Grades will be based on written tests and student portfolio.  For additional information about the portfolio, refer to the “Portfolio” handout.

    ALL work will be graded from a standpoint of neatness, accuracy, thoroughness, proper technique, and timely completion.

    Since almost all work is done in class it is essential that you be in class every day.  You are responsible for all work missed when you are out.

    If you are absent on the day of a test you must make up the test within three days of returning to class. Your goal should be to make an 80 on all interim tests you may retake them if you are not happy with your grade.  If you fail to take a test you will receive a zero.  If you make less than a 60 on any test you may retake that test within three days.


    A = 90 - 100

    B = 89 – 80

    C = 79 - 70

    D = 69 – 60

    F = 59 - 0



    Projects - 60%

    Tests - 20%

    Quizzes - 15%

    Classwork - 5%



    The following list of classroom policies, procedures and behavior standards will help guarantee your success in my class.  These procedures should be exhibited willingly each day. 

    1. Upon entering the classroom, please go directly to your assigned seat, check the Objective for the day, check for the day’s agenda. Go to the class Canvas site and begin working.  Roll will be taken at the beginning of class.
    2. Most assignments will be uploaded to Canvas. Assignments to be handed in should be completed in pencil or black or blue ink.  You are welcome to submit your assignments on paper.  If you choose this option, you will need a notebook and all your work will be kept in that notebook.
    3. Unless it is an emergency please do not ask to leave the classroom during teacher led instruction.This is a very vital time during our class period when I am giving you new material and explaining it to you.
    4. If you need to leave the room:
      • Only ONE person is permitted to leave at a time.
      • Sign out using E-HallPass, leave your phone with me, exit the back door to the restroom.
      • EVERYTHING is to stay in the room, INCLUDING YOUR PHONE
      • Sign in upon return, and receive your phone
    5. In the event that a student completes their class assignment before the review period they can begin to work on other assigned projects or other activities.

    I may limit students’ access to the Internet if I think it is necessary.

    1. During teacher led instruction questions may be asked (or answered) by raising your hand.
    2. Remain in your seat at all times.
    3. Stay on the assigned task.
    4. NOphones in class - NO Social Media, IM, Chatting or personal E-mail via the internet.
    5. Respect the equipment – DO NOT remove or disconnect parts, cables, or labels; DO NOT rearrange keys. DO NOT personalize the computer settings. (This includes desktop, screen saver, etc.)
    6. Only games I have made for class are allowed.
    7. Refer to the Syllabus for other policies.

    All School guidelines will be followed at all times in the classroom.
