This course is a hybrid course. (assignments will be completed online and in the classroom.)
Upon successful completion of this course (with a grade C or higher), students will earn both middle school and high school credit. This grade WILL count toward the student’s high school grade point average.
Our classroom is paper-free. Which means you will not need a pencil and paper for this class. All assignments will be posted and turned in using Google Classroom and Moodle. We will setup accounts the second week of school, but here is the website https://classroom.google.com/u/0/h and course code b2x8t09, for those who would like to get a head start. Course syllabus, daily bell-ringers, assignments, and exit tickets will be posted in Google Classroom.
Due to the nature of this course attendance is important for success. It is your responsibility to check daily and make up any missing work if absent. If you do not have access to a home computer, please see Mrs. Hallford to schedule makeup lab time before or after school.
