Teachers shall evaluate student progress, report grades that represent the student’s academic achievement, and communicate official academic progress to students and parents in a timely manner through the electronic grading portal. See Board Policy IHA.

DISTRICT EXPECTATIONS FOR SUCCESS

STUDENT PROGRESS

Semester progress reports shall be issued four and a half, nine and thirteen and a half weeks into each semester. The progress of students shall be evaluated frequently and plans shall be generated to remediate deficiencies as they are discovered. Plans shall include appropriate interventions designed to meet the needs of the students. See Board Policy IH.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

Students will not engage in an act of academic dishonesty including, but not limited to, cheating, providing false information, falsifying school records, forging signatures, or using an unauthorized computer user ID or password. See the Code of Student Conduct - Student Rights and Responsibilities and Character Development Handbook.

HOMEWORK

Homework assignments should be meaningful and should be an application or adaptation of a classroom experience. Homework is at all times an extension of the teaching/learning experience. It should be considered the possession of the student and should be collected, evaluated and returned to the students. See Board Policy IHB.

MAKE-UP WORK

DUE TO ABSENCES

When a student is absent because of a legal reason as defined by Georgia law or when the absence is apparently beyond the control of the student, the student shall be given an opportunity to earn grade(s) for those days absent. Make-up work must be completed within the designated time allotted. See Board Policy IHEA.

SCHOOL EXPECTATIONS FOR SUCCESS

CLASSROOM EXPECTATIONS

a. Be prepared by bringing textbook, notebook w/paper, writing implements, and the official Lakeside High School agenda book daily. Have homework completed before entering the classroom. Be in your seat and ready to work when the bell rings.

b. Be courteous by listening quietly. No loud, unnecessary talking or noise- making. Raise your hand for permission to speak or leave your seat.

c. Be a pro-active class citizen by following all directions the first time given. Maintain a clean, safe classroom environment: food, candy, drinks, and grooming are not permitted. However, bottled water and hard candy are allowed provided that these privileges are not abused. Attend to personal needs between classes. Each student is allowed only 4 emergency hall passes during the semester.

d. Be cooperative and respectful by respecting all teachers and students. We must work together to succeed: it is not right for an individual to take away from the educational time of others. I want and expect you to do well in my class. Good effort and positive attitude will be rewarded.

MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES

The student is expected to bring to class everyday his or her textbook, a class binder, all issued hand-outs, all notes taken, additional paper, a pen, a pencil, and the current agenda book. If a student should damage the textbook, the workbook in class, or the agenda book, it is the student’s responsibility to pay replacement costs.

EXTRA HELP
