Credit Recovery: If you failed a class the previous term, you still have a chance to earn credit using the Credit Recovery Program.
You must apply within 2 weeks of the end of the failed term to participate. The usual time requirement to earn the credit is 23 weeks after you start on the program. While each teacher’s requirement to recover credit may be slightly different, mine is fairly straight forward.
I allow you to turn in any late work in (more than the 3 I allow during the term) and to retake (or take for the first time if you haven’t done so already) any tests. The goal is to get your grade to a 60%. You do whatever work that will raise your grade to that point then you’re done. If turning in homework alone does not raise your grade to 60%, you will have to retake a test. If you’re missing a test, you will have to take it because there’s really no way to not take a test and accumulate the required 60% for passing.
Once you have earned the credit will have an “F” on your transcript (for calculating your overall GPA), but you will be given credit for successfully passing the class (for calculating the number of math credits for graduation). If you have any questions about this, please talk to me.
To take advantage of this:
(1) Go to the counselors’ office and get a form
(2) Take the form to the Book Keeper and pay $30
(3) Bring the form to me. I will tell you what you will have to do to earn the credit for the failed quarter.

If you have a grade below a C, you will be required to attend your class period’s “Royal Review and Reward ( R & R)” period which follows your regularly schedule class period once per week (each of the 8 periods has one R & R period once per week).
You may choose to stay to the R & R period even if you have a grade of C or better, just to use it for a study hall.
If the R & R period (once per week for your math class) is not enough to raise your grade, I expect you to attend afterschool tutoring. Math tutoring is available every school day after school from 3 PM (not 2:30) to 4 PM.
Some students stay after school the same day they have math and complete their homework during tutoring time. The material is fresher in their minds and, if they need help, a tutor is available right then.
You can also stop in to my classroom right after you arrive at school in the morning if you have a quick question or two. I’ll try to accommodate you if I have time.

I would like to welcome all of my Secondary Math 2 (Math2), Secondary Math 3 (Math3) and PreCalculus students to my class. I’m excited to help you learn what I think is a really cool subject. In a world that is increasingly subjective, it’s comforting to know that with math you can get the straight unvarnished truth.
Day #1: I will hand out your books (to PreCalculus students only). I will then discuss the disclosure statement (class rules and policies) which is available in the Rules and Policies section of this blog. I will expect each of you to read it since you will be required to conform to my classroom rules. Your parents/guardians can just skim through it quickly. I just want them to know that if they have any questions about my policies, they can easily find the disclosure statement in my blog. I would also like you to print out the acknowledgement form and have you and your parents/guardians sign it. Please return the form for extra extra credit.
If your or your parents/guardians have any questions, I will promptly respond to email (jelong@wsd.net) within a day or two at the most.
Day #2: Begin learning mathematics.
