Late Work Policy

Completing assignments is essential to success in my class. So is turning them in on time! In order to


guarantee that learning still takes place, assignments turned in after their due-date will still be corrected and
returned to the student. However, late assignments will receive no higher than a 60%.
Excused absences will result in the extension of due dates by one day for every school day missed.
It is the responsibility of the student to find out if assignments and due-dates have been missed by
checking PowerSchool or http://mr-johnson.us

Cheating and Plagiarism


Just dont do it! There are a multitude of reasons why, including the fact that it is a violation of school policy, it can be
considered a violation of the law in some cases, and in many colleges and universities it is grounds for expulsion.
Academic dishonesty will not only result in disciplinary action, but also undermines the learning process.
