COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Life Management is a class for 11th and 12th grade students. It is designed to help students to become self-sustaining adults. The class is for anyone planning to live on their own at some point, whether you are going to college or not. It involves understanding how to manage time, money, credit, career and relationships. Hopefully, that will lead to reducing stress and knowing how to manage the curves life throws you.

 

CELL PHONE POLICY:

Cell phones are NOT TO BE USED at all in the classroom! They should be turned off and not be on the desk, in your lap, hands, VISIBLE, etc. during class.  Students are not allowed to charge phones while in the classroom. Using a cell phone will result in students putting their phones in the Cell Phone Holder for the entire class. If there is a real emergency, parents need to contact the front office to let you know. This is your WARNING.

Unexcused absences follow district policy. Late policy above is in effect for all makeup work as well.
