Student Expectations:
 Regular attendance is important. If you miss a class, you are responsible for catching up.
 If absent, a call must be made from home to the attendance office or a note is required upon your
   return to school.
 Punctuality is essential.
 You must come prepared to class every day.
 Notebooks are to be kept organized and up to date.
 The student agenda is to be used to record important deadlines, tests, or homework.

 Major tests and assignments will be announced in advance.
 It is the student's responsibility to seek assistance from the teacher when he or she is unable to
   complete an assignment due to insufficient knowledge or skill. Be sure to advise the teacher of this
   difficulty well in advance of the deadline.
 Some deadlines are negotiable. A few are absolute. Work that is not completed on either a
   negotiated or absolute deadline may not be evaluated.
 Chronic lateness in submitting assignments or completing tests, may prevent the teacher from
   evaluating a student's ability to demonstrate the course expectations and may require the student to
   demonstrate his or her knowledge and skills within an alternate setting such as summer school.

Missed Summative Assessments:
 Students who know ahead of time that they will miss an assessment are expected to discuss the
   situation beforehand with the subject teacher.
 Students who miss an in-class summative assessment for an unauthorized reason may lose the
   opportunity to complete the task.
 Students who are absent on the day of an assessment for reasons such as illness, field trip, or
   suspension are responsible for:
         The work covered and assigned during the class
         The handing in of assignments at a time negotiated with the teacher
         The writing of any missed tests at a time negotiated with the teacher
 After a legitimate prolonged absence (more than two days) the student is to make arrangements with
   the teacher immediately upon returning to school for an alternative date for the missed assessment.
