     Late or Missing Assignments Policy:

    Assignments are due on time as posted by the teacher.  Students are responsible for completing any missing assignments due to absences.  When a student has an excused absence, make-up work must be completed within the same amount of time the student was absent from class (e.g. if a student is absent for two class periods, they are allowed two class periods to complete any missing assignments).  Note:  Work cannot be made-up for credit for unexcused absences.  Late assignments may be downgraded by 50%. 


    Tutoring is available on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 2:20 to 3:20 pm.  Tutoring is also available as needed to fit individual student needs


    There may be occasions where students can work cooperatively on daily assignments.  However, students are always required to produce their own work, both hard copy and electronically in their individual student account.  Students who do not save their work correctly will receive a grade of “F” for that assignment or exam.  Multiple incidences of plagiarism will result in a student receiving a grade of “F” for their quarter grade. 

     Attendance Policy:

    In order to be successful in this class, it is imperative that all students attend class each class date.  Parents must call the attendance office when their student will be absent for illness, appointments, or other valid reasons as described in their student handbook

     Excessive Absences

    A.R.S. §15-803 (B) states that absences may be considered excessive when the number of absent days exceeds ten percent of the number of required attendance days prescribed in A.R.S. §15-802. Ten percent equates to nine (9) days of absences per semester regardless of whether they are excused or unexcused.  Students with excessive excused absences will be required to provide medical documentation to remain in class and excuse any further absences. If additional absences occur, and medical documentation is not provided, the student will be referred to administration and may be dropped from class.

     Excessive Tardiness

    After 5 unexcused tardies, parents will be contacted by the teacher to review options for success.  After 10 unexcused tardies, students will be referred to administration for possible Saturday school or placed on an attendance contract for the remainder of the school year


    All students are always expected to demonstrate appropriate respectful behavior. Any behavior that presents a danger to the teacher or other students will be reported to school security.
