M AKE - UP P OLICY All makeup work is given per the student handbook and attendance rules. Absences the day before a test (except excused extended absences) will not excuse a student from taking a test. Missed quizzes and tests will be taken the day that the student returns. Any work assigned before the absence will be due the day the student returns. It’s the student’s responsibility to make-up assignments. Students are responsible for all announcements and material covered in class when absent. Continuous absences / tardiness to class have proven to be a factor for poor performance in this course.
E XTRA H ELP Please seek help as soon as possible if you are having difficulty, do not wait until the day of a quiz/test. I will be available for extra help; please let me know in advance if you are coming for help, as I may have other obligations. Please note that homework may be graded for completeness and/or accuracy, or as a quiz!! Math tutoring is available before and after school. Also, I update my school webpage daily with homework, quizzes, tests, and additional help for the course. BE SURE TO CHECK IT!!

Come in before or after school for 10 minutes to clean desks/ whiteboard. -If there is a medical situation bring in a doctor's note, or ask your parent to contact me.
Test Policies -You will have one test retake each ½ of a year. -This is only for an exam you have failed -Stipulations- failed exam must be signed by guardian, you have to meet with me before or after school for tutoring -Cheating will result in a 0 for the test, no retake and reported to the appropriate administrator
The Testing chain Each day you can earn two links. The numbers 1 and 2 will be written on the board. If the class is talking when they shouldn’t be talking, or too loud a number will be erased and you will not get all of the links for the day.
