AP Gov & Politics & US History
Scholar Contract: 2019-20 School Year
Mr. Garcia: Social Studies
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year. This course (US History, Gov. & Politics) is a requirement for graduation. You must pass the class with a 70% or higher to receive credit and meet the requirement for graduation. Below is a breakdown on how the class will be assessed.
-All assignments are given a due date when assigned. If you turn in a assignment late there is a 10% deduction for every day it is late, with a 40% penalty cap. If you turn in a assignment 4 days late or more the highest grade you can earn is 60%. I take all late work. Just keep in mind the penalty for turning in work late.
-You must be in class within 5 minutes from the end of the previous class period. If you come in after that, it is marked as a Unexcused Tardy. If you have a pass then it will be marked as an Excused Tardy.
-Plagiarism is not tolerated under any circumstance. If you are caught plagiarizing you will receive a zero for the assignment, the assignment cannot be made up, and it will be noted on the grade book.
-If you are absent, it is your responsibility to meet with me when you return to get any assignments or notes you may have missed.
-No food or drink is allowed in the Learning Space. This is a campus wide policy.
