    2021-2022 School Year garrest@boe.richmond.k12.ga.us 

    Course Overview: 

    • This English Language arts course will include writing practices, vocabulary development, reading comprehension and communication skills. All activities, lessons and practices will be aimed toward preparing the student for post-graduation life (workforce, college, etc.). 

    Student Expectations: 

    • Respect your classmates 
    • Remaining silent during instruction and peer presentations 
    • Being kind and encouraging 
    • Participating during group work activities 
    • Respect your teacher(s) 
    • Listen when they talk

    • Begin working on the bell ringer as soon as you get to class 
    • Respect yourself 
    • Do your best on each activity 
    • Complete work on time 
    • Aim for success in everything you do 

    Teacher Expectations: 

    • As your teacher, I will respect you and provide you with a safe space to learn. I will provide you with instruction and activities that will prepare you for your life after graduation. To the best of my ability, I will never assign anything or teach anything that will waste your time or mine.

    Grading Policy: 

    • ASSESSMENTS -- 45% 
    • CLASSWORK -- 55%

    Materials Needed: 

    • You are expected to bring each of these items to class everyday: 
    • Pencil/Black or Blue Pen 
    • Composition Notebook 
    • Fully Charged Computer (once the school has given you one) 
    • Face Mask (as needed) 


    • You are expected to follow the student code of conduct in your handbook. 

    Below are the steps I will follow with each infraction: 

    • 1. Verbal Warning 
    • 2. Second Warning or ISD 
    • 3. Parent Phone Call 
    • 4. Office Referral (with recommendation of ISS or OSS with parent conference) 
    • Fighting, vandalism, open defiance, profanity or disruption will result in an immediate office referral with suspension recommended. 

    Late Work: 

    • If an assignment is turned in after its due date, the assignments grade will be deducted 10% each day it is late. 
    • Example: if an assignment is turned 1 day late and it was given a 90, I will take off 10% of 90 (minus 9 points) and your final grade will be an 81. If you turn it in 2 months late, I will only take off 40% (minus 36) and your final grade will be a 54. 

    Re-Do Assignments: 

    • If you are unsatisfied with a grade you received on an assignment, you can schedule a conference with me and you will have 1 week after said conference to complete the assignment. I will then average the two grades and that will be your final grade. Once a grading period has passed (nine weeks), you will no longer be able to re-do an assignment as I will not be able to change your grade. 
    • Example: if, on your first try, you make a 60 on an assignment and, on your second try, you make an 80, your final grade will be a 70. 

    Make-up Work: 

    • It is your responsibility to obtain and complete make-up if you are absent. You will have the same amount of days you were absent to complete make-up work. 
    • Example: if you are absent for 2 days, you will have 2 days to complete any make-up work.
