Rules for Success:
1) Be on time & bring ALL needed materials to class.
You are tardy if you are not in your
seat when the tardy bell rings!
2) Be alert & attentive to your task AT ALL TIMES! Writing, exchanging, or reading notes to
others will result in Afterschool detention the next day.
3) NO excess talking without the teacher s permission. Talking during a quiz or test will result
in a ZERO on that assignment.
4) There will be NO EATING, NO DRINKING, in class. All food & drinks must be OUT OF
SIGHT!!! (Unopened and inside your bookbag.)
5) Show respect for others at all times.
6) Throw away all trash & put away all resources properly before leaving.
7) Listen carefully & follow instructions THE FIRST TIME!
8) You will be allowed a MAXIMUM of 2 bathroom/hall passes per nine weeks. (1 for 1st
period & third period.) You must SIGN OUT ANYTIME you leave class!
Discipline Policy: The discipline policy of SIHS will be followed. In addition, the following
system of discipline will be used for those who break class rules or fail to obey reasonable
1) WARNING ( may be individual or group)
2) 30 minutes of After School Detention on the next school day.
3) 1 hour of After School Detention, phone call to parents.
A. Homework: This course will require outside study & work,
and I expect it to be done ON
TIME, and BY YOU!! COPYING AN ASSIGNMENT WILL RESULT IN A ZERO, AND
A WRITE UP!! I check assignments randomly, and if an assignment is not completed and
turned in by the assigned deadline it will receive a ZERO. All worksheets are to be completed
by the next day unless I specifically say differently. If you are absent, it is YOUR
RESPONSIBILITY to get the makeup work when you return.
B. Major Tests: There will be a major test after each
unit of study. THE TWO KEYS TO
SUCCESS ON THESE TESTS ARE: 1) DOING THE WORK WHEN IT IS ASSIGNED,
AND 2) STUDYING THE UNIT TEST REVIEWS. In order to be eligible for RETESTING
(for scores less than 80), you must attend a PRETEST session at 8:00 a.m. the day before the
test. ANY TEST MISSED MUST BE MADE UP WITHIN 5 SCHOOL DAYS! It is YOUR
RESPONSIBILITY to schedule a makeup.
C. EXAMS: ALL students take the exam, which counts for
25% of your final grade. Each
student (except exempt seniors) must take the final exam, which covers the entire course.
D. NOTEBOOK: All students are expected to maintain a
completed notebook of notes,
worksheets, maps, etc., which are organized by unit. Each unit s work will be checked before
that unit s test. This grade will be worth 2.5 times the value of a daily grade. If you turn in
your entire completed notebook at the end of the course, it will be worth 3 points on your
course grade! ( I will do this by adding 6 points to your second 9 weeks grade. )
E. ADDITIONAL: I reserve the right to assign additional
projects & papers allowing at least 4
weeks for completion.
F. INTERNET: We will be using the Internet for research
on specific websites. This research
will be done primarily in the school computer lab under close supervision.
G. BEHAVIOR: All students will be expected to obey all class and school rules.
