HAC Grading Program:   Regularly monitor your progress online. http://hac.fcps.org

                                                Login information will be provided during the first week of school

 

Make-up Work: It is crucial that missed work be completed promptly to prevent confusion as new material continues to be introduced.  The FCPS absence policy outlined in the calendar handbook will be followed.  Missed tests must be taken within 4 days of absence, or the test score will be a zero.    Students are responsible for picking up missed worksheets from the bins provided in back of the classroom.  PowerPoint lessons, note sheets, and Daily homework assignments are posted on my webpage on the MHS website:

http://education.fcps.org/mhs/SharonSzparaL

Late Work: Homework assignments will not be accepted late unless the student has been absent.  Grades in HAC shown as a “Z” can be made up for credit before mid-term or the end of the term. An “E” in HAC means the student is excused from the assignment.

 

 

Academic Dishonesty: Students may not give or receive unauthorized aid on any assignment. Students will be held to the expectations and actions included in the MHS Honor Code found in the Student Handbook.   Students may not share calculators.  If a student needs to borrow a calculator from the school, he or she should see me to fill out a calculator loan agreement at the beginning of the semester.
