Library Tech 2 Syllabus

Library Technician II

Expectations and Syllabus



Attendance: Attendance is 1/2 of your grade.  Regular, punctual attendance is mandatory for this course.  Just as in a job, absences affect performance and can lead to termination, or in our class, loss of credit.  Everyone begins with an “A” at 100%, but every tardy automatically drops the attendance grade by 1 point.  You must be here and signed in by the bell.  Every absence excused or unexcused also drops the grade point.  The only exception is a school-related absence.  There is an average of 90 days per semester.  If you choose to take a vacation, realize your grade will be affected.  You can be sick of a full seven school days before the grade would drop to an A- through this attendance policy. Most importantly, because of the daily performance requirements, any non-school related missed days cannot be made up.  After missing ten days, a discussion will take place about possible loss of credit because of the amount of work that was missed.


Assignments and Late work:

Assignments (worksheets, quizzes, and final) are 1/2 of your grade.  Assignments are due at the beginning of the class period.  Late work can be turned in for 1/2 credit.  Pre-arranged school related absences will be accommodated.


 Grading Scale:


100 - 92.50 = A                        92.49 - 90 = A-                       

89.99 - 86.50 = B+                   86.49 - 82.50 = B                        82.49 - 80 = B-

79.99 - 76.50 = C+                   76.49 - 72.50 = C                        72.49 - 70 = C-

69.99 - 66.50 = D+                   66.49 - 60 = D                             59.9 - below = F


The grade is not automatically an “A” just by being here.  You must do the assignments and have “A” quality on tasks to receive an “A”.
