Classroom Procedures

Mr. Sturgill's Classroom Procedures

  • Be in your seat before the tardy bell rings.
  • If you are late, come into class and take your seat immediately; don't stand by my desk to hand me a note, just place it on my desk and quickly go to your seat. Habitual tardiness will not be tolerated.
  • Remain in your assigned seats at all times unless otherwise instructed.
  • Class ends when the bell rings. Class will be considered in session until the bell rings. Only then may students leave. No exceptions. Don’t ask. Remain seated until the bell rings. This means that you DO NOT go stand by the door or walk around.
  • If you need to leave the room, obtain the yellow hall pass from me then sign out on the sign-out sheet located on my door. Leaving the room without the yellow hall pass is against school policy, and the sign-out sheet allows for accountability. Only one person is allowed out of the room at any time. No exceptions. Don’t ask.
  • To turn in an assignment, place it in the appropriate box located on the table next to the printer. DO NOT, under any circumstances, tamper with another student’s work.
  • See me for makeup assignments the day of your return. If you are absent, see me before/after class on the day of your return. If your absence is excused, you will be given a reasonable amount of time to make up the assignments. (The amount of time given must be on a case by case basis because all assignments require different levels of involvement.) YOU are responsible for makeup work.
  • Late work will not be accepted unless it is an excused absence. No exceptions. If you know you’re going to be absent ahead of time, let me know as soon as possible. I will make every effort to work with you.
  • Any student caught cheating will receive a grade of ZERO for that assignment and will be written up. No exceptions.
  • Bring books, paper, writing utensils, homework, and other required materials to class each day. I will not provide paper or pencils for you for free. If you need a writing utensil or paper, you can borrow them from a classmate or trade me your cell phone (turned off - I don't want to be accused of looking at your phone) until the end of class to ensure I get my pencil back.
  • Homework assignments will be announced in class, posted on the board, or posted on the class website. Check each of these resources daily.
  • Check the board for the previous day’s assignments. Extra worksheets can be asked for.
  • Keep the room clean and orderly. Before leaving the room, push your chair in and pick up any garbage lying around your workstation.
  • Be careful with the projectors, computers, and other electronic devices in my lab. While I encourage students to use all of our technological resources, I would ask you to be very careful around them. I realize accidents happen, but any negligence that results in broken technology is unwanted.
  • My desk is not to be disturbed unless I give you directions requiring you to do so. I will not pilfer through your private belongings and I ask that you show me the same courtesy.

Safety Procedures

  • Do not use any machine until you have received instruction on the operation of that machine.
  • Keep feet and hands away from electrical cords and plugs.
  • Do not unplug/plug equipment. If something you need to use is not working, inform me.
  • Do not stretch an electrical cord across the aisle where someone might trip over it.
  • Do not attempt to repair equipment. Inform the teacher of the problem and do not continue to use the equipment.
  • Do not insert pencils or other implements in disk drives to avoid damage to the drives or to you.
  • Do not throw objects such as pencils, books, etc. Hand them to others carefully.
  • Do not roll or adjust chairs unnecessarily.
  • Use caution when sitting in chairs with rollers—sitting on the edge or leaning back too far will cause them to overturn.
