As our virtual and in-person learning happens this year, the best plan is to make an appointment with me so you can have that support as soon as possible.Arrangements for tutoring/extra art room time are best made by email or during the first 5 minutes of in-person class.IMPORTANT:We will enjoy the gift of using art to play, grow, and learn together by focusing on your personal goals with an emphasis on mindfulness and being a culturally responsive classroom where all people are honored and challenged.If things aren't going well, please reach out to me. I am here for you. I can be flexible when I know you need it.Please contact me if something comes up and we need to make a plan. Clicking on "ask your teacher a question" or sending me an email is the quickest way to get that set.
ERECKSON POLICY: If your student makes any grade below a 70 on a test or assignment they are eligible to come in for tutoring followed by an opportunity to raise their grade up to a 70! Please do not hesitate to encourage your students to make use of this opportunity! In the past we have often tracked them down and forced this "chance" upon them but new regulations are now in place which put the responsibility squarely in the hands of the students. Please help them to see the importance of being responsible!
Redo Policy: "Students that earn a grade below a 70% on an assignment or assessment are eligible to re-do the assignment or assessment for a maximum grade of 70%. Intervention, such as tutoring, will be required prior to re-doing the assignment or assessment."
Late Work Policy: "Late work will be accepted no more than 3 days after the due date. Assignments turned in 4 days or more after the due date may earn a grade of 0%. For On-Level courses, students can earn no more than a 70% for late work."
Make-Up policy: "For every day a student is absent, they will be provided on class period to complete their work for full credit."
