Mr. Castilleja's Page

Welcome!  
 
Outlined below are some basics to help you get started:
 
Supplies:
Laptop, Three-ring binder, Loose-leaf paper (1 ream), Blue/black pens, pencils... NO RED INK
(Project supplies to be assigned as needed.)
 
Late Work: 
Sometimes your Project Managers will conspire against you (LOL) and assign projects, tests, and homework with the same due date.  If this occurs, please talk to me to negotiate an alternative due date...this applies for homework and projects only.  Tests and quizzes are as assigned.
 
Grading: 
My grade book is set-up on a total points basis, not categories.  Individual assignments will bear different point values.  Remember, each quarter is worth 40% of your grade and the final exam will constitute the remaining 20% (40% + 40% + 20% = 100%).  I generally grade over the week-end and return work on Monday.  Please keep all returned assignments because, occasionally, I record your grades incorrectly, or the grade book does not save the grade I entered.  Your grades will be updated by the end of Monday.
 
Cell Phones: 
Cell Phones are not allowed in class, thank you.
 
Homework Policy:
Time will be given in each class to complete homework... whatever is not finished becomes homework due when you walk into the next class period.
For every day you are absent, you have two days to complete homework.
 
Classroom Rules:
1) No lying or cheating 
2) R-E-S-P-E-C-T
