Class Rules and Procedures 2017-2018

A copy of this has been provided to each student in my classes. It is to be kept in the class notebook. The notebook will be their textbook, and the tests will come straight from the study guides  they fill out each day.
Information in the notebook also counts as a quiz grade each quarter. There are normally four quiz grades a quarter, and three test/project grades per quarter.
