Work Habits and Citizenship

Students are expected to conduct themselves in the classroom according to the policies outlined in the school’s student handbook and classroom posted rules. No food or drink is allowed in class or the lab. 


Extra Credit

I do not give extra credit in my class.  Instead, I allow my students to redo any assignment they want until the end of the term.  You can redo the assignment as many times as you would like until you achieve your desired score.


Makeup Work

It is the student’s responsibility to take care of work missed while absent. All work is expected to be in by the final cut-off date whether absent or not. 



Because of some individual needs/circumstances, I reserve the right to modify this disclosure to meet certain needs of students in helping them receive the best education possible. 



For some projects, student/teacher may take pictures as well as videotape. By signing this disclosure, you give me permission to post student pictures/videos for educational purposes – such as classroom use, and various displays.
