  1.   Respect all members of the learning community.
  2.   Take responsibility!  Hand in your own work on time. Collect make-up work when absent.

  4.   Come to class prepared and bring all materials with you.
  5.   Take bathroom breaks between classes.
  6.   Unless given permission, NO electronic devices allowed in this class.


In an effort to ensure that student grades more accurately reflect skills and abilities, the Language Arts department uses the following categories:

  • Formative assessments (quizzes, daily assignments, discussions, class activities) will count for 0% of the semester grade
  • Summative assessments (tests, papers, projects, speeches) will count for 100%.
  • Semester final will comprise 10% of your final grade for this class.


ELA Late policy:

Formative Assignments: You may turn in late assignments until the end of the unit, after which work will not be accepted.

Summative Assignments: You may turn in late assignments by submitting after TIDE reflection sheet is complete to teacher’s satisfaction.

Help is provided:  Teachers are available to help you before and after school.
