    Classroom procedures

     Students should come to class prepared to begin work immediately.

    1. You are here to learn. This cannot be accomplished unless you are listening to the lesson or instructions.  You cannot talk, comb your hair, apply makeup, or pick at the person next to you and listen: these behaviors are not appropriate to the classroom.  You also cannot learn if you are not in the classroom.  Therefore, I suggest you come to class prepared with supplies, a drink and having taken care of any other needs to before coming into class.

    2. You will receive a TARDY if you are not in the room when the bell stops ringing. Tardiness to class causes a disruption and lowers your performance as a student.

    3. Abusive language, either oral or written is not acceptable. (THIS INCLUDES ALL REFERENCES TO ANY DRUGS OR DRUG USAGE)

    4. Each student will do his or her own work only unless otherwise directed. Sharing work will result in a zero for both   Because I can not read your minds, the appearance of cheating IS cheating for the purpose of any testing situation. 

    5. Vandalism will be severely punished. This includes throwing trash in the sinks, writing on the

    tables, breaking equipment, sticking gum under tables, or in general doing anything that   destroys someone else’s property including the teacher’s or the school’s.

    1. Eating and drinking in the classroom is not permitted (this includes candy and gum).  There is    

    one exception to the rule.  You may have water in refillable plastic bottles.  (This is        Environmental class after all.

    1. If you are going to be absent, please email me that fact.  baker@lcps.org




                Work missed due to absences can be a source of frustration for the student.  Although it is not possible to totally avoid any inconvenience for the student who has missed a class, a clear understanding of what is expected upon return to class should help students and parents plan for the student’s return to class.


    1. Arrangements for make-up work due to absences, like all make up work, are the responsibility of the student. The teacher will give one and only one reminder about make up work. For longer absences SEE ME, TALK TO ME PRIVATELY – NOT WHILE I AM TEACHING CLASS!!!

    2. Obtaining make up work is your responsibility. You will be shown where to pick up missed work.   If the work is not completed on time, a zero will be given for a grade. 

    3.     If you come late to school or leave early for any reason: You must obtain any assignments/work done in class and be prepared for the next class.  Basically, if you are in the building at any time during the day, you are responsible for the work we do in that day’s class and turning in any work due, even if you miss the class.  Failure to turn in work will result in no credit being given for that assignment.


     Grading System


    1. Grade is done on a straight point system. To figure your percentage for each assignment divide the points you received by the point possible, then multiple by 100.
