During Class:
Students are expected to remain in their seats during direct instruction.
Students needing help during individual or group work should look at materials and resources or ask group members before asking the teacher.
All students are expected to focus on instruction and participate fully in class activities. Students who have finished their work are expected to help others or complete additional tasks to practice for mastery of learning goals.

End of Class:
Students will not pack up or put materials away before the last 5 minutes of class unless directed by the teacher. Students will contribute to the cleanliness or orderliness of the room.

Bathroom breaks:
Students are encouraged to plan accordingly for restroom breaks as class time is essential to practicing for mastery of learning goals.
Students will be permitted to use the restroom during non-direct instructional times only. Students will be expected to sign out and in on the hall pass log. Abusing this privilege can directly impact the student's ability to master the learning goals and may result in the removal of this privilege or the use of an escort to the restroom.


Late Assignments:
Assignments are due at the beginning of class. Students will be recommended for Academic Lunch Detention in order to submit late assignments. These assignments will be accepted within 10 days after the due date for a maximum credit of 50%. Work that is turned in more than 10 days late will receive a zero.

Makeup Work:

Students will be allowed to makeup work according to district policy. All work and class activities will be communicated through weekly newsletters on Canvas. Students are responsible for checking this resource to see what was missed and asking any questions about the assignment. Extra credit is given periodically.

Tardy Policy:
Tardies are not acceptable as they disrupt learning. All students must be in the classroom when the bell finishes ringing. Students who are not in class by the time the bell finishes ringing should be sent to the Tardy Table for a pass. A student who is later than five minutes to class is no longer considered tardy, but skipping, unless an excused admit is provided. Students will be subjected to classroom and school-wide disciplinary action as a result of tardiness.

Seating Assignments:

Seats will be assigned and can be changed at any time. Seating is based on effective grouping and may change according to activity. Students should be in their assigned seats at all times.

Electronic devices, including and not limited to headphones, must be turned off and out of sight during class, except when approved for educational purposes. If at any time these devices are seen or heard outside of approved times, you will be subject to a lunch detention and/or a referral may be issued, depending on the number of violations.

Academic Honesty:

Any type of academic dishonesty is unacceptable. Academic dishonesty includes giving or receiving answers on any type of assignment (homework, essay, quiz, test, etc.), plagiarism, and providing information about assessments to other students. Academic dishonesty will result in a zero on the assignment, and a disciplinary referral. In addition, the instructor will write negative recommendations for organizations such as the National Honor Society and Student Government, for anyone who fails to display academic integrity.

Food and Drink:
Food and drink are not permitted in the classroom.
