Class participation not only includes actively participating in class discussions, but also being on time and prepared for class with all necessary materials (binder, pen/pencil, completed assignments, and agenda).
It is the responsibility of every student to make up any missed work which results from being absent. The student will have five days from the date of returning to school to make up any assignments, tests, or quizzes. If work is not completed within that time, it will result in a grade of zero for the missed work. If a student will be out for an extended period of time, parents/guardians should feel free to contact JWB to get assignments sent home.
Homework is due at the beginning of the period on the due date assigned. Any homework handed in after that time will be considered late and will not receive full credit.
