Course Description
Human Anatomy is a course designed to define anatomy & physiology and discuss the functional processes & systems
common to all humans.

Grading Scale
A (4.0) = 90-100%
D (1.0) = 60-69%

B (3.0) = 80-89%
F (0.0) = Below 60%

Classroom Policies
Our class is a safe play for learning. I expect everyone to follow the following policies to insure a great classroom
experience for everyone.
1. Respect the people (yourself, other classmates & teachers), equipment & furnishings of the room.
2. Comes to class prepared & ready to learn by bringing ALL materials requested.
3. Follow the directions the first time they are given. If you are unsure of the directions, please ask.
ConsequencesIf there are violations of the classroom policies there will be a:
Verbal reminder
First Offence
Written reminder with a call home to parents
Second offence
Discipline write up and refer to administration
Third offence
I do not anticipate behavior problems in the classroom. You are young adults and I am confident that you will
conduct yourself accordingly. With ongoing good behavior we will regularly have perks such as fun group projects,
homework passes, and group assignments that will not be possible if there are discipline/behavior problems in the
classroom.

Tardies
SWEEPS will take place! If you are caught in a SWEEP, report to the cafeteria for the remainder of the period & your
attendance will be recorded as an UNEXCUSED ABSENCE.

Absences
EXCUSED
1. Absences must be excused on the day (within 24 hrs) of the absence by a parent/guardian.
2. Make-up work is completely the responsibility of the student!
3. Check the Human Anatomy Make-up Work Calendar and Assignments Bin for missed assignments & due dates. Do
NOT ask me about make-up work unless you have checked the calendar & do NOT interrupt classtime!
4. For every day you are out, you have one day to make up an assignment.
5. Test or quiz make-ups must be arranged on your own time within 3 days of returning.
UNEXCUSED
All work should be completed so you will not fall behind, but NO CREDIT will be given.

Assignments & Due Dates


1. All due dates for assignments will be posted in class & on Schoolwires & should be recorded in your CHS
planner/calendar.
2. Assignments are due at the beginning of the class period unless otherwise stated by the teacher.
3. Late work will NOT earn points unless there has been an excuse absence (see above).
.

Restroom/Drink Policy
1. Students may use the bathroom when they need but it is recommended that they do so between classes instead of
during class.
2. You must sign out on the Hall Pass Check Out-In Sheet & take the Blue Hall Pass.

Personal Electronics
ALL electrical items (cell phones, iPods, headsets, games) must be in SILENT mode during class time & may only be
taken out & used for academic purposes during class time. Use of cell phones for any other reason will result in it
being confiscated. Parents will be notified.
