Grades are earned from attendance, projects, assignments and tests. Zeroes and absences are devastating to your grade!!
Late Work & Extra Credit
Late work is NOT generally accepted. Avoid problems by planning ahead. Extra credit will never be given as a substitute for regular classroom work that was not done on time. However, there are some occasions for extra work that could provide positive points toward a better grade.
Plagiarism, stealing or using other people’s ideas and passwords, will not be accepted. During tests take the utmost care that you do not allow anyone to cheat or copy from your work and that you do not cheat or copy as it will result in a zero for the assignment for all involved.
The absolute worst thing you can do in this class is to be absent. Students are responsible for staying after school to make up any missed assignments. It is imperative that the assignments are done within the computer lab so that I may assist you.
