LATE WORK:
All assignments will be given a "due date." This means the assignment will be due at the end of that class period. However, since we do not meet every day, the "late date" will be at 7:50am the next day the class meets.
i.e. Today is Monday and an assignment is "due." It will go into the gradebook and a zero will be given if it is not turned in. However, if it is turned in by the following Class Day (Wednesday) by 750am it will still receive full credit. After 7:50 it will require a "late assignment" pass be stapled to it or it will receive only half of the credit earned.

Assignment grades will not be posted until after the due date. If an assignment is not turned in at that time either on time or late with a pass a zero will be given. The zero will remain until the assignment is turned in to be graded. This will give an accurate calculation of where your grade currently stands.

ASSIGNMENTS:
If you miss class and an assignment is given, the handout will be in the 3-ring binder by the door. Each student's name will be written at the top in red ink. It will also be posted below in the Classroom Handouts section of this page if an electronic copy is available. It will be a PDF file so that you may print it and begin working at homef you so choose. If it is a photocopied assignment and a PDF is not available you will need to stop in the class before/after school to get a copy of the assignment out of the binder.
