Assignments
   All students will be required to save all assignments on the local hard
     drive. Each student will be given a username and password for classroom
     use. All files are subject to be checked periodically by the teacher
     unannounced.

    Tutoring will be available for all students on Tuesday and Thursdays from
      3:50pm – 4:20pm. Please see your teacher for a tutoring pass.

Make-Up Work and Tutorials
   Assignments are due on the posted date. Each day assignments are late
     10 points will be deducted up to 30 points total. For absences, 2 days will
     be allowed for each day excused absent. Upon returning from an
     absence, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to request the new due date of the
     assignment form the instructor. Tutorials are offered on Tuesday and
     Thursday afternoons from 3:50pm – 4:20pm. If a student fails to attend a
     scheduled tutorial with the teacher, the student will be expected to turn the
     assignment in to the teacher by the due date.
   If the student has access to equipment outside of school, the assignment
     may be taken home to complete. If the student does not have access to
     equipment outside of school, please refer to times available for tutoring to
     complete assignment in a timely manner.

Late Work

      work without penalties. A grade of “0” will be given to all late assignments
      past 3 days due.

All notebooks will be kept in the classroom at all times. The front cover of your
portfolio will be labeled with the following items: First and last name, Class
period, and station #. Portfolios will be thrown away if they are not labeled!

Computer Equipment Care
Students are expected to help with keeping all computers in working order. Any
student that is found to be damaging computer equipment or wasting supplies
could be banned from working on the computers during class time. Damage
shall include any unnecessary markings (i.e. graffiti), or any other time
determined to be abusive to the equipment as determined by the instructor. The
student’s parent or guardian would be required to make reimbursement for all
damages, and criminal charges for vandalism can be filed against the student. If
a student is found to have knowledge of others vandalizing equipment without
notifying the teacher, or an administrator, the student and his or her
parent/guardian can be held liable for a portion of the cost of repair.

Internet Policy
As per DISD guidelines, students are responsible for their actions while using the
Internet. While DISD does have firewalls and other security to keep students
from non-educational and inappropriate sites, it is ultimately the student’s
responsibility. If a student is found on any site determined to be inappropriate
(examples: chat rooms, weapon-related pages, music lyric web sites, on-line
games sites), the student can loose access to school computers and course
credit. In order to be safe students should always check with the instructor prior
to use.

I understand these policies and accept these policies.
