    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.
    • Strive to achieve the DREAM.
     
    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
     
    A Policy:
    If you get 2 A’s on successive chapter tests you may choose the practice homework you need to do.  You will receive full credit for all “practice” assignments in that chapter.  Should you get lower than an A on any test, you will have to again get A’s on 2 successive tests to regain the option of the A Policy.
