Dear Parent(s) or Guardian(s):
I will be your child’s Algebra teacher for this school year. In order to guarantee your child and all the students in my classroom the excellent educational climate they deserve, I have developed policies/procedures for the classroom that will be in effect at all times.
In my classroom, students must comply with the following rules:
1. Follow teacher directions and School Policies.
3. Actively participate in your education of mathematics
The following are the Positive Reinforcements:
2. Notes/Call Home
3. Rewards (Individual/Class)
If a rule is broken, the following consequences will apply:
1. Verbal Warning/Clarification of Rules
2. Stage 1 Referral/ Teacher-Student Conference
3. Call Parent(s)/Guardian(s)
4. Parent(s)/Guardian(s) Conference
5. Referral to Administrator
NOTE: If a student is severely disruptive, student will be referred to an administrator.
Classwork/Homework is absolutely essential to succeed in this class. All students cannot be successful in Mathematics without practice. Failure to pay attention in class and failure to complete assignments are failing behaviors. My students are required to take notes and keep them organized in a notebook. Please ask to see notes, assignments, and assessments from time to time.
Attendance: When a student is absent, he/she is required to report that excused/unexcused absence(s) to the school’s Attendance Office. STUDENTS are responsible for making up any missed work.
Grading Policy: 50% - Summative - Tests/Projects/Presentations
25% - Formative - Quizzes/Engagement
15% - Formative - Homework/Assignments
10% - Formative - Notebook
In order for this plan to have its greatest effect, I need your support. Please read and discuss the information from their class syllabus with your child. Also, please assist me with filling out your information on the lines provided below.
I hope that your child has a great year as my student. Please feel free to call me or schedule an appointment by calling 444-8300 (ext. 3746). My conference is from noon to 1 pm daily.
