Procedures are a part of life. We follow procedures for getting ready for school, looking up information on the internet or visiting the doctor's office. The reason that we have procedures in life is so that people can function in society knowing the acceptable and efficient way other people do things.

There are procedures in this classroom. These procedures establish our classroom culture.

When the bell rings:

When you are tardy:


Leaving the classroom:

End of class dismissal:


Dress Code:

Finding out your grades:

A 90%-100% (of possible points)
B 80%-89%
C 70%-79%
D 60%-69%
F Below 60%


Computer classes offer all students the unique opportunity to work beyond the assignment. Students are encouraged to utilize the many features of computer software and their own creative abilities to enhance the curriculum to meet their needs.

In this course students will be pre-assessed on the knowledge and skills that will be learned in the course. The purpose of these pre-assessments is to find out what students already know and are able to do to avoid repetition and to give the student access to advanced and/or accelerated content.

Formal or informal pre-assessments may include program assignments, startups, quizzes, input and self-evaluation, specific teacher observational data, or other forms of pre-assessment. Below is a list of differentiation strategies that may be used.

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As we begin a new school year, it is my hope that ALL students will successfully complete this course. Students will be challenged to think and grow. They may need your support and help at home. Read over the class expectations for this class with your son/daughter. Also read through the school rules and expectations on attendance, dress code, and plagarism. You don't have to be an expert in programming, or even know how to solve the problems – you are not taking the class. Please check in with them to make sure they are doing well in class and staying on top of their assignments.

If you ever have questions, feel free to email ( or call and I will try to get back to you within two school days. Below your signature give me times and number or email that are best to reach you.

Take some time, go over the expectations and set some goals with your child. Then print and sign this letter and have the student return this page next time we have class. I hope this will be a great year for all of us. They will not recieve any points for assignments until this letter is turned in.

Go Olys!

Phil Rodin
