Welcome to the LIFT Lab! Please read to ensure an excellent academic year. This information will be recorded once read by the student/parent so the student, teacher, and/or administrator to review at any time.
HOW DID I GET SIGNED UP FOR THE LIFT LAB? Your counselor and/or administrator decided and approved what classes are to be taken in the LIFT Lab for each individual student depending on the student credit situation. They syllabus must be “turned in” within the first week for the student to continue working on his/her class.
ATTENDANCE/TARDIES: It is essential that the students come to class (logs into the class) for each class period he/she is assigned. School and district policy regarding attendance and tardies will be followed during the in-class setting. Virtual attendance will be taken as well depending on the student progressing throughout the class on-line (engagement). Students will be given folders once we are back in the regular school setting to assist with attendance, grade updates, and other important LIFT Lab information. Students will receive this information virtually through “Google Classroom” as we navigate through the distant learning plan.
CLASSWORK/HOMEWORK/DEADLINES: All work, except for the final exam, can be completed at home or in the classroom setting. Although no specific homework will be given, students are able to work on part of each module at home (catch up or get ahead). Students are given a 63-days (nine weeks) to complete each assigned class. Extensions may be possible with administrator/counselor approval. All work, assessments, essays, and the final exam in the LIFT Lab are open book/notes/calculator. Students can work at their “own pace” as long as they complete all of the required coursework by the deadline set by the students’ counselor.
CLASSROOM RULES/MANAGEMENT PLAN: Students will be required to follow all school rules (see Husky Handbook) and be respectful with fellow students, teachers, administrators, and school staff. Consequences will be followed as directed by school policy, which includes meeting/speaking with the student individually, parent/guardian contact, and/or referral to administration. Once we return to the classroom, students must use the “sign out/in sheet” to utilize the restroom or have a pass to leave the classroom for any reason. Students will be allowed to use their cell phones in the classroom for music only. Cell phones will be confiscated and/or taken to security if used for any other reason. Students are not allowed to use the internet to look up answers on the final exam. This will be considered a form of cheating and a referral will be sent to the assistant principal. No food, drink, or gum will be allowed in the classroom. Student may be given a warning, or a referral will be sent to the assistant principal if deemed necessary. Masks and social distancing guidelines must always be followed. A warning will be given for the first offense. If the guidelines are not followed following this warning, a referral will be issued to the assistant principal and/or removal from the LIFT Lab will be considered.
ACCEPTABLE USE OF TECHNOLOGY: Students will be held to the same standard while on-line as they would be in the classroom while using the LIFT Lab On-Line Program, Google Classroom, Google Meets, or any other program affiliated with the learning environment at home when completing on-line assignments. This includes proper dress, language, and behavior in all areas of education. Failure to do so will result in a warning and/or a referral to administration.
SUPPLIES: Pen/Pencil Spiral notebook for class notes Headphones for videos (in-class)
GRADING: Module Quizzes/Essays = 40% Module Tests: 40% Final Exam: 20%
Grades from the LIFT Lab go DIRECTLY onto the students’ transcripts. They DO NOT appear on Hamilton High School progress reports, report cards, or on Infinite Campus. Grades can be checked by looking onto the “Buzz System.” Student must complete all modules and receive a “green checkmark” and/or grade to receive credit for their lesson/module (including essays). It is the responsibility of the student to complete the “FINAL ACKNOWLEDGMENT” once they finish all their modules and the final exam. This will allow the teacher to submit the grade to be placed onto the student’s transcript. If this in not filled out, the grade cannot be submitted, and the grade will not be placed on the student’s transcript.

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.CHECK YOUR STUDENTS GRADE AND DUE DATE: https://cusd80hhs.agilixbuzz.comALL LIFT LAB CLASSES MUST BE COMPLETED BY WEDNESDAY, MAY 19TH.
