Core Policies:

  • Each core class will follow the same basic routine.

  • Enter the classroom at a zero voice level and be seated when the bell rings.

  • AVENGERS CARDS- Each student will be given an Avengers Card each semester in each core class.  These cards will contain six passes per semester to be used for the following reasons:

    • Tardies

    • Bathroom use

    • Forgotten supplies/ homework

    • Any other reason to be outside of the classroom

***When students have no more passes, they will only be allowed to leave the class in an emergency. Students will be held accountable for any missed class time without a pass.

  • Put cell phones into the phone sleeve by the door to each core class or do not bring cell phones to class.  Cell phones are not to be seen at anytime in any core class. Seen cell phones will be referred to the office through the Westlake cell phone policy.  

  • All students are expected to come to class prepared EVERY DAY with pencils, pens, paper, planner, personal device (if using your own), and a personal reading book.

  • Always show THE WESTLAKE WAY:

The Westlake Way

  • Be Kind

  • Be Respectful

  • Be Invested

Make-up Work

One of the most important habits students can develop is turning work in on time. Students with excused absences may turn in make-up work in accordance with Superintendent Policy 6281 (students shall be given a period of at least the same number of days they were absent, plus one additional day to make up an assignment. For example, if the student misses two (2) days of school, the student would be allowed to have three (3) days to make up the work. The make-up period begins on the next school day following the absence.)

Missing Assignments

Avengers Core will be introducing a new policy for missing assignments in order to help assist students acclimate to the Legacy grading system. Students need to understand the importance of timely completion of assignments and consequences if work is not completed.  Any assignment that is not turned in within one week of the assigned due date or within the allowed time after an excused absence will be entered into Infinite Campus as a 1 until the situation is rectified according to the school and core policies.
