Welcome to Credit Recovery!  The best method to contact me is by email.

 

The main goals of this class are:

  1. to prepare students for skills needed in daily life,
  2. to prepare students for future courses,
  3. to prepare students for future careers, and
  4. to help students GRADUATE!

In order to meet these goals, students will have work every day.  To be successful, students should bring needed supplies including computers with chargers and notebooks every day.

 

Credit Recovery provides opportunities for individualized learning.  Students may be taking a Dual Enrollment course or recovering credits missed while moving from state to state or recovering a course that was not successful before.  Since all students work at their own pace, Credit Recovery is designed to help you complete your credits quickly, so that you will be able to graduate on time.  Each day will be independent practice on computers, so it will be very important to bring a charged computer every day.  Progress will be monitored by yourself, by me and by your parent/guardian.

Assignments may be completed at home.

It is your responsibility to make-up any assignments or tests in a timely manner.

Turning in Assignments

Assignments are turned in through the School’s PLP Program.  On a full school week, you should finish as many assignments as possible during class, and then test. (If you would like to recover your credits sooner, you can speed up your progress if you work outside of our class time.)

 

School Expectations

Students will follow all school rules as stated in the Student Handbook.  Consequences for breaking school rules will follow normal school policies included in the handbook.

Special Notes on Expectations:

 

  • Students should not change any program settings or download any information to the hard drive of the computers or iPads. The laptops and iPads are protected with firewalls to restrict inappropriate websites. Any student who is found to be off task or visiting any websites other than those instructed by the teacher may be denied access of technology use in the classroom.
  • Speaking while the teacher is speaking is not respectful and disrupts the learning process. You should refrain from talking while the teacher is giving instruction.
  • Leaving your seat during whole group instruction is also a distraction. Once whole group instruction begins, you must ask for permission to leave your seat.
  • Talking during a test is also a distraction and will not be tolerated. Tests are taken frequently in Credit Recovery so the Credit Recovery classroom is generally very quiet.
  • All food, drink, and water bottles should be out of sight, stored away. Clear water bottles with sealed caps are allowed when your computer is not out. Book bags, purses, and other personal items that are distracting to anyone in the room will be stored away for the rest of the year on the cart at the back of the classroom.  Purses may go under the desk but must remain closed during class. 
  • Grab and Go Breakfast – Food will be allowed at your assigned seat in the classroom until 7:29 am. Your desk should be cleaned, trash discarded, and computer should be ready to work at 7:30 am.
  • Cell Phones must be used per CMCSS rules. Cell Phones may not be connected to the wall to charge or to school computers. Cell phones need to be turned off and stored out of sight.

 

Academic Assistance/Tutorials

Students who need extra help may come to my help desk one at a time, send me a message through School’s PLP or email me.

 

 

 

Restroom Policy

Students are given 5 minutes between each class to get materials from the locker, use the restroom and get to class.  Please use these minutes wisely, as you will NOT be allowed to exit the class frequently after the tardy bell, unless a note is on file in the nurse’s office from your doctor.  If permission is given to leave the classroom, you MUST use your electronic pass.  Please be prompt and return as soon as possible, since passes are limited.

 

Entering the classroom

Enter the classroom quietly.  Students will begin work in Credit Recovery quickly.  You do not have to wait for the tardy bell to begin work.

  1. Get necessary materials, sharpen a pencil, if needed, and put your backpack in the proper area. No food, drink, or water bottles may be open during class.  Purses may be kept under the desk, but must remain closed for the entire class period.
  2. Go to your assigned seat and begin working quietly on your assignment.

 

Tardy Policy  Watch your time carefully.  Students who miss 10 minutes of class are considered to be skipping, not tardy, for that class.

Special Rule for 1st period ONLY:  If you are late, please report to the front office for a tardy pass, after 7:30 am.

All other classes:  If you are late, please hurry to class to avoid being too late to count it as a tardy. 

You are late to class if you are not inside the classroom when the bell rings.

For all tardies, please do the following:

  1. Knock on the door once, and wait quietly for someone to answer. Keep your face visible in the door’s window until you are allowed into class.  Remember that we have already started working in Credit Recovery.
  2. Place your tardy pass (1st pd only) in the IN BOX located on the teacher workstation as you walk in quietly.
  3. Go to your assigned seat and start your assignment.

 

During Tests

On test days, you are expected to have materials ready and be in your seat before the bell rings. As soon as the tardy bell rings, you may start your test.  We will take tests frequently in Credit Recovery.  Most days will be testing quiet the entire period since all students work independently.  Questions will still be answered quietly through School’s PLP messages for those students who are not testing.

Classroom Discussion

In order to have productive discussion where everyone learns, it is critical that you raise your hand and wait for me to call on you, rather than yelling out responses. Whenever we speak in class, we will practice using accountable talk.  

 

Independent Student Work

When students are working independently at their computer, there should be no talking, and no visiting any other site for off-task reasons (such as games, you tube, music sites, etc.)  Students are allowed to check grades during the first 5 minutes or the last 5 minutes of class.  Students should not spend the entire class period checking on grades.  There is no expectation of privacy while using your computer.  Student computer screens must face the teacher area.  Students are not allowed to move the screen out of sight of the teacher. Software programs are being used to monitor the sites where students go.  The software programs can record every keystroke students make and can be printed out to attach to the off-task referral.  Please use your computer responsibly, for academic purposes only.

 

When you Finish Early

If you finish all of your assigned work early, you may read independently or work on an assignment from another class. You may NOT be a disruption to others.

 

End of Class

In the last five minutes of class, the teacher will give a signal for students to close computers, return class materials, tidy up the classroom, record assignments and gather personal belongings. The bell does not dismiss the class. The teacher will dismiss the class only when all students are in their seats and the classroom condition is returned to order. Waiting by the door will not be allowed!

 

When There is An Emergency Drill

  1. Fire – exit the room quietly and quickly, using the designated route. Meet at the designated area and form a straight line so that your attendance can be noted.
  2. Severe Weather – quickly and quietly move to the designated area and get in the protective position, hands covering your head, until we are given the “all clear” signal.
  3. Intruder – quickly and quietly move to the area of the classroom farthest from the door. Do not talk or move around until we receive the “all clear” signal.
