Classroom Discipline Plan
In order for all students to be successful, it is extremely important that students follow our classroom rules and procedures. When it becomes necessary to take disciplinary action, the following plan will be followed:
- 1st infraction: warning to student
- 2nd infraction: conference between student and teacher
- 3rd infraction: phone call to parents/lunch detention
- 4th infraction: referral to office
Student grades will be based on the following:
- Summative Assessments (80%): Includes quizzes, tests and projects
- Formative Assessments (20%): Includes classwork/activities, homework assignments, bellwork and participation
Summative and formative grades will be averaged to create a grade for each marking period. Students and parents can expect progress reports periodically AND may access their Parent Connect account at any time to stay updated on your child’s progress.

Other grading policy information
- Late/missing work is accepted up to the date of the assessment for the material presented. Late work will be accepted but students can earn partial points.
- Test makeups are allowed before or after school. If a student is absent and needs to makeup a test, arrangements must be made to do so within 5 days upon returning to school.
- Bellwork: Everyday for the first ten to fifteen minutes of class, there will be a bellwork task assigned. Students must finish this task in class and will receive credit for completing the task in the time allotted. Each day, a bell work assignment will be given a point. At the end of the card marking, all of these points will be added together to get your bell work grade.
- Classwork: This work can be assigned to be accomplished independently, with a partner, or with a group. Class work may follow the various rubrics or may have points that are determined by the amount of work asked for to solve each problem.
- Homework will be assigned on a regular basis, but most days students will be given time to start working and even finish it during class.
Students earning a 70% or lower on a summative assessment will have the option of retaking that assessment one time. There will be a specific day that students can come after school to retake the assessment. The retake will be a different version of the assessment and the highest score earned will be entered into the MiStar gradebook.
- The planner will be used daily in this class. It is extremely important to keep your planner with you at all times. The last 5 minutes of class will be dedicated to “PLANNER TIME”. At that point you will write the homework assignment in your planner as we write it on the planner side of the board.
- Your exit to leave class is by showing us your planner.
