    Student Expectations

    Students are expected to be respectful to all other students, faculty, staff members and guests. Students must be sure to listen and follow directions to ensure the safety of all students while working in the classroom, during lab activities and outdoor garden activities. Students can expect engaging, hands-on lessons each week. Be prepared to work hard, get a little dirty, learn new things and have fun!

    Netiquette is a set of rules for behaving properly online. Your teachers and fellow students wish to foster a safe online learning environment. All opinions and experiences must be respected in the tolerant spirit of academic discourse. You are encouraged to comment, question, or critique an idea but you are not to attack an individual. Working as a community of learners, we can build a polite and respectful course community. Please remember that ALL online activity that takes place on school issued chromebooks is monitored. Chromebooks should only be used in ways that are school appropriate. Chromebook activity is monitored at all times using the go guardian program.

    Grades

    Students are expected to be engaged and participate in lessons and activities each day. Participation is important! Students will receive a participation grade each week. Students will be required to complete a cumulative final exam at the end of the semester. The course will be graded as follows:
