Behavior Guidelines



Students who follow directions, look and sound engaged in their learning, and turn in assignments
regularly can earn 25% of their total grade and credits for simple class participation and engagement. 
Think of that as the first 2 of the 5 credits you need for a course each semester. All you have to 
do is look and act like someone who cares about learning and being responsible. 

Class participation points are based on working for the entire class time. Leaving your seat or
stopping working reduces those points dramatically. Students who work quietly earn points every 
day for class participation. 

Follow the guidelines listed below to earn full participation points: 
  • Punctual students who have all required materials and books will earn participation point every day.
  • All tardies and absences affect your participation grade. 
  • Use the materials and equipment that we provide wisely. Do not abuse or misuse them. 
  • Ask permission to leave the room. Don’t go often, especially during lectures or directions.  
  • Push in your chair and clean up any mess before you leave the class. 
  • Follow cell phone and dress code guidelines 
  • Refrain from using profanity to avoid losing points.
