I will be using Skyward for reporting all grades and recording attendance. I will update Skyward at least every 2 weeks; it is your responsibility to check Skyward frequently.
All homework worksheets will be posted on my school website. If you miss a day of school it is your responsibility to check the website and download any assignments you might have missed. Homework will be collected either the day after assigned or on the day of the test, be prepared for either situation.
When you come to class on the day of the test, you will be asked to place each homework assignment in a different stack and I will grade and enter your assignments into Skyward while you take your test. Late work will not be accepted. It is your responsibility to remember to bring your homework to class on test days. The only exception would be an excused absence or an emergency call from your parents.
The day after you take a test we will correct and go over your test in class. You will be asked to clear everything off your desk. I will then hand out a colored pen for you to use to correct the test you are given. Tests will be handed out randomly, so you will not get your own to correct. Most tests in my class will ask you to show your work, make sure you do this as you will get no credit for a problem that does not have work shown. I will enter your test into Skyward. When I finish grading your work and entering it into Skyward, I will return it to the homework return box in the classroom near the door. It is your responsibility to check the homework return box weekly for your returned assignments.
I will recycle all papers left in the out box longer than one week after the last completed unit. You should collect your returned homework and hold on to it. Make sure to check that it is posted on Skyward correctly.
Sometimes I make mistakes or miss an assignment. If I do and you catch it within two weeks of it being posted, you need to do 2 things. First, email me from the Skyward program by clicking on my name and let me know in this email what mistake was made. This way I, as well as you, have a record of the mistake. Second, re-turn in the assignment to the in box on the front table so I can re-grade the assignment. If I miss an assignment and you do not have the assignment to hand back in to me you can redo the assignment for 1/2 credit but only up to two weeks after the assignment is posted.
You were given a password and a login for Skyward. Write them down and remember them. You can check your grade at any time using the computer in the classroom or from any Internet ready computer. All you need to do to log on is go to the following web site:
Another way to get to the Skyward Login Page is to go to the district web site:
Once you are on the District main page, click on “Parents”. Scroll down the page until you get to Skyward Family Access and click on it. You will now be at the Skyward Login Page. After you hit the return (enter) button your grade book will come up and you can check if you are missing any assignments. I will give you two weeks from the date that I post the grades to review your grade for mistakes and hand in the assignment in question.
If you have any questions let me know.
