  2. Other info

 

This year, we will be using the ICEV program for the majority of this class.  I will have lab activities that aid in the learning process.  This program allows the students to work online at their own pace to cover the material.  The grades will be taken from the program and loaded into the INOW student management system.  I will hopefully upload grades every two weeks.  You can check your students progress by either logging on to the INOW account or by asking your student to log on to the ICEV program.  Each student will have their own password to access the lessons.  I will give a deadline for each lesson.  If the student has not completed the lessons by the deadline they cannot receive full credit.  If you have any concerns or questions concerning the material covered in this class feel free to call me at 931-285-2300 ext. 4040 or email me at jonesj11@mauryk12.org.  I am asking you as the parent to sign in the spaces below letting me know that you have received and reviewed the standards for this class.  Your student will not be allowed to begin the lab activities until the signatures are returned to me (You can keep the top portion for your records) .  I will go over the standards in class with the students.  Please list any medical issues that you feel I should know about your student.  Thanks for your time.
