ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

Students are responsible for honesty and independent effort. Failure to uphold these standards includes, but is not limited to, the following: plagiarizing written work or projects, cheating on exams or assignments, and/or collusion on an exam or project.

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

  • Pencil, Pen and Paper – in case we have technical difficulties

ATTENDANCE:

Attendance is very important.  Poor attendance usually results in poor or failing grades.  If you are absent, see me upon your return for any assignment(s)/test(s) missed.

Late Work: Students will follow the district policy on any late work.

COURSE RESOURCES:

All class resources are classroom sets. Therefore, it is very important to follow the above instructions in the event of any absence from this class.                                           

Internet

  • The Internet is to be used for education purposes in the classroom, as determined by the teacher and/or an administrator.                                                                           

 

Phone(s), Chromebook(s), and all other Electronic Device(s) Policy: We are very fortunate to have a computer lab setting for our classroom. All of the electronics that students will need to be successful in this class are already provided. Therefore, all phone(s), Chromebook(s), and all other electronic device(s) must be put away, unless instructed by the teacher.

Ear Buds Policy: Unless instructed by the teacher, all earbuds must be put away.

On test days all students need to put their electronic devices in the “cubby” (a clear shoe holder at the front of the room), until the last test has been turned into the teacher. Once the last test has been turned in, the students are welcome to get their electronics back from the “cubby” area.

Consequences for not following the above Phone(s), Chromebook(s), and all other Electronic Device(s) Policy:

If the student chooses to not follow Phone(s), Chromebook(s), and all other Electronic Device(s) Policy, each instance will be notated in the following manner:

  1. First occurrence – I will redirect the student by asking them to put the device(s) away. If they comply, only documentation will occur. However, if they refuse I will call an Assistant Principal to collect the device(s), and at this point it would be a write-up, so please keep it put away.
  2. Second occurrence – I will redirect the student by asking them to put their device(s) in the “cubby” and they may get it back at the end of the period. However, if they refuse I will call an

Assistant Principal to collect the device(s), and at this point it would be a write-up, so please put it in the “cubby”. I will also email their parent/guardian to make them aware of the situation.

                                                                                                                                                                Continued

  1. Third occurrence - I will redirect the student by asking them to put their device(s) in the “cubby” and they may get it back at the end of the period. However, if they refuse I will call an Assistant Principal to collect the device(s), and at this point it would be a write-up, so please put it in the “cubby”. I will also email and call their parent/guardian to make them aware of the situation.
  2. Fourth occurrence – Write-up.  I will then email and call their parent/guardian to make them aware of the situation.

 

Be careful – This counts for the whole six-weeks and may occur multiple times.

 

Note: If a student goes through all four occurrences in one day or before the end of the six-weeks the whole process starts all over again. Therefore, if a student does not comply with the school, classroom rules and policies they may be written-up multiple times in a grading Six Week Period.

Please follow the Phone(s), Chromebook(s), and all other Electronic Device(s) Policy in order to assure this does not happen. Thank you!

Have a Great Day - While Learning!

CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS:

ü Treat one another how you would like to be treated.

ü Be your best and do your best!

ü Failure is not an option!

ü Stay alert and productive at all times.

ü No eating or drinking inside of the classroom

Follow – Positive Behavior Intervention Support Standards of Huntsville High School

Parents we will go over this thoroughly in class. We will support positive behavior using our school Matrix. In the event there is a minor infraction in the classroom such as, but not limited to: Loud/Disruptive/Excessive noise, Dress code (that can be fixed), throwing object, running/horseplaying, not prepared, consuming food/drink outside of the commons, failure to comply with directive(s), sleeping, minor dishonesty, disrespect, private conversation, refusal to participate, talking/disruption, minor cheating (daily grade), there will be a notation made and a intervention given for each occurrence. Upon the 4th Minor Infraction and Office Discipline Referral will be written. Hopefully, all students will succeed in being successful in controlling their actions and it will not get to stage four.

 

I have read and understand the Virtual Business Syllabus.
