HONORS ENGLISH 9A, B
Prerequisite: Honors entrance is based on GPA, course grades, teacher recommendation, student ability and test data.
This yearlong English course is for students who were in an enriched English program. The course will cover all English 9 content and beyond at an in-depth and accelerated pace.
Absence and Make-up Policy:
Students who are absent are responsible for make-up work. These students will have up to one week to complete assignments. Students who miss class due to school-related activities are required to inform the teacher ahead of time and complete make-up work prior to absence. If an assignment is due the day you will be gone due to a school-related activity, it is still due for you the same day – not the next or it will be considered late. You must turn it in before you leave, and it’s your responsibility to do so. I will try and give a reminder to you if you come to see me when you are getting your homework/classwork for the day (it will be listed on the weekly board). Remember, you need to pick up your work before you leave for a school related event. Between classes or at the beginning of the hour are ideal times to do this – not interrupting my classes would be nice.
For any exams missed, the student must talk to the teacher to set up a time to complete the exam that was missed. It cannot be done in class times. They must be done before school or after school. In some instances quizzes and tests can be made up during lunch with prior approval from the teacher (this is not a normal circumstance) since it requires extra preparation – the test/quiz will be made up in a different room.
