Introduction to Tech Class:I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our computer classes. It is our hope that the following information will provide you with a better understanding of classroom procedures and expectations.
All students are expected to follow the school rules as posted in the classroom and in the student handbook. The successful student will be one who brings all required materials to class, behaves appropriately, exhibits earnest effort, and completes all assignments. To avoid misunderstandings, students should keep all graded papers until the end of each semester. All due dates on long-term assignments are the last day the assignment will be accepted.
Schoolwork missed due to an excused absence may be made up without loss of points. Students will have one day for each day missed in order to make up the missed work for credit. Work missed due to an unexcused absence will not be accepted. All work missed while students are on school-sanctioned activities is due on the scheduled due date. It is the student’s responsibility to see that the teacher receives the completed work and get any homework/class assignment that may have been given.
It is important that students realize that in high school the teachers will not seek them out to give them make-up work. Students are responsible for making up the work on their own with the specified time period. Since attendance is an integral part of your student’s success in the class, when they are absent, they risk missing an assignment or information that may not be made up.
Integrity is an important personal quality. Be intellectually honest and maintain your integrity, any student caught copying another’s work, or allowing his or her own to be copied, will be given a zero and any appropriate action deemed necessary will be taken. Cheating of any kind will not be accepted.
Respect yourself and others at all times. Profanity or disrespectful behavior is not accepted. Theft or vandalism will be dealt with severely. Respect school and personal property. All students are required to take care of the school’s computer and report any problems they see or experience to the teacher immediately. The students will be expected to leave their workstation in the condition they found it. If a student willfully tampers with the computers or computer network, he or she will be banned from using the computers in the lab, which will adversely affect his or her grade. Students who check out equipment from the teacher are responsible for any loss or damage to the equipment while in their possession.Food, drinks, or gum are not allowed in class. All electronic devices (i.e. cell phones, games, etc…) will be confiscated if seen or heard in class.No video or audio recording of any kind is permitted without the consent of the instructor and the parties involved.Grades in computer classes are based on tests/quizzes, class-work, projects, and, class participation. Course work may include, but not be limited to, using computer applications, classroom discussions and presentations.Grading Policy
A (Outstanding, 90-100%) The student has done an excellent job on assignments, far surpassing the class average.
B (Above Average, 80-89%) The student’s work consistently shows effort above the given explanations.

D (Below Average, 60-69%) The student does not complete assignments as expected.

I hope that this information has been helpful to you. I want to remind the student that if at any time they do not understand an assignment, please ask questions. If a question cannot be answered in class, please make an appointment to see the teacher. I look forward to working with each of you to make this a successful school year.Happy Computing!!!
