Questions for Ms. Rodriguez: Email is the fastest; I don't get phone messages. Mrodri2@neisd.net
Homework and Assignments: Students are required to read 30 minutes independently at home AND to complete 5 books (novels) EVERY grading period. Students should finish 20 books (novels) by the end of the year. Students are expected to complete work at home if they did not finish in class or they were absent. I also have assignments and announcements on Google Classroom (see below for codes to join). This information is provided in my weekly eblast.
Tutoring Days: Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri mornings @ 7:45-8:15. After school until 4:10PM by appointment/usually Thursday (to make sure I am there)
Policies (late work, re-take quiz/tests): Yes, late work receives a 20% deduction. According to district policy, students have three weeks or until the unit is assessed to complete and submit late work. I mark the assignment as Msg (missing) which=0 in the online gradebook if it was not received (this includes work from absences that may earn full credit).
Regular and Pre-AP classes: Failing quizzes and tests can be re-taken during tutoring or AIM. The highest possible grade earned will be a 70. ALL essays can be rewritten and resubmitted for abetter grade within that grading period, up to a 100.
Weekly Eblast is sent to parents each Friday using the email address provided in Parent Portal. Please check your email.
Remind Texting: I will periodically send Remind Texts to those students/parents who have signed up. See below for instructions and codes.
BEAR Thursday After School Sessions: 3:40-5:00PM. Typically assigned by teachers to students who are missing assignments. Teachers are there to assist. If you notice your son/daughter needs an opportunity to make up work, please email me (earlier the better) so I can put their name on the list and provide work. Students are required to stay until 5:00PM.
