will be determined by the offence.

5. Be responsible for the condition of their computer:
Students must report any problems/ condition they find with their computer at the beginning of class 
or after starting them up. Failure to do so could result in being responsible for it’s condition and possible cost for repairs and disciplinary action depending on the severity.

6. Use the Internet responsibly:

Absences well be dealt with according to the school’s policy. 
If a student is absent on the day of a project, the project is considered late unless the school and teacher are contacted/notified by a parent or guardian within 24hr’s of the excussed absents. If a student is absent for 5 consecutive days or more the project will not be excepted unless a written note or the school is contacted and notified by a parent or guardian about the length of the absents and it is excussed.

All projects are expected to be turned in and completed on the assigned due date!

following the due date, and may be marked down one full grade. 
Any work turned in after that will not be excepted.

Grades are based on a Standard Grading System
Scale: Each assignment will vary in points depending upon it’s complexity and degree of difficulty.  
All work will have a point value. Grades are based on class projects, art critiques, 
writing assignments, class participation, and growth. A rubric will be provided for selected 
projects clarifying students expectations.

Work habit marks are based on a combination of class criteria: Ready to work, assignments completed on time, class participation, amount of absents, time spent out of class using the bathroom (bathroom use is based at the end of each mester on the amount of times and length of time out of class: 2 or less times “E” 3 - 5 times “S” 5 or more times “U”).

Cooperation marks are based on a combination of class criteria: attitude, use of inappropriate language, continued interruptions due to talking, attitude during class participation, and use and care of equipment.

Parents are welcomed to sit in on the class any time. Please call the school to set up
an appointment in advanced. (818) 686-4100
