Policies in IPC

Here you will find information about how I conduct my class.  Conduct, Tardies, Grading, Tutoring and Extra Credit are all addressed.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Tardies: Tardies are unacceptable in IPC.  In conjunction with school policy, each tardy is rewarded with an after school Detention Hall.

Conduct: I expect and demand all students to behave with respect towards me and one another. 

Tutoring: I am available every day before and after school for anyone who needs help.  I arrive every morning at 6:30 AM and I leave after the last student has left.  Any day you feel that you would benefit from some extra help, please come in and get that help.  There are only two guidelines: 1) Please bring a tutoring permission slip, as per school policy.  2) If you intend to come in the morning, please let me know ahead of time.

Grading: 50% Exams, 30% Labs, 20% Daily Work.  Exams are given at least one week notice.  Any quizzes count as double daily grades.  Lab Reports are given 2 days to be completed, and are expected to be the full 6-part Scientific Process.  At the end of each 6 weeks, I will drop the lowest daily or lab grade.  Extra credit is offered in the form of bonus questions on quizzes and exams, as well as recognition for superior work on Lab Reports.
