Expectations

Absences

If you are absent for a class, you must bring a note signed by your parents indicating the date on which you were absent and the reason for your absence. Notes must also include a contact phone number where the parent may be reached. Unexcused absences may result in a zero for any work missed.

Lates

Any work missed at the beginning of class can be made up for no deduction in marks only if a note is presented with a legitimate excuse.

Washroom

You must notify me before using the washroom. One student will be allowed out of the class at a time. No students will be permitted to leave the class during a test.

Late Assignments

Assignments which are handed in past the due date will receive a 10% deduction of marks per school day (20% per class). Late work must be turned in before the marked assignment is returned to the class.

Missed Test Policy

If you are away on the day of a test, your parent or guardian must email me directly with a return phone number before 3:03 pm of that day. Failing to do so will result in a 20% penalty in marks (even when you bring a note). You must request to write the test the day you return. If you know ahead of time that you will miss a test (e.g. field trips), you must arrange an alternate test time in advance. Unexcused absences will result in a zero for your test.

Exam Security

Students can gain much from reviewing their performance on previous tests and as such, students can review tests during class review sessions or by appointment if class time is insufficient. Tests and exams will be kept by the instructor to develop a student portfolio in the event of academic disputes, and in order to maintain academic security. Removal of an exam from the classroom for any reason or copies of the exam by electronic or other means will be handled according to the school’s policy on cheating.

Academic Dishonesty

It is the student’s obligation to inform himself or herself of the applicable standards for academic honesty. Students must be aware that standards in this class may be different from those in other schools or classes. If a student is in any doubt as to the standard of academic honesty in a particular course or assignment, then the student must consult with the instructor as soon as possible, and in no case should a student submit an assignment if the student is not clear on the relevant standard of academic honesty.
