Room 222 Policies & Procedures

Students will meet these four simple expectations to create a safe, positive, and rewarding learning environment:
  • Be prompt
  • Be prepared
  • Be productive
  • Be polite
Additionally, students in all courses are expected to follow the guidelines listed below in order to be successful.

Attendance

Attending class every day is essential to your success.  Please follow the steps below when an excused absence due to illness, activity or family situation occurs:
  1. If you are aware of the absence ahead of time, check with your teacher and collect any materials or assignments necessary.
  2. If the absence is unexpected, check with your teacher as soon as you return to collect any materials or assignments necessary.
  3. Be prepared to turn in any previously assigned work and/or complete scheduled assessments upon your return.
Grading Policies

Grade Components: Students will earn an A-F grade based primarily on summative assessments, though formative assignments will also be a factor.

Due Dates: All students are expected to submit work at the beginning of the period on the assigned due date, unless alternate arrangements have been made between the teacher and student prior to the due date. 

Late Work:  Any work submitted after the beginning of the period on the assigned due date will be considered “late” and eligible for a maximum of 50% credit. Late work will be accepted until the student has completed the summative assessment for the unit.

Missing Work: Any missing work will be given “0” credit until it is turned in. No missing work will be accepted after the summative assessment for the unit has taken place.

Extra Credit: No extra credit projects will be offered, so be prepared to perform at your highest level on all assessments and assignments.

Final Grades: Trimester grades are a reflection of student mastery and will not be rounded, up or down, for any reason.  Students are responsible for the grades they earn.

Course Credit

Students must earn a D- or above in order to receive credit for any course at Woodbury High School.  Successful completion of both freshman and sophomore social studies courses is required to graduate.  

Academic Honesty

Cheating and plagiarism are prohibited at Woodbury High School.  Students who cheat or commit plagiarism on any assignment or assessment will receive zero credit and are subject to discipline in accordance with the school's Academic Honesty Policy.

Electronic Devices

Woodbury High School’s electronics policy allows the use of electronic devices at the discretion of the teacher when they facilitate the learning process.  As these tools have become more sophisticated, they have become both more useful and more distracting.  As a result, students are required to check-in any personal devices at the beginning of the class period.  If they are necessary to facilitate learning, students will be allowed to retrieve them. 

In addition, our classroom is equipped with iPads.  The use of any technology, whether personal or school property, in the classroom is a privilege that can be revoked at any time.
