    Each student will be given a Notetaking Guide replaceable for a \$1.50 fee.

Materials
Students are responsible for bringing the following materials to class on a daily basis:

* Textbook                    * Pencil & Pen                * Graph Paper                *Notetaking guide

*Paper, either in a 3 ring binder or a spiral notebook                                   *Scientific Calculator
Make-Up Work/Cheating

1. Work missed due to absences must be turned in within one week of returning to school. A grade of 0
will be given for work that is not made up in the appropriate time interval.

2. All tests and quizzes missed due to absences must be made-up at a time that can be agreed upon by
both the teacher and student. This date must be within one week of the student returning to school.
3. Assignments that are due on the day of an absence are due the first day the student returns to
school.

4. Late work WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED. Late work is defined as work that is assigned while a student is
present in class and not turned in to the teacher when expected.

5. Copying another student’s paper, either partially or in full will result in the grade of zero for BOTH
students involved. A warning is given for the first offense and a referral for any offense there after. It
is the student’s responsibility to cover their own work and to keep their eyes on their own paper.
Sharing of work will not be tolerated.

Each student’s semester average will be computed using the following percentages:

TESTS                         40%                                    A: 90 - 100

FINAL EXAM (EOCT)             15%

Extra Help: Tutoring is available before and after school most days. A list of teachers and times will be
available by the second week of school. Please check with the teacher ahead of time so that we may
plan accordingly.

Tests: Tests will be announced at least 2 days ahead of time and will be given throughout the
semester. If you are not present the day of the class review it is expected that you will review on your
own and be prepared to take the test with the class.
Daily/Tasks: You can expect to have an assignment most days. Daily work includes homework, notes,

Quizzes: Quizzes will be given periodically. A quiz may not be announced ahead of time.

Benchmark Statement: Benchmark assessments will be given at the 9th week into the grading period. It
will be a cumulative multiple-choice assessment.

ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

All students must agree to the acceptable use policy before using computer technology at Archer High school.
Every time you sign on to use a computer this policy will be displayed. The “Acceptable Use Policy” states, “The
internet is intended for educational purposes only. It is against school policy to submit, publish, or display any
defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, racially offensive, or illegal
material. Students may not access E-mail or chat sessions or computer hacking web sites of any kind. Students

is not limited to the hard drive. By logging into this computer, YOU ARE ACCEPTING RESPONSIBILITY of what
internet sites are viewed and any other inappropriate activities that may occur. All violations of the county and
school ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY will result in a disciplinary referral to the Administration of Archer High School.”

GATEWAY REMINDER
I understand that I will be assessed for learning of the AKS by the High School Gateway Test in the Spring of my
10th grade year. I must earn a passing score for all parts of the test in order to earn a regular Gwinnett County
diploma. Should I not pass the Gateway, I will have the opportunity for academic interventions and to retake
the failed portion(s) of the Gateway. In addition to the High School Gateway Test, graduation requirements
include passing scores on the Georgia High School Graduation Tests and earning adequate Carnegie Units.

Parent Contact: GRADES WILL BE SENT HOME ELECTRONICALLY ON A WEEKLY BASIS!

****Progress Reports will go out at 6 and 12 weeks*****

Tutoring: A list of non-school tutors is available on the teacher website. Reminder, these people are
not endorsed by the school. For more information you must call the person.

Books: Students will need to bring their books to class daily. There will NOT be any extra books in
the classroom.
Integrated Algebra 1
Fall 2009-2010

I have read and understand the information presented in this document. I will, to the best of my ability as a student or
parent, work to fulfill the aforementioned requirements.
