Class Rules And Policies
2010 – 2011
Mr. G. Creel
My goal is to teach students how to think; not merely what to think.
BASICALLY it is like this… Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do!
1. Be thoughtful.
2. Be ready.
3. Be attentive.
4. Be prompt.
5. Be polite.
BASICALLY it is like this… Treat other – including the teacher – the way you want to be treated!
1. Stay awake.
2. Clean up after yourself.
3. Listen when the teacher is talking.
4. Groom yourself at home or in the restroom.
5. Chew on your lip… not pens, pencils, or gum.
6. Keep your private notes and conversation to yourself.
Follow protocols and procedures of Maplesville High School and the Chilton County Board of Education.
DISCIPLINE, CONDUCT, AND PROCEDURES:
BASICALLY it is like this… The teacher wants to teach you, not babysit!
- The teacher follows the Student / Parent Information Guide established by the Chilton County Board of Education and distributed to each student. This teacher also follows the expectations, policies, and procedures established by Maplesville High School administration. The Student Guide is found at: http://www.chilton.k12.al.us/Student%20Guide/Student%20Guide.html .
- Supplemental encouraging, motivational, disciplinary, or punitive measures may be given by the teacher either individually, as a group, or as a class as needed.
Students are expected to exhibit honesty in all class work. Cheating, plagiarism, and other forms of dishonesty are not tolerated. Procedures and protocols established by Maplesville High School and the Chilton County Board of Education will be followed.
Policies and protocols of the Chilton County Board of Education and Maplesville High School will be followed, as detailed in the Student / Parent Information Guide.
COMPUTER LAB AND LIBRARY:
It is expected that students remain focused on the work at hand Do not “surf the web,” listen to music, play games, or check personal accounts during class time. Going to the library or computer lab does not mean “Free Day.”
Homework will be given nearly every school night. Many assignments must be read and completed outside of class. Appendix “D” of the Alabama Course of Study speaks of the requirements.
Any late assignment is automatically deducted 10% per day late. Unless you have an emergency situation, you are expected to have your work in on time. You have the syllabus available with assignments and due dates. You need to plan your work around all extracurricular activities and time away from school. You may turn assignments in early. If you know you are going to be absent or have a busy day… turn your work in early! No assignments will be accepted the week prior to report cards being finalized (i.e. midterm and final).
PROTOCOL FOR SUBMITTING WORK:
- Work must be in black or blue ink unless preapproved
- Paper is to be free of all fringes and “frilly edges”
- If more than one page per assignment is submitted, place staple in top left corner
- All submitted pages are to be on white paper (no graph paper)
- On the top right corner of the paper print legibly:
ACCESS TO INFORMATION:
Assignments, lecture notes, presentations, forms, et cetera are available for viewing and download from computer terminals in the classroom and from the following website: Creel.educatorpages.com
