ASSESSMENT/ACADEMIC EVALUATION
Grades will be evaluated based on points through a rubric system from attendance/participation, in-
class/homework assignments, projects, quizzes, and tests/exams. The computation of grades is as follows:
Grading Scale
Attendance/Participation 10% A 90-100%
Class/Homework 15% B 80-89%
Projects 15% C 79-70%
Quizzes 25% D 69-60%
Tests/Exams 35% F below 60%
TOTAL 100%

Attendance/Absences: Attendance is very important in the learning process. To establish an open


line of communication, the student should contact the instructor via email or by leaving a message with the
school 24 hours in advance to notify the teacher of his/her absence. In the event of an absence, the student
must submit an excuse note to the main office with a valid reason for absence upon return. The absence must
be excused in order for missed assignments, quizzes, tests, and/or projects to be excused, accepted at a later
date, and/or taken at a later time. In addition, make-up work must be done and/or submitted in a timely
manner. Punctuality is equally important.

In accordance with Board Policy 411, students who earn a grade of 60% or above but accumulate 6 or more
unexcused absences during a semester will earn no credit (NC). Please take note of the following:

3 UNEXCUSED TARDIES = 1 UNEXCUSED ABSENCE


10 MINUTES OR MORE TARDY = 1 UNEXCUSED ABSENCE
1-2 DAYS OF ABSENCE = PARENT NOTE
3 CONSECUTIVE DAYS = DOCTORS CERTIFICATION
However, students who earn a failing grade while accumulating 6 or more absences will receive the failing
grade instead of no credit (NC) for the semester.

Additionally, Board Policy 330 stipulates that students of non-compulsory age ( 16 or above) who
accumulate 13 or more unexcused absences (includes excused, unexcused, tardiness, and suspensions) may
be dropped from school for the remainder of the academic year.

Assignments (seatwork/homework)
Assignments will be given during almost every class meeting unless a test is scheduled for the day.
All assignments, quizzes, and tests must be done in pencil. Otherwise, it will not be accepted.
2
Assignments should be legible and labeled as follows:
Name, Date assignment was given, Period, and Student # on the top right corner of the paper
Assignment #, page(s), and problems assigned on the top center of the paper
Each assignment is worth 5 points. However, some specific assignments may be worth more. Show work
completely for math computations. No work, no credit! Work must be completed or attempted. If you
leave a problem blank, 1 point will be taken off.
Grading Scale: 5 pts 70% of problems correct, 4 pts 60-69% correct, 3 pts 50-59% correct,
2 pts 40-49% correct, 1 pt Less than 40%, 0 pt missing assignment, unexcused absence, or less than
half completed/attempted
Late work will be accepted only if it is a day late AND will only be given half credit. You are highly
encouraged to turn in all assignments whether given credit for the assignment or not.
For make-up work, the deadline depends on the number of days absent. For example, if you miss one
day, you have 2 contact days to submit the work.
Keep all returned work as proof that it was submitted/graded.
Participation: Everyday, the student earns points on a rubric scale. Reasons for point loss include but are
not limited to: chewing pugua/gum, use of electronics, eating food, lack of participation, lack of materials,
disruptive behavior and attendance. For unexcused absence, student will automatically receive no point for
the days they are out while for excused absences, three points will be deducted. In-class/homework
assignments may be given should the need arise.
Projects and/or Group Work: Students will participate in group work and/or individual and group
projects throughout the semester or year. Each project will have a criteria sheet given when the project is
announced. Students are to keep a binder with complete notes and it will be collected at the end of the
quarter. It will serve as one of the project for the quarter.
Tests/Quizzes: A test will be given after each unit or chapter and will be announced ahead of time.
Expect a lot of short pop quizzes. Quizzes can be announced or unannounced. In addition, a pre-/post-test
will be given each quarter. Pre-test scores will not be counted towards students grades while post-tests will
count towards the students grade.
Extra Credit: Extra credit points will be given at teachers discretion and it will be added to students
low scores but it is not a guarantee that student will get a passing grade.
Progress Reports: Progress Reports will be issued monthly in a given semester. It is the students
responsibility to have these progress reports signed by their parents and submitted within 2 contact days as it
will count towards their grade. Students grades can be verified on PowerSchool.
Tutoring: Extra help is provided with prior notice during lunchtime.
CLASSROOM RULES AND PROCEDURES
Rules and procedures are fundamental in life. We follow rules and procedures in our daily lives for things
such as approaching a traffic light, starting a car and driving, and making a letter. There are also rules and
procedures in this classroom. These rules and procedures ensure a positive atmosphere in the classroom.
They contribute to a controlled and learning environment for everyone.

from an absence. Follow this procedure:
1. Join the activity in progress. If you dont know what to do, raise your hand and wait until I
reach you.
2. During the last 5 minutes of class, copy the missing work and Bellwork. You may get this
information from a responsible classmate. If you missed a worksheet, see the make-up folder.
3. If you need to make-up a test or quiz, you must make arrangements with the teacher during
the last 5 minutes of class. Tests or quizzes can only be made up during lunch and only if
previous arrangements have been made. You have one week to complete the missed quiz/test.
B. E-mail assignments
If you have access to the Internet at home you may email me at: mabataclan@gdoe.net and ask
for missing work. You can also e-mail work if possible.

IV. Responding To My Request For Your Attention


There may be times when I may need to get everyones undivided attention so that I may give
directions, explanations, answer group questions, etc. or if the noise level gets too loud. When I need
everyone to stop talking and pay attention to me:
I will say Give Me 5 which means:
1) Eyes on the Speaker
2) Quiet
3) Be Still
4) Hands free (put things down)
5) Listen

V. Listening To/Responding To Questions:
Everyone has the right to be respected when they are speaking. If you would like to ask a question or
make a comment, please raise your hand and wait to be called on. Please do not speak while someone
else is speaking. Everyone will have an opportunity to talk.

VI. Asking a Question


If you have a question while the teacher is lecturing or while another student has the floor, raise your
hand and wait patiently to be called on.

VII. End-of-Period and Class Dismissal


Wait until the bell rings to dispose your trash. Please keep the desks and classrooms clean at all times.
Right before the bell rings everyone should: be in assigned seat, be quiet, gather all their materials and
wait for the teacher to dismiss the class.

VIII. When You Finish Early


If you finish all of your assigned work early you may a) read independently b) work on an assignment
for another class c) write d) draw e) work on make-up. DO NOT TALK OR DISTURB OTHERS.

IX. Restroom Policy


As much as possible, utilize breaks and lunch time to use the restroom. Restroom passes will only be
given in emergencies. Three passes per quarter. Those who must use the restroom often for medical
reasons must present a doctors note. Any habitual pattern of excessive restroom use may end up with
a referral to the discipline office. Restroom use will only be allowed after the lesson is presented and
before the 15 minutes of the end of the period.

X. Classroom Language
Please use appropriate language in the classroom. Do not use negative words and speak positively
about other classmates and what we are studying.

XI. Electronic Devices


We know that parents and children value the ability to be able to call each other at a moment's notice.
However, cellphones or other electronic devices are not to be used during class time (not even for
calculator use). Such items will be CONFISCATED. (Cellphones must be in silent mode).

DISCIPLINE INTERVENTION (refer to student handbook)


Everything we do in life has consequences. If you choose to run a red light, you must accept the
consequences that come with it (traffic ticket, taking someones life, crashing your car, etc.).
Consequences are the things that happen to you when you choose not to obey a rule. This is what will
happen if you choose to violate one of the classroom rules:
1st Offense Verbal warning
2nd Offense Behavior is documented and student is counseled
3rd Offense Parent notification by phone call/email (in addition to logical consequences)
4th Offense Discipline referral (logical consequences extended)

Incentives: It is important to have a positive, comfortable learning environment. Students will be


rewarded to those who choose responsible behavior. Possible incentives are as follows: a) 5 bonus
points on test or quiz b) excused from one individual assignment c) turn in assignment late for full
credit
