    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



    Classwork/Homework will be posted in Google Classroom.  Due dates will be posted per assignment.


    Food/Drink/Gum policy:

    Virtual (Google Classroom): You’re home.  Ask your parents!

    In-Person (Hamilton): 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. 


    Virtual Attendance:

    Attendance is based on engagement. If a student is not present for synchronous instruction and does not complete the asynchronous/alternative assignment for the daily class meeting, then the student is considered absent. Teachers will contact attendance clerks once a student is determined to be absent. 


    In-Person Attendance:

    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.



    The expectations of students participating in Google Classroom is similar as if they were in-person.  Students will use appropriate language, be respectful to another through all forms of communication (live chats, message boards, etc.), and come prepared to learn each day.


    Diversity Statement:

    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.
