Student Expectations
 
Each student will arrive on time, prepared and ready to contribute to each class.
 
Each student will be respectful of each other’s opinions and contributions to class; as well as have general respect for our classroom, personal belongings and behaviors towards one another.
 
Each student will complete all class work, homework, projects and assessments, as assigned.
 
Each student will turn in his or her own creative and original work. Cheating, plagiarism and fabrication will not be tolerated.
 
Students will abide by the Tiger Q policies.
 
Class Materials
 
Students should bring the following materials with them to class daily:
  • 3 ring binder
  • pens
  • pencils
  • eraser
  • open mind 
 
 
Grading System
 
Grades will be calculated using Total Points. Each assignment will have a point value attached to it.
Typical Assignments may include, but are not limited to:
 
    -class work                                -homework                                             -class participation                     
   -projects                                    -current events
 
Final grades will also include participation in a Final Exam. 
Final Grade for full year course = S1 (45%) + S2 (45%) + Final Assessment (10%)
 
 
Technology
 
Students are expected to check THS Special Education website daily for Homework and other important updates about class. http://study-skills-homework-website.hs.tenafly.k12.nj.us/modules/groups/integrated_home.phtml?gid=2341462&sessionid=3aae353f80a020a39712e6d7d03c8877
 
It is also a good habit for students to check their school email daily.
 
Cell phones should not be used or sitting on top of student desks during class, unless they are relevant to a class activity.
 
Attendance, Absences & Make Up Work
 
All students are expected to be in Transition class everyday, unless absences are verified and or excused.
“Students missing more than eighteen school days in full year courses will have credits withheld/denied for those courses” (Tiger Q, p 10).  Attendance can be monitored via the Parent Portal. 
 
Class cuts are unexcused absences. Students will receive a zero for all graded assignments they have missed due to the class cut. Further consequences will be managed by administration.  
 
Students who are absent should make time to meet with me upon their arrival back to school to discuss the work they have missed. Students receive the equivalent of the days they were absent to make up missing work.
 
Extra Help
 
I am available most days before and after school, and also throughout the school day. Students should make an appointment with me for extra help, and make sure I have confirmed that appointment.  Appointments are encouraged to ensure my availability and undivided attention in assisting students with their needs.
