WiFi to be used in classrooms for teachers who have participated in BYOD
training. However though it does state device, a handheld device will limit
student’s ability for test-taking and Power Point Notes. For these courses a
laptop or tablet will be more applicable
Each student is responsible for reading the syllabus and becoming familiar with my expectations and policies. Although every effort will be made to follow this syllabus closely, it is subject to change. WHEN IN DOUBT
REFER TO YOUR STUDENT HANDBOOK. You are responsible for any announcements
concerning the course which are made during class, whether or not you are in attendance. If you miss class for any reason, you will need to ask a classmate for any notes written/discussed
during your absence. It is the student’s responsibility to check with me before or after class for any missed work AFTER you have spoken to a classmate. Missed work is found in your subject’s file. I will ask for homework assignments at the beginning of class. Unexcused
absences are not tolerated; there is no makeup work for unexcused absences. I
have an open door policy, but sometimes I may be in a meeting or unavailable. When you need to see me, it is best to set up an appointment to make up work, test, extra help on assignments, or projects. I am always available to help you with work for this course; however I will not “DO” the work for you. **HOMEWORK is only given when necessary and is expected to be turned in at the
beginning of class and completed by ALL students! **
ACK! You’ve Missed Class! Now What?
Due to unforeseen reasons, doctor, dentist, or orthodontist appointments, you may miss class. However due to the nature of this course and the PROJECTS please consider that when
scheduling appointments. First off, if you are going to be gone from class it is highly recommended to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and give a brief explanation of what is going on and when I can expect you back. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR LECTURES AND
WORK GIVEN AND COMPLETED DURING YOUR ABSENCE. Check with a fellow
classmate to get notes missed & check with me to get the Worksheets the class received during your absence. I will assign a date for your makeup work to be completed; work not completed on time will receive a zero. If you have
questions, please feel free to see me after you have spoken to a classmate and I am always available for an appointment. If you know you will be gone for several days in advance, please set up an appointment at least 24 hours before your absence so we can discuss work to be done while you are gone and file and notes you may need.

What is Work Ethics?
A work ethic is defined as a set of values based on hard work and diligence. A good work ethic includes being reliable, having initiative, or pursuing new skills. Employees exhibiting a good work ethic are often noticed and selected for better positions, more responsibility and ultimately promotion. Employees
who fail to exhibit a good work ethic may be regarded as failing to provide fair value for the wage the employer is paying them and often are not promoted or placed in positions of greater responsibility.
