BROBERG PASSES

Students will receive two late passes per quarter.  The late pass will allow a student to turn in a completed missing assignment up to one week late for full credit. Broberg Passes will only be accepted during the quarter in which they are distributed.  If a student does not use a late pass, they will be accepted the week before a quarter ends for five extra credit points each if all work has been turned in.

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES

Valley View students are expected to demonstrate positive and respectful behavior in class and on our campus at all times.  We expect all students to adhere to the guidelines as outlined in the Valley View Agenda Book.

Classroom Expectations  (See Students' Six B's):

  1. Be On Time 
  2. Be Respectful
  3. Be Appropriate in Voice Level and Behavior
  4. Be Engaged in the Assigned Activity and Follow Directions the First Time
  5. Be Prepared Each Day With Supplies and a Positive Attitude
  6. Be Aware of all Valley View's guidelines

If you Choose to Break a Rule...

First Time:  Verbal warning

Second Time:  Receive an "off-task" toward citizenship or effort grade

Third Time:  Detention/ Teacher Consequence (skipped detentions will double)

Fourth Time:  Phone Call/ Email Home

Fifth Time:  Referral written, student sent to office

 

Student Responsibilities

1.  Students are expected to follow all classroom rules and procedures

2.  Student work is expected to be neat, complete, and on-time (a significant point deduction will result if these three requirements are not met)

3.  Student work is expected to have the appropriate English Heading:

Name (First & Last)

Mrs. Broberg

Subject/ Period

Date

4.  To ensure student success, students are expected to bring all necessary materials to class everyday!

 

School Tardy Policy

Being tardy is unacceptable.  Those who are responsible and respectful earn good citizenship.  Being tardy twice to class will negatively affect the citizenship grade for the quarter.  After the fifth time tardy, students will receive a "U" (unsatisfactory) grade in Citizenship.  See Valley View Middle School's Tardy Policy in the Agenda book.

1 tardy = warning

2 tardies = detention

3 tardies = detention & phone call/email home

4-5 tardies = referral & N in Citizenship

6 tardies = referral & a U in Citizenship

 

Absent Policy

The number of days a student misses class equals the number of days they may complete the assignments they missed.  However, long term assignments are due on their due date with no exceptions, and following an absence, the student must turn the assignment in before school starts in order not to be counted late.  Students may always make up work that they have missed as a result of an absence for full credit.  However, it is a student's responsibility to obtain the information they have missed as a result of an absence, to check the absent work folders, to complete any assignments they have missed (tests, classwork and homework), and to copy down their agenda for any missed days.  Students must make an appointment to make-up any missed tests after school or during homeroom any day of the week (up to one week after you return).

 

Steps to Getting Work After an Absence

1.  Obtain information from missed days (class website, study buddies, Mrs. Broberg).

2.  Check Absent Work File Box for the date(s) absent.

3.  Complete all missing assignments within the number of days absent (agenda, classwork, homework, tests - make an appointment with Mrs. Broberg to take the test during homeroom or after school).

4.  Write "ABSENT" at the top of all completed assignments and turn in the box for your period.

 

Late Work Policy

I will accept late work for 60% credit only if it is done neatly and completely within the quarter it was assigned (except for long term assignments and assessments - they must be completed on time or, if absent, turned in before school on the day a student returns from the absence).

 

Honesty

Honesty is one of the most important qualities a student can demonstrate. Plagiarizing lying, and cheating are unacceptable.  Plagiarizing is passing someone else's work off as your own.  This includes copying, even if the other person gives you permission.

Plagiarizing will not be tolerated or accepted.  Lenders and copiers will receive no credit for dishonest work.

USING TECHNOLOGY & PORTABLE DEVICES FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES

Technology will be permitted in the classroom and used by teacher direction only, for things such as reading for AR, researching, or studying stems.  Devices will only be used for relevant, classroom activities.  Students using devices inappropriately will lose the opportunity to use their electronic devices in class.  Please see the following information provided to students the first week of school:

  • Parents are expected to agree to the Portable Device Guidelines on AERIES
  • Phones/E-readers/Chromebooks may be used to connect to the internet for relevant classroom activities, like STEMS, research, or finding an AR book.
