If you are ever struggling with a concept, please see me for extra help during tutoring times or you can schedule an appointment for another time that works better.

What if I am Absent?

Daily Lesson Slides & Homework Assignments are posted in Google Classroom. If you don't have access to a printer at home, simply let me know and I'll be glad to print a copy out for you.

It is YOUR responsibility to pick up absent work and schedule a tutoring time to get caught up.

Late Work & Corrections:

  • To receive credit for late assignments, a Late Slip MUST be filled out and turned in to me.
  • IXL assignments: IXL's done on time to the required SMART SCORE (usually 80) are scored 100. Late IXL's will receive the SMART SCORE as the gradebook grade.
  • Homework/Daily Grades: A deduction of 10 points per day will be applied to any assignment turned in after the due date and a Late Slip must be signed.
  • Test corrections: Test scores can be raised to a maximum of 70% if corrected. Corrections MUST be done on the Test correction page (NO EXCEPTIONS).

*** All assignments must be turned in before a unit is complete in order to receive credit***
