I will be your child’s math teacher this year. I look forward to a very productive and successful year. To ensure your full cooperation, I would like to explain my classroom management plan and classroom policies.
If a student breaks a rule, the following consequences will occur:
Depending on the severity of the disruption or behavior, consequences will range from staying after class or after school with the most severe resulting in a trip to see the principal. If detention is given and the student does not attend, a referral to the principal’s office will be made.
It is my primary goal that your child succeeds in his or her classes. A secondary goal, though no less important than my primary goal, is that your child succeed in his or her math courses in college should he or she choose to attend. With your cooperation, I believe your child will have a successful year. If I can be of any assistance, or if you have any questions regarding my policies, please do not hesitate to contact me at (432) 652-3666 ext. 476 or firstname.lastname@example.org. If you desire a parent/teacher conference at any time, please feel free to contact the high school and set up a meeting.
My grading policy is consistent with the standards set by the district. Your child’s grade will be determined by the following percentages:
Major Grades .…………………………….. 60%
Minor Grades ...........……………………... 40%
There will be many grading opportunities for each student. There will not be a six-week test as I feel each student has already been adequately evaluated over the material covered in a six weeks. As the district policy prescribes, unless exempt, each student will take a semester exam which will account for 25% on the semester average. Work is considered late when it is not in the classroom at the date it is due. Work that is left in one’s locker is considered late. Points will be deducted for late work.
It is the student’s responsibility to ask for make-up work and have that work turned in within the time allowed. A student is not permitted to make up work during class instruction time.
Please sign the form below acknowledging that you and your child have read and understand my policies and have your child keep the first page in their binder and return the second page to me.
