If a student is absent (excused) for only one class
meeting, then upon return, the student is expected to submit any work that
was due during the absence. If a test was missed, the student is expected to take the test on the day of
return. If a student misses
two or more consecutive class meetings, then the student should talk to the
instructor on the day of return to devise a plan to catch up.
For planned absences (e.g., college visits, conference attendance,
etc.), the student should discuss the plan with the instructor in
advance. Failure to do so
will result in an unexcused absence. For
any unexcused absence, homework will not be accepted late and test grades
will be lowered by 10 points per day (counted from the scheduled test date
until the day the test is taken).
You are expected to be in class on time. During each 6-week period, your first tardy will be excused; for each additional tardy, 1 point will be deducted from your overall 6-week average.
You are expected to work diligently during class time, both during class discussions/lectures and during independent work time. During independent work time you are expected to work on mathematics unless you have completed the current assignment; in that case, you may do any academic work. Any disruptive behavior during class will result in a 1 point deduction from your overall 6-week average; there will be no warnings, just the penalty. Also, you can receive more than one penalty in a day. You can also receive a penalty for goofing off, even though you are not disruptive.
Students are required to pledge all work that they turn in for a grade. Please refer to the CVGS Student Handbook for complete requirements.
