Progress Reports will be sent home throughout the semester. Grades may be accessed using Parent Portal on line at anytime as well as biweekly posted grades in the classroom.

Homework will be used on an as needed basis only.

Assignments and homework are a necessary extension from the daily classroom work. Homework is for your benefit and will insure that you have practiced the skills needed for success in this class. If an assignment is not turned in on the due date; students will have the opportunity to attend after school homework recovery to complete the work. The student must have the signature or stamp that indicates the work was completed in homework recovery. The assignment then must be turned in by student within seven days of the original assignment due date for UP TO 70%. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT PARENTS WILL BE CONTACTED IF WORK IS NOT COMPLETED. There may be assignments; projects or presentations that will not be eligible for homework recovery but I will make that clear on the assignment sheet.

Extra Help
I am always available to a student that needs my help. With that said; we can be reached via email or by leaving a message on the school number listed above. We frequently will be here before and after school in our room for the purpose of offering help. Also; advisory class and after school tutoring may be used for extra help. It is the student’s responsibility to make sure he/she requests an advisory pass prior to coming for extra help during that time.

An excused absence means you have the right to make up missed work. RRHS allows one- day make up time for every one excused absence. An unexcused absence means the student will not be eligible to make up missed work. An exception to this policy is a previously assigned essay or long- term project. These assignments must be turned in on the due date whether physically in the classroom or not. A student absent on a test day should be prepared to take the test on the day he/she returns to class.

Loss of Graduation Credit (ARS Law 15-803) Students who reach 10 non-school-related absences in any one course; per semester; WILL lose credit in that class. Absence appeals can be made to the Attendance Appeals committee with official documentation at the end of the semester.
Make up- We will be following the district 10 to 10 rules and all missed work must be completed. It is the student’s responsibility to turn in missed work.

Tardy Policy
Being on time for class is a requirement. A student will be considered tardy if the final bell rings and the student are not in the classroom. The student cannot be coming through the door during bell; the classroom door must be closed with student on the classroom side to be considered on time. A pattern of tardiness will result in possible reductions in participation points for that day as well a referral to administration.
Computer Acceptable Use Policy
Any use of a personal computer or technology that connects to the Rio Rico High School network will be governed by the rules of the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). The use of technology is at the discretion of the teacher. By signing this syllabus and using technology in this course or on campus you agree to abide to the rules and regulations as stated in the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).

Plagiarism and Cheating
I consider it unethical under any circumstances to use another student's or published author's work and pass it on as your own. Providing another student with your work is equally as dishonest. If plagiarism or suspicion of cheating occurs; you will receive an automatic zero on the assignment. In addition; parents will be notified and a possible discipline referral will be filled out.

Acceptable Behavior
1. Be responsible ad prepared
2. RESPECT everyone in this class. RESPECT every object in this class including textbooks and materials.
3. Follow all procedures for lab
4. Please keep all food and drink out of the computer lab- water bottles are acceptable
5. I dismiss the class; not the bell.

Consequences for Unacceptable Behavior
All Rio Rico High School rules and consequences stated in the school handbook will be followed in this room. In addition; for more minor offenses:

1st offense: Let’s talk together after class.
2nd offense: Quality time with ME after school or lunch
3rd offense: Time to get mom and/or dad involved plus quality time
4th offense: All of the above PLUS a referral to house administrator
