    Extra Help: 

    Available every day after school (except Wednesdays) by appointment.
    Please DO NOT wait until the day before an assessment to get help for a section/unit.  Once you are confused on a topic, see me immediately so we can clarify any misconceptions before moving onto new material.  Believe me, it will save you a great deal of stress. 

    Grading and Expectations:  

    CP BIOLOGY and HONORS Biology

    Grading is based on a point value system. 


    Categories are: 

    Reading comprehension, labs/quizzes, and other assessments. 

    The higher the point value of an assignment, the more it will impact your grade. Assignments that are more involved will have higher point values than the ones that are preparatory or basic.

    Reading comprehension assignments are worth less points than labs/quizzes and other assessments.


    If you are absent, you will be responsible for any work due and covered in class.  Please check wires and week at a glance.

    All due dates must be respected and assignments due must be completed at the beginning of the period on the day it is due.
    Long term illness/other situations will be handled individually.
    If you know you will be absent on a day, please see me ahead of time to give you the work missed.  You do not want to fall behind.  I keep wires updated and expect you to keep up with the classwork if you are not in class.
