Schoology account and requesting a specific Parent-Access code from the instructor.
Notebook/folder: Each student will be required to have a notebook for class and a folder that they can leave in
their GenNET classroom
Homework: Students will be required to do both written and signed homework. Signed homework will be
recorded and posted on Schoology. Written homework will be submitted online or faxed to Linden High School at
the beginning or end of class time.
Attendance: The attendance policy for the GenNET classroom is strictly enforced; poor attendance will result in the
removal of the student from the GenNET classroom setting. Students are expected to arrive promptly and prepared.
Should a student miss a day of class s/he is expected to obtain the missed work from either myself or a fellow classmate.
Participation: Students will be required to participate in a variety of in-class activities, homework, and projects
in order to effectively learn ASL- lack of attendance may affect the students grade.
Tests/Quizzes: If a test or a quiz is missed the student must make up the assessment within a week. Tests and
quizzes can be made up by coming into the GenNET room after school or by taking it online proctored by a
parent.
Behavior: Being in a distant learning classroom is a privilege and; therefore, the students are expected to act with
maturity, respect, and responsibility at all times
Phones: The use of phones will not be permitted in class unless specified by the teacher. The first offense during
a class period will be a warning; the second offense during a class period will result in a detention.
