Online Learning: 

All class assignments, important announcements, and resources will be available on our class period's Google Classroom page. All students should already have access to our Google Classroom page; if not, please contact me. 

Attendance/Grades:

  • Attendance will be recorded every Friday after 12pm
  • To be marked present each week, students must meet or exceed the minimum engagement and task completion expectations. Both categories are explained below:
    • Minimum: Students must attempt each of the 2-3 assigned tasks for the week. This will require at least 15-20 minutes of work on each assignment.
    • Exceed: Students must complete each of the 2-3 assigned tasks for the week. This will require 30-45 minutes of work for each assignment.
  • Students who submit work after the 12pm deadline will keep their current attendance and grade until staff can adjust it the following week.

Grades: 

  • Grades will be contingent upon students meeting or exceeding the minimum engagement and task completion expectations.
    • Students who complete the minimum requirements will maintain their third quarter grades. 
    • Students who exceed the minimum requirements may improve their grades. 
    • Students who do not meet the minimum requirements may see their grades lowered.
    • Students who would like to improve their third quarter grades should work directly with their teacher.
  • In the Remote Learning section of the grade book, 
    • a score of “0” means the student did not meet the minimum expectations. 
    • a score of “1” means the student met the minimum expectations.
    • a score of “2” means the student exceeded the minimum expectations.
