CAREER CENTER EXPECTATIONS All Career Center classes strive to prepare students for adult life by teaching skills and behaviors that will be valued in the workplace. The following expectations are stressed and graded in all Career Center classes. Your instructor will review these, provide instruction in all areas and answer any questions. Attendance – Be here on time each day, prepared to work, dressed appropriately Respect – Use appropriate language, be honest and truthful, be respectful of peers and adults, Safety – Follow safety rules and procedures, keep work area orderly Responsibility – Complete work on time, follow directions, use resources to answer questions, ask for help when needed, contribute to class discussion Quality – Show determination to complete tasks, be consistent in quality, focus on the task at hand Team – Work as a productive team member in a variety of roles, communicate in a sensitive way 1 of 8 GRADING SYSTEM Grades in this class will be determined by the total number of points earned at the end of each quarter. Quarter grades will be averaged to compute semester grade. This grade will translate into a letter grade based on the following scale: A 94-100 C 73-76 A- 90-93 C- 70-72 B+ 87-89 D+ 67-69 B 83-86 D 63-66 B- 80-82 D- 60-62 C+ 77-79 F below 60 Four parts determine the grade for electronics class: Test grade 34%, Classwork grade 28%, and Workplace Expectations grade 28%, and final exam 10%. ATTENDANCE Students are expected to be in class daily and to be engaged in the learning process. Regular attendance is essential for success in school and in life. Research shows that students with 95% or above attendance are more successful academically by earning better grades and performing better on college entrance exams. Our attendance goal for all students is 95% or better. A portion of the class grade is based on Career Center Expectations, which includes attendance and participation in class, lab, shop, or worksites. Absences, except those for a school-sponsored activity, may affect a student’s grade. MAKE-UP WORK The following is an overview of how the Career Center treats make-up work. Individual course syllabi will have specific details of make-up work procedures. Excused (Parent Excused, Excused, Medical, Field Trips) All missed work may be made up at full credit. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate contact with the teacher to get make up work. Work must be made up in a timely fashion, generally within the same number of days as the absence (e.g. absent 2 days, work made up in 2 days). Participation points may be lost due to absence. Students may possibly make up lost points by working in the classroom/shop/lab outside of class time or through alternate assignments determined by the instructor. However, in some classes experiences are limited and opportunities to repeat them are not available. Suspension & Unexcused (ISS, OSS) and Verified Absences Missed work may be made up at 75% It is the student’s responsibility to initiate contact with the teacher to get make up work. Work must be made up in a timely fashion, generally within the same number of days as the absence (e.g. absent 2 days, work made up in 2 days). Instructors may expect students to make up work during suspension and submit upon returning to school. Participation points will be lost due to absence. Students may possibly make up lost points by working in the classroom/shop/lab outside of class time or through alternate assignments determined by the instructor. However, in some classes experiences are limited and opportunities to repeat them are not available. 2 of 8 Truancy Classwork may not be made up. This will result in zero credit for missed work. Students will lose participation points. Students will not be permitted to make up exams or quizzes. RETURN POLICY FOR SECOND SEMESTER Students who are performing below average, or who are failing the semester are subject to removal from the program at semester. A student/parent conference will be held prior to the end of the semester with the appropriate individuals present and alternatives will be discussed. PREREQUISITE FOR ADVANCED COURSES To be eligible to take advanced courses, a student must meet the prerequisites for the course in which he/she wishes to enroll. Prerequisites vary by course, but generally include a minimum grade and satisfactory performance on attendance and Career Center Expectations. See individual course descriptions for specific prerequisite information. If the curriculum for a prerequisite course is modified in any way, a pass/fail grade is issued. Pass/fail grades do not satisfy the grade requirement to take advanced courses. ACADEMIC INTEGRITY The integrity of the academic program and the evaluation of each student’s achievement are of primary concern to educational institutions. Cheating on an educational exercise not only reflects dishonesty on the part of the student, but also diminishes the value of the work done by his/her classmates. Students who cheat or plagiarize (using another’s words, ideas or writing as one’s own) shall be subject to the following: referral to the assistant director; parent/guardian contacted; a zero recorded for the exercise; possible detention and/or suspension; and/or removal from the course with a grade of “F” recorded on the transcript. STUDENT SERVICES Student services are available to help students succeed in their technical classes. Students in technical programs are eligible for extra assistance by asking for help or by having their teacher refer them to the Student Services team. There are reading specialists, a math specialist, counselors and resource personnel who will help students in classrooms, by appointment and/or before and after school with any problems they are having in their technical classes. An employment specialist is available to students who are looking for part-time or full-time jobs. In addition, persons knowledgeable about financial aid for post high school training/education are available, as well as persons who can help students assess their vocational strengths and preferences in order to make more informed career choices. INSTRUCTOR’S PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND Mr. Chott has extensive experience working in industry with design, implementation, and maintenance of industrial electronic systems and controls. STUDENT YOUTH ORGANIZATION Skills USA is the vocational student organization for persons in the Trade & Industry program area of Electronics. Students participate voluntarily in Skills USA through leadership activities, fund raising activities, and skills contests (local, district, state, and national). 3 of 8 DISCRIMINATION POLICY As a political subdivision, employer, recipient of federal funds, and an education institution, the Board of Education is prohibited from, and hereby declares a policy against, engaging in unlawful discrimination.
