Syllabus and Classroom Procedures
Students are expected to:
(1) Arrive to class on time, ready to learn
(2) Show respect for themselves, other students, the teacher, and the entire school
(3) Complete all assignments either in the classroom and/or for homework
Disruption of class time will not be tolerated. Students who insist upon disrupting the teaching and learning environment will face the consequences of their decisions. Disciplinary measures will include: student conference, phone call to parents, after-school detention in the classroom, lunch detention, School or Team OCS, and/or D-TAP. All disciplinary problems will be reported home to a parent/guardian either by phone call, letter, or home visit by the teacher.
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 pass. If you need to see the nurse, you may notify me privately.
You may ask by holding up your pencil. Do not get up out of your seat without permission.
