Course Policies
Instructor Policies There will be a check done of each kit upon completion. Good soldering techniques and clean soldering are grading criteria along with kit being completed/working. The course grade will be the average of all of your grades on the kits and the Final Kit Check-out grade. CELL PHONE POLICY - Please put cell phones out of sight and on mute during all class times. Using cell phones during class times is distracting to other students, if you must take a call or make a call, please go into hallway to do so. If there are repeated violations you will be dismissed from class for that day and counted as absent.
Attendance Policy As class attendance is crucial to making a passing grade, after 5, 7, & 9 class periods have been missed; a letter grade will be dropped after each and after 11 missed class days a failure will be recorded for the overall grade. After the class period begins, you will be counted tardy unless there is a recognized excuse. Sleeping in class will be discussed in an after class meeting with me. Class absences can also have recognized excuses, with each being handled on a one on one basis with the instructor.
