• Mr.Weller’s Class Rules and Expectations

    Welcome Back! This is going to be a great school year. I want to ensure that all my students are successful in my math class.  For this reason I will explain my classroom rules.         

    1. Students have the right to have their time in class be valuable and productive.  For this to happen, students need to come to class prepared and ready to learn.  This means that students have their textbook,scientific calculator, paper, writing utensil, completed assignments that are due and any other material that they have been asked to bring.  This allows class to begin promptly.

    2. Students have the right to learn in a safe environment.  Therefore, students must be courteous and respectful to other students and staff.  Insults, rumors,gossip, or put-downs of any kind are not tolerated.  

    3.  Students have the right to learn without disruptions or distractions.  Such behavior is unfair to other students and to the instructor. Students will remain in their seats at all times unless otherwise directed by the instructor. With the exception of water, students will not be allowed to eat, drink or chew gum in class.  This minimizes distractions and ensures that the classroom remains clean.

    4.  It is very important that students are in class and are able to receive instruction and assistance. It is difficult for students who leave class frequently to be successful. However, occasionally there are times when it is necessary for students to leave the classroom.  For this reason, students are given two bathroom passes each quarter.  Each unused pass is worth a bonus 5 quiz points to the student at the end of the quarter. 

    5. Students are expected to comply with all reasonable requests from the instructor in a timely manner and without disrupting the learning environment.  In this classroom, we adhere to a policy of mutual respect and taking responsibility for our own actions.

    Classroom Discipline

    I believe in a progressive classroom discipline policy that includes student, parents andadministrators in proactively solving discipline problems. Typically, classroom discipline will follow these steps. However, depending on the severity or frequency of the action, some steps may be skipped.

    1.      Verbal Warning (and Lost Participation Points, if applicable)

    2.      Detentionand Parent Contact (and Lost Participation Points, if applicable)

    [Detention is scheduled for after school and may require parents to make arrangements for transportation.]

    3.      AdministrativeIntervention

    Teacher Responsibilities

    I will do my best to create a positive, productive and non-threatening learning environment.

    I will be ready and prepared to teach every day using a variety of methods.

    I will do my best to meet theindividual needs of my students.  

    I will be consistent and fair in following a progressive discipline procedure.
