Welcome back students!
I recommend bookmarking this website as it will serve as a valuable resource all year. You will find homework, projects, review materials, class powerpoints, videos and other resources here.
First week forms and info (paper copies passed out in class):
Biology syllabus: BIOLOGY SYLLABUS 2016-2017
Participation rubric: Participation Rubric
Agriscience syllabus: Agriscience syllabus
Agriscience Animal Safety: Animal safety sheet
Biology homework will be posted on this website.
At the top of this page click/hover over ‘Biology’ and a drop down menu will appear. Here you will find separate pages for Vocabulary and Textbook assignments. Assignments are posted well in advance with due dates. These are individual assignments. Copied and plagiarized work will receive a zero. Considering I post assignments far in advance, extensions will not be given and late work policy is strictly enforced. [Exception for serious illness/family emergencies etc…]
Another link will lead to powerpoints & videos viewed in class. If you’re absent – check the website to avoid falling behind.
Plus portals: https://www.plusportals.com/SBRS
I update grades every week. Students and their parents/guardians should check regularly. For assistance accessing plus portals contact the school technology lab.
Missed/Late Work Policy:
- It is YOUR responsibility to find out what you missed when absent. Check the class website.
- Give notice for planned absences/field trips/early dismissal for athletics
- Late work = 10 points off per day. Work will not be accepted after 3 days for college prep/honors students. Standard students have one week. Homework is 35% of course grade!
- Skipping = absolutely NO make-up work will be allowed.
