END-OF-PATHWAY ASSESSMENT:

After completing the three courses in a pathway, students will be prepared to take an End-of-Pathway exam to certify knowledge, skill and understanding. Completing the assessment successfully, allows the student to earn certification in Business and Technology and/or Entrepreneurship under the Business Management & Administration Career Cluster. This mandate for end of pathway assessment, set forth in the new Perkins IV Legislation, requires states to implement a mechanism to ascertain the level of the technical skill attainment on behalf of its CTAE students. Students also have the opportunity to take MOUS certifications in Excel and Access through this course.

WORKLOAD EXPECTATIONS:

Students are expected to complete all class work in the classroom. No homework unless a project is assigned since there is only one set of textbooks that are kept in the classroom.

GRADING:

Progress reports will be issued at 4 ½ weeks and 13 ½ weeks; a parent/guardian’s signature is required on the progress reports. Report cards will be sent out at 9 weeks and 18 weeks. A midterm exam and a final exam will be given.

INTERNET USAGE IN CLASS SETTING:

In order to enhance student learning, students will use the Internet as a resource tool. Barrow County Schools has a published policy on student use of the Internet. While in a business and computer science lab, students will comply with all county guidelines. Failure to follow county mandated guidelines would result in punishment that ranges from loss of privileges to administrative referral. All students and parents are required to sign acknowledgement of Internet guidelines prior to a student using the Internet.

By signing below, I am indicating I agree to follow the guidelines as stated including the Internet and classroom policies listed in the student handbook. I acknowledge that this is a lab class and understand the students will be working with power equipment. Students will complete paper-pencil tests and computer-based tests along with surveys related to course content. Parents are encouraged to access their child’s grades and attendance daily via “parent-portal” a website supported by Barrow County Schools. See Barrow County School Web site for paperwork.
