Classroom Procedures and Syllabus

Restroom and Nurse:

You may ask by using the “restroom signal”. Only one student will be allowed to go at a time. If you are given permission, you will sign the Restroom Log and take the jacket. If you need to see the nurse, you may notify me privately.

Sharpen my pencil:

You may ask by holding up your pencil. Do not get up out of your seat without permission.

Syllabus

Second Semester

We will continue on with the District Math Curriculum - C-SCOPE Units 7 - 12.

District Mandated Mini-Assessments will be given every Friday afternoon. The C-SCOPE Assessments will be at the end of each Unit.

Tutoring will be provided on a weekly basis after school. Any student who needs extra assistance, help with missed/late work, or lessons missed when absent are encouraged to attend.

Grading Policy - 1) A minimum of three grades will to be entered per week. Grades must reflect student mastery of TEKs. 2) A weekly Grade level Team common assessment will be given to each student. The assessments may be EISD designated CSCOPE unit tests, EISD Benchmarks, GLP designed assessments.

50% Formative grades (Daily Work, Participation, Homework, Interactive Student Notebook)

50% Summative grades (CSCOPE Unit Assessments, Projects, Performance Indicators)

Homework Policy- Homework will be given in a weekly packet.

Wednesday- Math

Thursday- Math
