COURSE EXPECTATIONS (Curriculum)
Students receive general employability skills as a group and individual training that will address their job specific knowledge and skills. Curriculum is designed to enhance communication and interpersonal skills.
Career Preparation is work-based instruction. To receive credit for this course (total 3 credits), the student must work 15 hours per week (at least 10 hours must be worked during the school week) at an approved training site. The student must complete all related documentation (wage & hour reports, bring in check stubs, etc) and successfully master classroom instruction activities. If any one of these components is missing (example: student quit their job or student refused to do any classroom work), the student will not pass the six weeks.
SCOPE AND SEQUENCE
Students will demonstrate:
Make up work procedures
Six Weeks Grades will be based on the following
Career Preparation class is graded on two parts—50% class work and 50% career work (on-the-job related responsibilities).
Attendance is a vital element of your education; whether school or on-the-job training. If you know ahead of time that you will be absent for an appointment, please notify your teacher in advance. If you have a sudden illness and you know you will be absent, please call your teacher at ext. 1632 and leave a message. Also, it is important that you notify your employer before 9:30 am. Also, please remember that if you are too ill to go to school, you are too ill to attend work.
MATERIALS NEEDED EACH DAY
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 if Due to an Absence: Students shall be expected to make up assignments and tests after absences within according to HISD policies.
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.
Beginning of Class – Come into the room quietly and respectfully.
Stay in your seat – If you need to get up for any reason, you must first ask for and receive permission.
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:
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.
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!
