Expectations: Students are expected to come to class on time and prepared work everyday. Students are expected to act as adults and will be treated as such. Students will be expected to complete a variety of assignments and projects. These are elective course, therefore students who do not meet the above expectations and/or do not follow safety procedures will be assigned to a different class.
Because of the nature of Industrial Technology courses, it is necessary to discuss, learn about, and practice safety in every aspect of these courses. As these courses will involve working in a laboratory environment, safety is an extremely important aspect of student behavior and will be taken very seriously by all parties involved. Students will be required to follow all lab rules and procedures and act in a safe manner.
