    Laboratory Procedures

    A/V Technology will take place in a Studio. Cooperative groups, media equipment, and technology will be used in this class.  All equipment must be used appropriately to ensure longevity of all materials.  Grades will be based upon participation, professionalism, knowledge and use of equipment, and the completion of media projects.  The studio assignment of the day must be neat and clean before leaving the classroom, so budget your time wisely.    



    If you are absent, it is the students responsibility to check the website for missed assignments.  If a worksheet was used during the students absence, the student may download and print a copy if there is a PDF available or see the worksheet file next to the in box to retrieve a copy.  Only one copy will be provided for each assignment, please keep any handouts safe and neatly stored. All completed assignments will be turned into the "IN" box.  For every absence the student acquires, two days will be given to complete the assignment.  If the student was present when an assignment was given, but absent on the date the assignment was due, the assignment is due when the student reports to class.  If the student is absent for a test, lab, or a quiz, arrangements must be made to make the test or quiz up before or after school.  Due to the complexity of some labs, an alternative assignment may be given to make up for the lab.


    Late Work

    Work is due on the due date.  No late work will be excepted.


    Tardy Policy

    You will be marked tardy if you are not in the classroom when the bell rings.


    Cheating and Plagiarism Policy

    Students need to complete their own work and will not copy work and identify it as their own.  If a student copies from another student on any assignment, test, lab, quiz, classwork, or homework both parties (copy-er and the copy-ee) will receive zeros for that assignment, test, lab, quiz, classwork, or homework. Plagiarism is not accepted and will be penalized according to the Student Handbook of Conduct.
