I am Mr. Clark.
The very best way to contact Mr. Clark is by email at: William.Clark1@Marion.K12.FL.US
Emails are generally responded to within 12 to 24 hours on business/school days.
The school number is: 352-671-4820
How is your grade calculated? 10% for Homework, 40% Quizzes/Classwork, 50% Tests/Projects.
What is the Grading Scale? A = 90-100, B = 80-89, C = 70-79, D = 60-69, F = 0-59. (The EOC - End-of-Course Exam - accounts for 30% of your Final Grade.)
All assignments, for in-class and on-line students will be listed on "Microsoft Teams."
Check for daily assignments in "Microsoft Teams", training to be provided during class.
When turning in assignments, you must include 3 things:
A) Your full name,
B) What Period you are assigned in,
C) And the Title of the Assignment.
Failure to include items A), B), and C) with each assignment will cause a delay in grading and may subject the student to a grade point deduction.
HOMEWORK is a "MUST." Each week, one to three homework assignments will be collected and counted as a "pop quiz." All assignments are to be turned in on time. If not turned in on time a grade of "0", (Zero) will be submitted. If a student misses a Test, Project, Quiz, Homework Assignment - in short - if a student misses anything that generates a grade, a "0", (Zero) will be entered as a placeholder. It is the student's responsibility to turn work in on time. If you have an excused absence, (as predicated by Marion County Public School Policy and Procedures), the student will have "one day" for "each day" of excused absence, to make up missing work. Missing tests and quizzes must be made up before or after school. Arrangements must be made ASAP after returning to school.
