Good to Know! 1

Here is some information that might help answer some questions!

Classroom Rules:1
We have 3 rules that remain the same throughout the building:
1.  Be respectful: Respect yourself, the staff, your classmates, your property, and the property of others including Krum ISD.
2. Be responsible: Responsibility is doing your best to meet the expectations of your teachers and other staff members.  This includes following directions.
3. Be ready: Being prepared for class each day by having your homework done and the supplies you need for each class.
 Students can receive coupons such as, computer time, homework passes, sit by a friend for the day, etc., as incentives for following rules and exhibiting other positive behaviors.  
Students in the 4th grade have a green conduct card folder that travels throughout the building with them. If a student is not following one of the rules above, they will receive a verbal warning.  After that, if the student continues the misbehavior they will receive a conduct mark.
Each day: 
  • One conduct mark results in the loss of 5 minutes of daily recess
  • Two conduct marks will result in the complete loss of daily recess
  • Three conduct marks the student's parent/guardian will be called in addition to the loss of recess
  • Four conduct marks, or a serious offense (such as fighting), will earn the student a visit with the principal in addition to the disciplines above. 
**Conduct cards come home on Friday for a parent signature.  Please review them each weekend, and sign so that your child may return them to school on Monday.
Homework/Late Work:1
Assignments given in class that are not finished before the end of the day become homework. They are due the following day unless the students are told otherwise, and given a due date. 
If a student does not complete an assignment, they will receive a conduct mark for each assignment not done, but they can still turn the assignment in late. 
When an assignment is turned in late, the grading procedure is as follows:
1 day late: the student cannot receive higher than an 70%
2 days late: grade reduced by 50 pts.
After that the grade will be recorded as a zero
Grading Policy:

Grades 2-5:


Minimum Grade Requirements:


A teacher can decide to enter additional grades at his/her discretion per grading period, but there is a minimum requirement per grading cycle as follows:


Daily/Test Grades                                           10


Addressing Failing Grades:


Ø  If a student fails a test or assignment, the student can earn the right to retest or correct an assignment by attending a tutorial session before school with the teacher for content review. 

Ø  Make up tests will be given during the before school tutorial period as not to disrupt the regular class schedule. 

Ø  The maximum grade on a corrected assignment is 70%.

Ø  Parent communication and partnership is paramount to the student’s success. 

Ø  Tutorials will be held Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday before school. 

Ø  When a student fails to turn in an assignment the following deductions can be made to the assignment:

o   Missing on the first day-grade drops 30%

o   Missing on the second day-grade drops 50%

o   Missing on the 3rd day-grade becomes a zero


Absences and Make-Up Work:

·         For each day a student is absent they have one day to make up the work assigned.  If a student returns to school on the day a test is scheduled and the student has missed important information, the student should be given the opportunity for remediation during the tutorial period before testing.  (refer to EIAB local policy)
