The Successful Student

Always wear your ID on a lanyard around your neck

First time without it = warning

Second & Third time without it = 1 hour detention

J

JANE Q. DOE

Fourth time without it = 1 hour detention and referral to house-master

Every time thereafter = 1 day in- house suspension

slide18

Be on Time to School and Class

2 times tardy = written warning & automated call home

3 – 7 times tardy = 1 lunch detention

8 – 12 times = 1 hour detention & 1 lunch detention

13 – 21 times tardy = Saturday suspension (2 hour session)

21 times tardy = 3 days out-of-school suspension and House Contract

slide19

Attendance is Important

  • TRY TO ATTEND EVERY DAY
  • For a 6 day class, 3 absences allowed. 4th absence = failure
  • For a 3 day class, 2 absences allowed. 3rd absence = failure
  • 10 absences = a referral to the attendance officer

Waivers may be granted for:

- Death in the Family

- Religious Holidays

- School sponsored activities

- Court appearances

- Unavoidable accidents

- Military obligations & Medical Reasons

slide20

What to do for an Unwaived Absence:

Get a Buy Back.

Attend five consecutive days with no absences or tardies to school or class to buy back 1 day. You can do this two times.

Get the buy back form form from the Asst. Housemaster’s Office

Continue to Work Hard.

You can still pass for the semester or year, even with an automatic failure!

If you are passing the course, but fail due to absences, your numerical grade will be a 59.

Example:

Semester Course - Term 1 – 59 Term 2 - 85 Final grade = 72

Year Course- Term 1-85 Term 2 - 59 Term 3-95 Term 4 – 80

Year Grade = 80

If you stop working, your average will be so low, you will not be able to bring your grade up. So even if you fail due to absences, you must keep working to get that 59.

slide21

DO YOUR BEST ACADEMICALLY

  • Use agenda/planner to write down all assignments
  • Complete at least 30 minutes of homework per day per subject four times a week.
  • It is your responsibility to make up work

IF YOU NEED HELP:

- Discuss it with your teacher

- Go after school for extra help

- Go to the Access Center for tutoring

Progress Reports are sent home 4 times a year

Report Cards are distributed four times a year
