• Requirements, Responsibilities, and Procedures

    1.   A three ring binder notebook with pockets is required for this class.  It should be 1.5” to 2” thick. Students will keep all class work, homework, notes, handouts, tests, etc. in this binder for this class. AVID binders are fine also.  STUDENTS ARE TO NEVER THROW AWAY ANY WORK OR NOTES FROM THIS CLASS.  
    2. Students are to use standard blue/ black ink or pencil on all assignments or can be typed.  Also, papers with tattered edges will not be accepted.

    Make-up Work

    1. A student can make up any work missed during absences and out-of-school suspensions. The student will receive 2 days per absence to make up missing work that was assigned while absent.  Any work assigned prior to absences and due on an absence date are due upon the student’s return.
    2. Missing work is ANY assignment (major, minor, daily, etc.) that a student did not complete for reasons other than absences. In an effort to provide intervention and support for students, Southern Lee High School will implement the following missed work policy:  

    Academic Level Classes

    • Students may make up a maximum of 2 missed assignments per interim period (approx. every 3 weeks; interim dates are in Student handbook and posted in the classroom)
    • Maximum grade of 70
    1. Honesty is expected! Any cheating and parents and administration will be notified. 
    2. Each student is responsible for bringing his/her own materials to class everyday.  You should not be depending on me or your classmate to loan you materials.
    3.   Only one student will be allowed out of the classroom on a pass at a time. Students must fill out the pass log completely and legibly each time a pass is used to leave class.  Permission to leave class is at the teacher’s discretion. Do not ask to leave the class the first and last 10 minutes, as this is a school rule.  I will not allow you to leave class when I am teaching / presenting.

    2. Continued disruptions of similar nature (in the same or different class periods) will be documented, a parent called, and student referred to administration for disciplinary action.
    3. Any severe infraction, (blatant disrespect, fighting, illegal substance, etc. ) will result in an immediate referral to administration or school resource officer
