• Regarding Student Absence ....

    Tests and Make-up Work....

    (Please note this page is in black and white - no gray here...)

    When students are absent, they need to make up their work promptly to ensure continued success in chemistry class.  Listed below are suggestions and my policies.
     
    Suggestions:
     
    1.  Obtain the phone number and e-mail addresses of more than one reliable fellow student so that you can find out about work missed due to absence.
     
    2.  Make every attempt to be in class every day you can.
     
    Policies: 
     
    1.     If you were absent from class, school policy dictates that you have at least one school day to make up your work.  My policy is that you have two days.  Of course, extensions are always possible, but only if you ask in advance.

     

    2.     If you miss a test or quiz, you will make up your test in class on your next day back to school or by appointment after school – this decision is made by the teacher of the course.  The instructor usually prefers that you make up the test at clinic.  You should plan on taking tests due to absence on the day of your return to school.  Of course, accommodations will be made in cases of extended absences.  Tests/quizzes should be made up within 2 clinic days following the original test.    Of course, extensions are always possible, but only if you ask in advance.
     
    3.  If a student is absent the day before the test/quiz, this does not excuse the student from taking the test/quiz unless new material was introduced on the day of the absence. 
     
    4.  If a student is absent on any day when material is learned, absence is not an excuse for not knowing the material on the day of a test. 
     
    5.     If there were handouts, you must obtain them from the teacher by asking for them at the beginning of the class period.

     

    6.     Clinic is offered on Tuesday and Thursday after school.  I am also available for help on some other days after school.  Please see me about staying after school for help on other days if you are interested.  Prior notice is appreciated.

     

    7.  If a student is to be absent from class due to a school activity (concert, sporting event, etc.), this does not excuse the student regarding homework that is due that day.  If an assignment is due that day, it is the responsibility of the student to make an extra effort to stop by that day to show the assignment to the instructor or hand it in.  Missing class due to class activities does not excuse the student from class work or homework.
         If a student is absent from class the day homework is assigned, it is the responsibility of the student to contact another student to find out about assignments.  Missing class due to a school activity does not excuse the student from work assigned that day.
     
     
     Please understand that making up work is your responsibility.  I will assist in every way that I can, but ultimately the task is yours.  If you miss turning in an assignment or getting credit for completing the assignment, it is the responsibility of the student to show the work to the instructor/turn in the assignment to get credit!
