Welcome back! The following information is to ensure that all students have the same opportunity in reaching
their goals and succeeding in this class.

Course Description:
The College Prep 11 theme for this year is identity, which entails figuring out who you are in this world and
how to present yourself to the world. We will focus on preparing for the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT), writing
personal narratives, and creating a personal website/portfolio. This class aims to prepare you for college,
which means sharpening the necessary skills for life after high school. This class is meant to both support
your areas of growth and challenge your current strengths. Its going to be a great year!

Homework Policy:
Students will have an agenda where they will record their daily assignments and homework. Assignments will
be collected/graded on a weekly basis and entered into PowerSchool. Students may make up assignments
due to EXCUSED absences only.

Students are expected to be in class everyday. Students must be in their seats and ready to work by the time
the tardy bell rings. Excessive tardiness will result in consequences.

If you are absent, it is your responsibility to find out what you have missed. Check the Missed Work tray to
find out what was assigned during your absence. If you have an excused absent the day an assignment is
due, you are responsible for turning it in on your first day back to class or emailing it to me. If you are absent
on the day of a test you will have 2 days to make up the test outside of class time. Truancy (cutting or
ditching class) may NOT be made up.

The following is the breakdown of grades for College Prep 11:
Learning Target 1: Academic Literacy 30%
Learning Target 2: College Readiness Goals 40%
Learning Target 3: Career Readiness Goals 15%
Learning Target 4: Organization/Work Habits 15%

Students will receive a final mark at the end of each semester. There will be weekly progress reports given to
the student every week. Students, parents, and guardians may check grades on PowerSchool or before/after
class throughout the semester. Grades will be based on performance on formative and summative
assessments. The following scale will be used to determine grades (Please e-mail with questions or if you
need more clarification):

some of the more complex ideas and processes.
