Rules of the Road

 

  1. Students enter the LMC quietly, take their assigned seat, log-in to the computer, and begin their DRILL--which is practice on “All the Right Type”.  Graded keyboarding tests are given twice monthly.

 

    2.   All class work is saved online in the student drive (“L” Drive folder) and in each student’s “MY DOCUMENTS” folder.

          Because of the importance of appropriate saving of info, grades will be lowered if the DUAL saves are not done.

 

    3.    Students do not leave their computer seats without permission.

 

    4.    Students do not go to web sites other than what the class in working on.  Surfing to any other site is considered an “inappropriate action," and will result in an  

           automatic “0” grade for that day.  Repeated offenses will result in calls home, removal from computers, and lower grades.

 

    5.    Students should check their “L” drive folder each day for their assignments for the day, and then SAVE their work in both folders.

 

    6.    Students are expected to check out and read at least ten (10) library books of a minimum of 100 pages each school year.
