Semester final exam grades for Choir
Choir students are required to attend end of semester choir performances. The
performances are at McAuliffe in the cafetorium and the student must be on time and in
uniform to receive the grade of 100% for the semester final exam grade. If for any reason
there is an emergency and the student can not attend the performance, a written exam will
be given on the day of the final exam.

Academic Integrity:
Plagiarism is defined as “the use of any other person’s work as one’s own and the
unacknowledged use of that work in one’s own work.” All work must be the student’s
own work. Any plagiarized work will result in a grade of zero along with a parent-
teacher-administrator conference.
A student will be responsible for obtaining and completing the make-up work in a
satisfactory manner and within the time specified by the district policy. Students will ask
teacher for missed assignments after returning from absence.

Missing Work/Late Work:
Assignments given in this class are not optional. If you do not do the assignment you
will receive a zero for the assignment, until the assignment is turned in. Late work will
be accepted at 10 points off per day.

Classroom Rules/Expectations:
