Assignments and Projects:

Unless otherwise instructed by the teacher, all assignments and projects submitted for marking must be keyed on a computer. 

Deadline Dates: 

  • An absolute due date will be established when an assignment is given out.  Any assignments not handed in on this date, will be assigned an incomplete mark. 
  • If you miss a class where there was a planned test or assignment due, you will require a note from a parent/guardian. In the case of a major assignment, you will require a doctor’s note. Failure to give this note upon your return will result in a zero.   You must present this note upon your return to school.
  • If you are over 18 and miss a class where a test is scheduled or an assignment is to be handed in, then you must provide a parent note or doctor’s note upon your return with a legitimate excuse. Failure to provide this note will result in an incomplete mark.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to come forth with proper documentation upon their return to school. The teacher is not responsible for approaching the student about their attendance matters.


This is a business course and so professional behaviour is a must.  If you are late, you are making a choice.  You will find that lates do affect your mark in this course as well as become an irritant to classmates and the teacher.

Some other tidbits:

  • When someone is talking, you are not!
  • Not doing homework is a choice with consequences! (ex: pop quizzes)
  • An interesting person has interests. Read the paper! Listen to the news! Contribute whenever you can. This course is full of opportunity for discussion!
