Excused absences: Students are expected to access missed material on website as soon as possible and contact teacher on the day that they return to school and complete items within two days. Assignments from Excused Absences will be marked missing until student submits the items that were missed, then it will either be scored as "Turned In" and "Exempt" if it was graded on participation or graded accordingly, for full credit, if it was graded on performance. 

Unexcused absences Students are expected to access missed material on website as soon as possible and contact teacher on the day that they return to school and complete items within two days.
Assignments from Unexcused Absences will be marked "missing" until student submits the items that were missed. If it was graded on performance, then it will be scored and marked down 10% for first unexcused absences and -20% there after. If items were graded on participation, then students will receive zero points until the missed amount of time has been used to learn the missed content and demonstrate learning of content, during student off-hours, with the teacher or on study deck. 


Absence due to Tardiness: Scores of learning tasks from participation will be pro-rated according to the amount of class that was missed. Points can be made up when 
amount of time that has been used to learn the missed content and demonstrate learning of content, during student off-hours, with the teacher or on study deck. 
 

Late Work: Late items from when students are present in class, will be marked as missing until submitted, where it will be changed to "Turned In" until graded; grading of Late Submissions are prioritized behind On-Time submissions.

Cell Phones and Headphones
All Items used to enhance learning tasks are welcomed and encouraged. All items distracting from learning are prohibited.  Scores based on 
Participation in Formative Learning Tasks
 will be deducted. Cell phones and headphones are expected to be stored away and out of site
before entering the classroom
, unless being used directly for the learning task.

 
Hall Use: Hall use is expected to be used for going to the closest bathroom or drinking fountain. Hall use abuse may result in deductions
from scores based on participation in learning tasks.

Notebooks: Completion and organization of notebooks are vital to the class. Keep track of them and use them to study, focusing on the daily questions and use quiz scores (un-weighted score in grade book) to focus studying on areas in need of improvement and to predict test score.
