    GRADING
    Participation/Attendance: 10%
    Project/Lab Assignments: 30%
    Homework/In-Class Assignments: 30%
    Tests/Quizzes: 20%
    Final/Midterm: 10%


    * All assignments are graded on a standard grading scale with
    A= 90-100%
    B= 80-89%
    C= 70-79%
    D= 60-69%
    F= 59% and Below
    When a student earns a D or F grade it is usually due to one or more of the following:
     Missed lab assignment and did not complete alternate assignment
     Did not follow directions
     Frequent tardies or absences
     Unprepared
     Uncooperative and/or disruptive to learning environment

    LATE WORK POLICY
    All assigned work must be turned in at the beginning of class. All excused tardy/absence assignments must be made up no later than 3 days after you have returned to class. Make-up assignments will not be given to unexcused absences or tardies. It is your responsibility to get make-up assignments from your teacher.
    No more than 3 make-up labs per quarter. Classroom attendance is important.

    *Students who know they are going to be absent from class due to class trips, athletic/special events must prearrange to turn in assignments or your work will be counted as late. No exceptions!

    RESPECTING YOUR CLASSROOM
    The materials, textbooks and food and supplies in the class and lab are not yours. Theft is taking anything from the classroom beyond that which is intended for your assignment. Consequences for stealing or destruction may include one or more of the following: referral, call home, alternate assignment.

    TIPS FOR SUCCESS!
     Ask questions, participate in class discussions, and follow directions.
     Turn assignments in on time. Do not wait until night/morning before to finish an assignment.
     Always have your planner with you! Use your planner to keep track of your assignment due dates.
     Give every assignment all you’ve got and don’t let a mistake get you down.

    *Academic honesty is critical to you, the student, in being successful and having a positive experience. If you choose to cheat by taking the work, idea, and/or efforts of another and present them as your own, both students will face the same consequence. All students involved will not receive a credit for the assignment and must redo the assignment to pass the course. This will also result in disciplinary action/referral. See your planner for details.
