Absences/ Late Work
Attendance in class is paramount to success, as students miss the interactions with other students and first-hand experience with new knowledge. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain the work for the day(s) missed due to any absence. This may require make-up time before or after school.
Part of the responsibility of any citizen is punctuality and this is also true for my students. I expect my students to be on time for class and prepared with all materials. Tardies will be regarded in teh same way as absences, and will require make-up time. Excessive tardiness is defined as more than two instances, and may result in referral to administration.
In the event that a student is found to cheat/ have cheated on any work done, it is the policy of the department to follow the following procedures:

Failure to perform at an acceptable level may lead to removal from the class.
Harassment encompasses unwelcome behavior directed at another individual, whether it physical or sexual in nature, verbally communicated or uncommunicated. The School District has guidelines, which are clear on this issue, and harassment of any kind will not be tolerated. Violation will result in sever consequences.
