You will take this in August, January, and April.
Measure Academic Progress (MAP): This is a new testing system, which is replacing Think Link. You will take this in August, January, and April.
You will take that test on 5 consecutive days during the last 2 weeks of school; the exact days of the test will be announced later in the school year.
Outside Readings: You will be required to complete novel projects outside of classroom time each nine weeks. Each assignment will be customized to address your individual needs.
Binder Section Labels--You will need a 1” or 1 ½” binder (with pockets) and dividers. Label the tabs, in order, as follows:
- Standards Checklist
- Bell Ringers
- PLAN/EOC (9th grade PLAN; 10th grade EOC)
You must sign out/in each time you have permission to leave the classroom. If your asking to leave the classroom becomes habitual, you and I will address the issue.
Grading: (as per SBDM policy 2.1)
Class Activities: 20% (per nine weeks, totaling 80%)
EOC/Final Exam: 15%

Each day an assignment is late will result in a deduction of 10 points per day.
