    • Participation – A participation grade will be given to each student after every class. The grades are as follows:


    5 points = Actively participates, works diligently, cooperates with others, no     warnings.


    3 points = One warning maximum about staying on task or disruptive behavior during class.


    0 points = Disruptive behavior, multiple warnings (detention), not participating, not working, not cooperating with others.


    *All participation grades are based on the total number of points the student earns during the twelve week period (a maximum of 5 points per class period can be earned).


    Make-up/Missed Work:

                *You are given two weeks from the due date to make up any incomplete work. Work that is not made up will be recorded as a zero.
