(Participation includes: being on time, prepared for class,
participating in class discussions, cleaning-up, responsible use of
equipment & supplies, work ethic, and generally doing what you are
suppose to do everyday).
Classroom Procedures
In order to meet the aforementioned learning goals
students are expected to:
o be in class on time every day
o music with headphones only allowed at work time
o no cellphones
o be prepared for class everyday (must have a pencil
and journal everyday)
o work productively in class everyday and take
responsibility for their own work
o clean up after themselves and help to maintain the
classroom environment
o work independently when the teacher is working with
other students
Late work will be accepted when the student
discusses the situation with the teacher, otherwise late

work will be accepted with credit loss. Final deadline for all
late work is 5 school days prior to exam day (end of term).
After 5 absences it becomes difficult to know what is going
on in a lab class where most of the information is delivered
via demonstrations and lectures. In these cases, the
student will be given alternative assignments that can be
done without the missed instruction.
Students who misuse the classroom equipment or supplies
will be given alternative assignments that can be done
without the classroom equipment and supplies.
Students will need a flash or thumb drive that will hold 8GB/16GB
or 32GB. Students will have room on the desktop in the lab but
they will need to back up their work. I will provide a journal with
graph paper.
Mastery Learning
Each student in the arts will accomplish a set of benchmarks in a
cyclical manner of learning where the students demonstrate
their ability of each skill, working towards the National
