Weighted Grading Scale ◦ Homework constitutes 15% of a student’s grade. ◦ Tests constitutes 40% of a student’s grade. ◦ Projects are 35% of a student’s grade ◦ Daily Work/Participation will constitute 10% of a student’s grade. ◦ Extra Credit points may or may not be given during each 9 week grading period. ◦ However, I do like to add extra project points to those of you who exceed expectations.
Drills! Absolutely NO TALKING for emergency directions Fire Drill Procedures: ◦ We always will line up in a straight line at the door. I will lead you out and up the closest stairwell and outside on the sidewalk. We move in a quiet and orderly fashion, which is MUCH safer for you. Tornado Drill Procedures: ◦ For this drill, I will lead you out into the hallway. ◦ You are to have a seat against the wall with your hand protecting the wall.
Restroom Breaks ◦ Try to use the restroom before class begins. We begin promptly at 8:00. ◦ You will be given two restroom breaks during the day. This should be sufficient. ◦ If you have a medical issue related to this, then I need to have a written excuse from your doctor, please.
Deadlines To keep on the path to success, you must have homework and projects turned in on time ! Check the homework board for deadlines and write them in your student handbook.
