The following grading percentages will serve as a basis for the grades for this class:Major Assessments: 60% of final nine weeks gradeMinor Assessments: 40% of final nine weeks grade
Introduction. Students implement personal and interpersonal skills to strengthen individual performance in the workplace and in society and to make a successful transition to the workforce and/or postsecondary education. Students apply technical skills to address business applications of emerging technologies.
· All computer make-up work should be done at school during morning or afternoon tutorials.
· It will be the student's responsibility to see that makeup work is completed within the specified timeframe.
REASSESSMENT OPPORTUNITIES MUST BE EARNED BY MEETING THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:
· Students receiving a 90 or higher have demonstrated adequate mastery and will not have the opportunity to reassess.
Students scoring below a 90 may reassess ONE time, for a possible final score of 90.
The steps for reassessment are as follows:
- Complete a "Request to Reassess" form. This must be submitted to the teacher by the studnet.
- All work tied to the assessment must be completed and mastery demonstrated to ear reassessment.
- The reassessment must be completed within 4 school days of receiving the original grade.
NON-ACADEMIC BEHAVIOR: Actions that impede the learning process such as: not completing assignments, chronically turning in late work, etc. may be met with disciplanary measures. Below is Career and Technology's policy for dealing with problematic non-academic behavior:
1st offense: Warning/Redirection
2nd offense: Mandatory Tutorials
3rd offense: Parent Contact
4th offense: Office Referral
· All policies in the STUDENT HANDBOOK will be followed.
· Students will sit in assigned seats and be held responsible for equipment and furniture at their workstation.
· Be in your assigned seat when the tardy bell rings.
· Be respectful of your classmates as well as your teacher!
· Students will not be allowed to leave the classroom without a pass.
