Class Rules

There are certain guidelines and rules which students are expected to follow while attending the Cardston High School and my classes. I will point out below the expectations, rules and guidelines which students are expected to follow in my classes.

Course & Class Guidelines
  1. Attendance is essential if you want to pass the modules in this class. If you miss too many classes, you will find it very difficult to catch up. There are many visual lessons and examples that I will give to you during this modules.
  2. If you miss more than four classes during a module, prior experience shows that your chances of completing and earning credits for that modules is very unlikely.
  3. Do not be late. If I have shown the class how to do certain projects and assignments for the first 15-30 minutes of a class and you come late, I will not repeat the lesson again while I should be helping others that are now working on their projects. You will be responsible to find someone else in the classroom to help you or meet with me after school to catchup on the missed work.
  4. Lates = Automatic Detention at noon or after school.
  5. Talking when I am talking = Automatic Detention.
  6. All assignments must be completed to receive your credit for a module. Failure to do so will mean that you have not fulfilled the Alberta Ed. Requirements for that module and I cannot legal pass you or give you credit for that module.
  7. You will be able to earn four credits in this class if you keep up with all assignments and projects. This is not a difficult course if you are willing to complete all your projects and assignments.
  8. You are responsible for finding out what work you have missed due to absences and lates.
  9. If you have NOT COMPLETED all the assignments for a module by the time it is finished you are still allowed and able to complete those missing assignments, BUT YOU MUST CONTACT ME and tell me when those missing assignments have been completed and posted on your portfolio. I will then mark them when it is convenient for myself, which may not be until the end of the semester!
  10. No Facebook or other social sites, Youtube, gaming sites or other time wasters during class time. You will periodically allowed to use certain sites such as Facebook and Youtube if the assignment requires you to do so.
    THIS IS NOT FACEBOOK 101!
  11. All cell phones and texting devices must be dropped of into the "Cell Phone Box" at the beginning of class. If you do not want to put it in that box, don't bring it to class. Failure to do so will result in your device being taken to the office and kept there for the rest of the week or weekend depending on when your phone was confiscated.
