    Outline of classes/Grading Policy:

    Each of the courses I teach are designed to address the IEP goals of students who participate in the alternative assessment. Grades are based on 80% classwork, 20% final. 

    Parent/Student Infinite Campus (Grade check): https://campus.cusd80.com/campus/portal/chandler.jsp

    Materials Needed:

    Students need to bring pencils. I will supply all other materials needed for these classes.


    Most homework requires the student to finish what was started in class. 

    Food/Drink/Gum policy:

    Only clear bottles of water are allowed inside the classroom No food or gum is allowed inside the classroom unless there is a stated dietary/medical need. 


    Phones need to be shut off BEFORE the bell rings and must stay off during class. If a student is texting or using their phone without permission in class it will be taken away and turned into the office.  Students are NOT allowed to plug their devices into a computer or wall socket in order to charge their device. 

    Tardiness and Absences:

    A student is considered tardy if they are not in the classroom when the bell rings.  After three tardies students will enter the conduct violation protocol as seen below.  Students who miss more than 9 days of school during a semester may be dropped from school.


    Students will respect themselves and each other in my classroom and in the hallways.  Students will use appropriate language, and come prepared to class.  Students will not sleep or rest their heads in class.  Any behavior that escalates will be referred to the grade level appropriate administrator.

    All individuals have a right to an educational environment free from bias, prejudice and bigotry. As members of the Hamilton High School educational community, students are expected to refrain from participating in acts of harassment that are designed to demean another student’s race, gender, ethnicity, religious preference, disability or sexual orientation.

    Consequences for conduct violations: 1) meet with student  2) contact parent  3) detention (lunch, or class period)  4) Meeting with parent and student  5) referral to administrator
