Cell Phones & Electronic Devices
Cell phones and electronic devices are not allowed during instructional time unless they are used for and assignment or project.
School attendance and tardiness policies are strictly enforced
Each quarter grade will be calculated using Total Points Earned ÷ Total Points Available. Grades will be posted to Phoenix as often as possible. The school codes of “X” (exempt) and “Z” (needs to make up but calculated as a zero) will be used. Retake policy will be discussed in each class.
The purpose of homework is to provide practice not points. There will be projects through the year. All projects are due as assigned with significant penalties for being late.
You are responsible for getting makeup work (notes, homework, quizzes and tests) from me the first day you return to class after being absent.
Math Resource Center
Briar Woods High School has a designated math resource center that you can access during your study hall block. You may request a pass to the math resource center from me any time you would like additional help. I will also recommend that you attend the math resource center any time I feel you would benefit from additional help with a particular concept, especially for remediation prior to SOLs. Please note that you must have a pass to attend the resource center.
