Good to Know!
Here is some information that might help answer some questions!
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.
**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.
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 89%
2 days late: grade reduced by 20 pts.
3 days late: grade reduced by 30 pts.
After that the grade will be recorded as a zero.
Late Assignment Class is an opportunity for students who fall behind on their work to receive extra time to turn it in. This will be every Friday for 30 minutes. Students with missing assignments at the end of the week will stay in for "LAC" with one of their teachers to complete missing work. If a child serves LAC and does not complete the outstanding work, it will result in a zero for each of those assignments.
***During this time those students who have turned in all of their work will receive, as a reward for being responsible and ready, an extra 30 minute recess.
We all know that sometimes we mess up. Every student will have a bad day, or just not remember what they are supposed to do on an assignment. Sometimes they may come home on Friday with a graded paper that is below 75%. Students have been told that they may correct daily assignments, with a grade of 75% or below, for a higher grade. Corrected papers must be corrected in accordance with the Correction Policy in the student binder, and be turned in on the Monday after they are returned graded.
**Some assignments such as tests and true/false answer work, are not eligible for correction.
