This is a very challenging course may get you 3 hours of college credit at a Tennessee State college if you pass the challenge exam.  Prepare to work hard!

Occasionally you will have projects or outside assignments, which will be scored in the Tests category but may be weighted less.  Make up tests will be allowed for excused absences only. You are responsible to ask about the test the first day you return to school. Failure to ask will result in you taking a ‘0’ on that test.  Same policy for quizzes.  Unexcused late homework will count half credit.





  • When the tardy bell rings, you should be in your seat and your homework should be out and ready to check.
  • Only drinks in plastic containers with lids will be allowed in class.Snacks will be allowed as long as they don’t cause a distraction or hinder you from doing your work.
  • Remain seated unless you have permission or implied permission from the teacher.
  • During MATH class, you are to work on MATH.
  • Phones and electronic devices shall remain off and put away and out of sight.
  • Respect yourself, each other and your school.Above all, treat people around you the same way you want them to treat you and we will have a great year.




If you have any questions, concerns or problems feel free to email or call the school and I will gladly set up a time to meet with you.
