You will accumulate points throughout the semester. Your grade is based on your overall percentage of points. There will be no extra credit. Late work will not be accepted more than 1 week from the due date. Late work will have point deductions.

All homework is due at the BEGINNING of class unless otherwise stated.


Incidences of cheating will result in a ZERO on the assignment or project and include (but are not limited to):

1. Having a cell phone out during a test for ANY reason.
2. Talking during a test or quiz or sharing answers.
3. Copying a homework assignment from a classmate
4. Plagiarism: copying written work from sources without proper citation

Academic dishonesty is treated very seriously. An incident of cheating will result in a notation in your student records which may affect your chances of behing accepted into the National Honor Society.


Make-up work from absences should be requested, make arrangements to make up tests before or after school. Tests are posted a week in advance, being absent the day before a test will not excuse you from the test.
