Grading Procedures for
Mr. DeBlassStudents will be graded in the following way:30% PARTICIPATION
Behavior – A large part of your participation grade will be behavior in class. RESPECT between other classmates and the teacher is important in my classroom, and any unacceptable behavior after verbal warnings will result in points lost. Your behavior grade starts each quarter at a 100. Points are lost for disrespectful behavior during the class after a final warning. SKyward will have details as to why a student has lost any points in the form of comments left on the students grade.
Attendance – As per school policy, any student with 7 or more unexcused absences in a quarter will receive a failing grade for participation.
In-class activities – Some in class activities will be graded based off of your willingness to do them. An example would be your Please Do Now…do them...get the credit…easy way to get a good participation grade.
