Academic integrity
Academic Integrity

  • Any form of cheating or plagiarism will NOT be tolerated.

  • Consequences:

    • 1st Offense: zero on the assignment / cannot be made up or replaced, parent notification, NHS notification

    • 2nd Offense: zero on the assignment / cannot be made up or replaced, conference with parents and administration, possible failure for grading period

    • 3rd Offense: removal from class


  • Grades will be given out on a point basis. To calculate your grade, divide your total by the total number of points possible.

  • If you need to know your grade, please see me before or after school, or check PowerSchool at any time. I will not administer grades during passing periods or during class.

Make up work policy homework class work tests and quizzes
Make-Up Work Policy: Homework, Class Work, Tests, and Quizzes

  • If you don’t do it and turn it in, I can’t grade it.

    2. I will not chase you down to remind you to make up work – it is YOUR responsibility to ask for make up work and do it.

    3. Assignments due on the day you were absent will be expected the day you return.

    4. If you miss class on the day of a pop quiz or a class discussion that is worth points, you will not be able to make up these points.

Make up work policy essays presentations and projects
Make-Up Work Policy: Essays, Presentations, and Projects

  • If a major project or paper is not turned in on or before a due date, regardless of your attendance in the class, the assignment will NOT BE ACCEPTED.

  • You, the student, are responsible for timely submission of your work. Emailed assignments will be accepted, but they must be submitted on or before the due date and time.

  • Stop making excuses – this is YOUR life. Take control of it. Teachers cannot “rewire” your brain so you learn; you have to work hard to learn new material, too.
