Assessment of Progress
This course is a college course and helps students to explore a possible career choice. Therefore, students are expected to be present during class time and to take full advantage of this time to focus on work throughout the class period. There may be homework assignments that will need to be completed so that the student will be successful in this class.
Students will be given 5 pts daily for being on time. If the student is tardy they will lose all 5pts. Additionally students will be given 15 pts daily for completing the daily task/assignment. If the student does not complete the assignment during class they can come that day during lunch or after school (Even days) to complete it for full credit. Once the school day is done and the student has not completed the daily task/assignment the student will get half of the 15 pts for turning it in late. If a student is absent (that is an excused absent) they will have two weeks to make up the work for full credit. For excused absences the 5pts for attendance does not count against their grade.
All work will be available through the Canvas Online System. All reading material, assignments, quizzes, test will be given online. If any parent would like to be added into the canvas system just e-mail me at email@example.com and request to be added as an observer to your son or daughters account. Please include in your e-mail who your son or daughter is and which class they are attending.
