Students should line-up before class in the hallway. They should then be quieted and greeted by the teacher. The ‘do now’, aim, and homework should be displayed on the board prior to the students’ arrival.
Students should sit up in class. Their head should always be raised, never on table (except when reading), no tipping, no slouching, and they should face forward with their legs under table.
Homework should be out right away at beginning of class and checked by the teacher during the ‘do now’.
Students should remain in seats during teacher instruction unless given specific permission.
Backpacks and bags should be placed underneath or on the back of chairs. Bags must not be in aisles, on tables, or on chairs.
Students should raise hands unless specifically stated by teacher that calling out is acceptable.
When students leave the classroom they need permission and a pass. Classrooms must have hall passes, bathroom passes, and office passes. If students are going to another location for a certain amount of time they should write a pass with the time on it and the teacher should sign it.
Students should not go to the bathroom or get water during class discussion or teaching. If they must go, it should be during independent work time.
Students should put books on table when reading. Students should have their independent reading book at all times. They can read if they finish an assignment early.
If students are not prepared for class they should receive a minus for each missing item. If it is repetitive they may receive a demerit.
Students will not do other class work in your class – it should be confiscated and the other teacher should be informed.
Teachers must have a clearly designated location for students to turn in revised assignments.
Teachers must have clearly designated location for extra copies of work for students who are absent or need to redo assignments.
