• Attendance 

    Preparation for a career after high school requires that you practice good habits in attendance and punctuality.  

    • Students will be allowed 2 days to complete any missing assignments. Any assignments submitted after the 2 days will result in a 30% grade deduction. 
    • If a student misses more than 7 (seven) fifty-minute periods of unexcused absences within the semester, the student will be subject to a “mastery exam”. If the student does not pass the “mastery exam”, the student will “fail” that semester. (Marion County School Board Policy) 
    • IT IS THE STUDENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO ASK THE TEACHER FOR AND GET ANY MISSED WORK.  

    Tardy Policy: Class begins on time. If late for class, you will be marked tardy (lose points) if you arrive within the first 10 minutes. Per school policy, after that time, you must go to attendance to obtain a “tardy pass”. After the third tardy, the student’s guardian will be notified. If tardiness continues, the student will receive a referral and subsequent tardiness will require a parent conference and be reported to the Discipline Office.  

     Dress Code 

    You have decided to attend MTI with the expectation that we are going to help you prepare for the business world. When going on field trips or hosting a guest speaker, students should wear business attire (dress pants, dress skirt, dress shoes and MTI polo or T-shirt). Students are required to adhere to the Marion County School Department’s Dress Code.  

     Independent Learning & Studying 

    Students will be completing on-line tutorials to assist them for industry certification. Students will also be completing individual writing assignments in this course.  Writing and editing are essential skills in today’s business and legal field. The organization of student writing, sentence structure, and use of grammar, spelling, and punctuation will be evaluated along with content. Writing assignments will be included in: in-class assignments, group projects, Internet research, guest speakers and field trips, self-assessment and reflection.  

     Cell Phones – THE USE OF CELL PHONES ARE PROHIBITED DURING CLASS TIME!  

    Cell phones and similar wireless devices may be in possession of students on campus but cannot be visible or activated during regular classroom hours. Students are permitted to use wireless devices during class change. The possession of such devices must not pose a threat to academic integrity, disrupt the learning environment, or violate the privacy of others.  

    • First Offense - Warning  
    • Second Offense – Phone will be confiscated and returned at the end of the class period, parent will be called 
    • Third Offense – Office Discipline Referral 

     Food and Drink in the Classroom 

    Food items and drinks are NOT allowed at the computer stations or in the classroom. Food must be eaten in the cafeteria or in the courtyard.
