    Classroom Rules
    Rules
    • Be in the room on time. Begin the opening activity immediately. When you are tardy, sign in, and if you have a pass, put it in the mug.
    • Be prepared. No passes will be given for forgotten materials. No passes will be given for forgotten materials. You have 5 passes for the bathroom and 5 passes for late assignments - use them wisely. All food and drink should be disposed of before class. Electronic devices need to out of sight and quiet.
    • Be in your seat listening unless given permission or instructed to do otherwise.
    • Be a positive participant. Be involved in the class discussions– give answers and/or ideas. Take notes. Correct your work. Seek help when you have questions.
    • Be a person of character.
    • Be aware of the policies in the student handbook. They apply in this classroom.

    Consequences:
    Most minor infractions will receive 1 verbal warning. A second infraction will result in a detention to be served by the following Tuesday or Thursday in room 101. Each detention will involve a resolution and restitution process to promote positive behavior. Continued infractions will result in parent/guardian contact and a dean referral, if necessary. Consequences for major infractions will not follow this plan, but will jump to the level appropriate for the infraction.
     
    Cheating:
    Cheating is a serious offense and will not be tolerated. It violates all of the character pillars. It will result in a 0 for the assignment, quiz or test and a parent/guardian contact. A second offense will result in a greater consequence.
     
    Rights and Responsibilities:
    You have the right to a quality education. As with all rights, there are corresponding responsibilities. You have the responsibility to act as a person of character in order to insure that other students` rights to that same quality education are preserved. You have the responsibility to work hard to realize your dreams
