discuss what was missed and how it could be made up Attend school: Please review attendance policy! Be there for your instructional minutes Prepare for ALL tests! Exams make a large portion of students’ grades– don’t make your study plan a “cram plan” Be an active learner and participant in class!
