Classroom Policies

Late Work:

  • Students are allowed 2 days to complete and assignment after the due date.
  • If work is completed late online, students MUST complete a late slip in order to receive credit on powerschool (see important documents).

Absent Work:

  • MOST absent work can be found online on Digits. Students are responsible for their own absent work and should still check the class folders located in the front of the room to see if there were any paper handouts that they missed.

Grading:

Homework (20% of grade): 

  • Digits homework is taken for an accuracy grade. Be sure to utilize tools such as "View an Example", "Help Me Solve This", and "Similar Question" in order to earn the best grade possible!

 In-Class (30% of grade):

  • Skills checks are given after every 2-3 lessons completed in class. Skills checks are on paper and are open note, open book, open [paper] homework. Students will not be able to access Digits during a skills check, they cannot be retaken. 

Tests (50% of grade):

  • Notes are not allowed on tests. Tests are on Digits. Be sure to have all homework assignments completed for the chapter prior to taking the test!

Retake Policy:

  • Only tests can be retaken. Both forms under "important documents" on the site hub must be completed prior to retaking a test. All assignments for the chapter must be completed as well, and students have one week to complete a retake.
  • To schedule a retake, students must meet with me first to agree upon a day and time.
