Procedures and Guidelines

procedure entering the classroom
Procedure: Entering the Classroom
  • Enter one at a time quietly
  • ABSOLUTELY NO CELL PHONES OUT upon entering the classroom
  • If you are noisy when you walk in, the teacher will ask you to step outside and re-enter the classroom respectfully
  • Homework will be collected at the bell, unless special circumstances are announced/on the board
  • Look over the day’s agenda, on the board
  • GET OUT YOUR pen/pencil, science section in notebook/binder, textbook, and calculator
procedure tardies
Procedure: Tardies
  • Have your planner out before entering class
  • Go IMMEDIATELY to your seat, do not walk up to teacher, interrupt, or disrupt the class
  • Have your planner out on your desk; get to work
  • Mrs. B will pass by your desk to check your planner, to collect homework, etc.
  • COMING TO CLASS WITHOUT REQUIRED MATERIALS = UNEXCUSED TARDY
  • FAILURE TO FOLLOW PROCEDURE = UNEXCUSED TARDY
procedure homework
Procedure: Homework
  • Homework quizzes at least 1x per week in physics, physical science, semi-weekly in environmental and zoo .
  • Homework will be written on the board, under the daily agenda
  • Some homework will be collected, some won’t.
  • Homework turned in any time after I collect it is considered late
  • No-name papers will be marked “0”, or “F”.
procedure hall passes
Procedure:Hall Passes
  • NO PLANNER = NO PASS
  • Wait for a pause or break in lecture before asking me to sign your planner
  • If you need a tissue, get up quietly and get one without drawing attention to yourself
  • You will NOT be allowed to use the restroom/get water/etc. during the first or last 5 minutes of class
  • You will not be allowed to leave the class – unless extreme circumstances – while taking a quiz or test.
procedure seating lab partners
Procedure:Seating/Lab Partners
  • Assigned seating for the first two weeks (or until I learn your names!)
  • YOU choose your lab partner; it must be someone you can rely on, who you will support, and who will support you
  • If there are ANY discipline problems with the person you choose to work/sit with, AUTOMATIC REFERRAL, and Mrs. B will choose your seat AND partner for rest of school year
procedure class discussions lectures
Procedure:Class Discussions/Lectures
  • Raise your hand
  • Only ask questions on the topic being discussed (clarification, expanding, etc.)
  • If your question is off-topic, write it down and ask it later
  • You have the RIGHT TO KNOW WHY!!! Feel free to ask why the topic is important (politely); I will either:
  • -answer it to the best of my ability
  • -do more research, and answer the next day
  • -tell you to hold that though, because I will be addressing the answer shortly
  • NOT FOLLOWING PROCEDURE = TEACHER MAY IGNORE YOU AND ACKNOWLEDGE STUDENT WHO IS FOLLOWING PROCEDURE
procedures grading
Procedures:Grading
  • Homework and classwork will be graded and passed back within 3 days of due-date.
  • Tests, lab reports, and projects will be graded and passed back within 5-7 days of test date.
  • Late work will be graded last, after the current assignments have been graded
  • Any missing work is YOUR responsibility: assignments are posted on JMC. Check JMC for assignments you missed while absent before talking to the teacher.
procedures checking grades
Procedures:Checking grades
  • You have the right to know your grade; you do NOT have the right to interrupt my teaching to ask me your grade.
  • It is your responsibility to discuss your grade with me on your own time, before or after class
  • It is your responsibility to keep track of YOUR grade, and to set up a meeting with me BEFORE THE END OF QUARTER to discuss
  • Always do your homework, and always listen to teachers’ instructions. Test questions will come not just from homework, but from class instruction/discussion, and experiments
procedures class dismissal
Procedures:Class Dismissal
  • WORK UNTIL THE BELL RINGS
  • Clean up all materials; mess at desk = detention
  • Double check the homework assignment
  • Mrs. Buettner dismisses you, NOT the bell
other procedures
Other Procedures:
  • The following procedures will be discussed as the come up, for example:
  • Lab Experiments
  • Study Hall Days
  • Planned absences
  • Mass – Period 3 only
  • Tornado + Fire drills
cheating
Cheating
  • I do not tolerate cheating of any kind. I consider it a serious offense against integrity and honesty.
  • Cheating includes, but not limited to:
    • Discussing answers to tests with other students
    • Copying / sharing answers with another student (in-class or outside of school)
    • Illegal “Cheat Sheets”
    • Electronic devices – texting or photographing info to other students, programming info into calculators, phones, or other devices and sharing
consequences cheating
CONSEQUENCES: Cheating
  • Consequences are as follows:
    • First time = “0”; no chance to make up; I will make a copy of the work and give to Mr. Ries
    • Second time = “0”, 2nd referral + Saturday School
    • If you are caught cheating on a test or project:
      • You will receive automatic referral, plus a zero, with no chance to make up the exam
  • PLAGIARISM from any source is CHEATING (Wiki, online website, etc.
consequences tardies
CONSEQUENCES - Tardies
  • 3 tardies per semester
  • 4th = detention served that day or next
  • 5+ = Saturday School
  • **Official tardy rules in your student handbook
consequences late homework
CONSEQUENCES: Late Homework
  • Late penalties are as follows:
    • If handed in during class, but after I collected it, it counts as 1 day late
    • 1 – 5 days late = -50%
    • > 5 days late = 0
  • This means that if you want credit for an assignment, turn it in NO LATER than 5 days after it is due.
  • Absences: you have the same amount of days you were absent to hand in homework without late penalties. HOWEVER, homework you were assigned the last day BEFORE absent is due immediately upon returning
consequences electronic devices
CONSEQUENCES – Electronic Devices
  • CELL PHONE OR OTHER ELECTRONIC DEVICE IS VISIBLE
  • - You will be asked to put it away the first time
  • - Second time, it will be confiscated and brought up to Front Office, with referral
  • USING CELL PHONE IN CLASSROOM:
  • - Automatic referral, and phone will be confiscated
consequences rude behavior
CONSEQUENCES: Rude behavior
  • 1st Infraction
    • Verbal warning
  • 2nd Infraction
    • Detention
  • 3rd Infraction
    • Referral
    • The more severe/disrespectful the infraction, the teacher may skip directly to the 2nd infraction consequence

During lab experiments, 1st discipline problem DOES NOT GET WARNING; you will receive automatic referral

guideline 1
Guideline # 1
  • “PLEASE,” “THANK-YOU,” “EXCUSE ME”
  • Respect the teacher, respect other students
    • I am the adult in the room, I have policies in place that protect every students’ right to a safe, respectful, academic learning environment
    • Arguing/refusal to follow intstructions = automatic referral
guideline 2
Guideline # 2
  • Leave your excess baggage at the door!
  • (Don’t take out anger on teacher or others…but talk to me if something’s “eating” at you
guideline 3
Guideline # 3
  • Come to class prepared!
    • Textbook
    • 3-ring binder w/ loose leaf
    • Lab notebook
    • Pen/pencil
    • Scientific Calculator
    • *Failure to have these items could result in a tardy if you have to leave class to retrieve these items after the 2nd bell
    • *Failure to have these items could result in an unsatisfactory grade, if lack of these materials causes you to miss an assignment, notes, or homework
guideline 4
Guideline # 4
  • MAKE NO EXCUSES – YOU CONTROL YOUR FATE
    • You have these procedures and guidelines to refer to; AND STUDENT HANBOOK
    • Accept the consequences, and move on
    • Get done what you have to get done
    • YOUR GRADE IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY---I JUST GIVE YOU THE TOOLS, WHAT YOU DO WITH THEM IS UP TO YOU!!
guideline 5
Guideline # 5
  • Follow instructions the first time
guideline 6
Guideline # 6
  • Find reliable professional sources to support your opinions, respectfully question
  • (This is a science class; facts and conclusions are only valid if they can withstand scrutiny, questioning, and tests)
