9th Grade Classroom Procedures

Late Work/ Make-up Work: See Grading Policy for explanations of late work and make-up work.


A tardy in my classroom can be defined as follows: If you are not in your seat when the bell rings, you’ve been marked tardy. Take note of the clock in my room. That is the clock I go by. If you are in the hall and the final bell rings, you’re tardy. Tardies are disruptive to your fellow students and your teacher. More importantly, they take away from your learning time. Your participation score will be lowered because of tardies.


Bring your materials to class. Any materials left in the classroom intentionally or unintentionally are your responsibility.


Take care of personal needs before class. Our time together is important, so do your best to use the restroom or get a drink between classes.


     Raise your hand if you have something to say. Please do not talk out of turn or interrupt others. Refusal to do so will result in a lowered grade and a referral.


Test and quiz policy: Talking, passing notes, and “sign language” of any kind will not be tolerated until ALL testing is over. If you finish before your peers, sit quietly and work on something. If you have a question during the test, raise your hand, and I will answer you in turn. Any attempt to cheat or to communicate with another classmate during any testing situation will result in a zero with no make-up.


Plagiarism: Plagiarism means copying from another source. This includes your best friend, a book, the Internet, etc. Simply changing a few words does not mean you have not plagiarized. Coincidences can happen, but they do not happen throughout an entire paper. If you are caught plagiarizing you will be given a zero with no make-up. You may be asked to submit your papers to turnitin.com. Please consult the Andover High School plagiarism policy for further information.


Note: Students who are asked to leave class (hall or office) for behavioral issues will receive lowered class points for the day.


Cell Phones, MP3 Players/ iPods, or other electronic devices are not to be used or seen unless permission is given. Unless I tell you to use it, put it away.


The golden rule is RESPECT.

Your fellow peers and I deserve respect all the time. If someone is talking, you’re listening. You cannot do both. Sarcasm and light-hearted jokes are always welcome in my classroom. I can take a joke. Some people cannot. Respect that. Our classroom is a community. Let’s make it the best it can be.



I look forward to a great year!


Mr. Leab
