4.  GENESIS

It is your responsibility to stay aware of your progress in math class. You may login and access My Gradebook through Genesis at any time.

 

5.  MAKE UP WORK

            It is the STUDENT’S responsibility to determine what was missed due to absence from class.  You will be responsible for contacting another student if you miss class.  Double check with me, on your return, about all missed work.  If you do not make up your work in a timely manner it will be a ZERO.  Classwork and homework must be made up within the number of days in which you were absent.  Tests and quizzes must also be made up in a timely manner.  If you are absent only on the day of a test/quiz you must be prepared to make it up upon your return to school.

 

6.  EXTRA HELP

            It is your responsibility to see me for extra help if you are having trouble with a particular lesson.  There is also Peer Tutoring sessions available after school.  If you are interested, please contact me.
