Grades are available on Skyward.  Grades will be uploaded after each unit test and at the end of each week.  If you see a  it means you have an excused absence and that assignment can be made up.  If you see a zero it means your absence was not excused, you turned it in late, or you just did not do it.  You may not make up the assignment.

Homework is due at the beginning of each class.  All work must be showing to receive credit.  A paper with answers only is not acceptable. All assignments will have warm up problems.  Assignments without warm up problems or done with pen will receive no credit. 

Remember "When in doubt write it out"

There will be tests, periodic quizzes, and notebook quizzes given throughout the quarter.  Quizzes may not be made up.  You may take a quiz any time before if you are checking out or will be out of town.  I drop the lowest quiz score at the end of each quarter.

Late work is accepted only for excused absences.  All late work must be completed within 2 days after returning to school.  It is your responsibility to get missed notes and assignments.  Make-up tests must be taken the day you return, unless other arrangements are made.   If you are going to be absent for reasons other than illness, you must get the work before you go.

If you come late to school, you need to see me that day to get the work you missed.  The 2-day rule does not apply.   If you come late to school on a test day you may not make up the exam. 

If you are on an approved check out list you do not need to come see me that day unless it is to take a quiz or pick up a worksheet.  You can get your assignment from this web site!

In the event there is a substitute there will be a 10 point participation grade for that day and be dependent on a positive report from the substitute teacher.  Students are expected to be on their best behavior.

Cell phones will be collected during tests, test corrections and quizzes.  Test may not leave the classroom.

Bill$ Buck$ :  Students will receive three Bill$ Buck$ each quarter.  This allows you to turn in a late assignment.  it does not excuse you from doing the assignment.  The Bill$ Buck$ need to be stapled to the front of the assignment.  Full credit will be given, at Mrs. Bills discretion, based on quality of work.  Lost Bill$ buck$ will not be replaced.  Unused Bill$ Buck$ are worth 3 extra credit points and will be surrendered at the end of each quarter.  Points are added to a low test score.  They may not be used on the final exam nor are they transferable. 

Bill$ Buck$ may also give you the opportunity to use the hall pass or make up a quiz when tardy or absent.
