BEHAVIOR DURING SCHOOL HOURS

CLASSROOM: Each student is expected to behave appropriately and with respect for others so that all students have an opportunity to learn. Students should be seated at their desks when class starts and should work diligently throughout the period. Everyone is expected to do his/her best.


PASSING: Students are to move promptly, quickly AND safely during passing periods.
All students must have a staff issued written “pass” to move throughout the school when leaving an assigned classroom
MATERIALS: It is required that each student has the following materials in class daily:

1. A pen and pencil.
2. A section of a loose-leaf notebook or a separate notebook for each subject area. Each section or separate notebook must be neatly organized and contain only the materials for one particular class.
3. A homework agenda in which students will copy all daily assignments.
4. A copy of his/her schedule attached to the notebook.
5. Textbooks must be COVERED and brought to class each day.

HOMEWORK: Homework is given as an extension of daily class activities.
1. Homework must be done neatly.
2. Late and incomplete assignments may result in the lowering of a student's grade. Students may also be asked to stay after school to complete assignments.
3. Parents will be notified if the team recognizes a problem with the completion of homework by a particular student.
4. Even if no written assignment is given for the following day, students should spend some time studying, reviewing, reading or working on long-term assignments.

PUNCTUALITY: It is the responsibility of everyone to be on time. This is an expectation throughout your life. Students who are late to school and/or class without an acceptable excuse will receive discipline points towards in-school suspension. Students who accumulate an excessive number of late to school or classes may be assigned to In-School Suspension (ISS), Out Of School Suspension (OSS), Behavior Intervention Program (BIP), or After School Intervention Program (ASIP).
