Web Programming & Design Syllabus

Assessment:

This course is based primarily on the philosophy of project-based learning. This
means that students will learn by designing and implementing website projects. There
will be regular projects to complete depending on the topic.

Quizzes and Tests are administered periodically to ensure students are progressing
well with course concepts.

A student’s grade will be determined by dividing the total number of points earned by
the total number of points possible. Refer to the High School Student/Parent Handbook
for the school grading system.

Per the handbook policy, if a student is absent on a test or quiz day, he or she must
make up the missed test or quiz in after school testing within one week. If a student is
absent the day before a quiz or test, he/she is expected to take the quiz or test on the
scheduled date. Extended absences will be dealt with on an individual basis. Please
remember that is the student’s responsibility to meet with the teacher and to make up
missed assignments in a reasonable amount of time.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

Be Benedictine: Listen to your classmates and teacher. Raise your hand to participate.
Respect other people’s space, properties and opportunity to learn.

Food and beverages are not permitted in the classroom.

Internet computer games are not permitted to be played. Violation of this rule will result in
a JUG without warning!

Academic dishonesty is a very serious offense. Students will be discovered who attempt
this and the consequences will be severe.

Students are responsible for their own conduct, behaviors, and consequences at all times.

The VMA Handbook Code of Conduct will be enforced at all times. Failure to meet these
guidelines will result in JUG or other consequences. Following these guidelines will help
create a positive classroom environment.

Availability:
Extra help will be available to students before and after school except on days with faculty
meetings.
“That in all things God may be Glorified.”
~Rule of St. Benedict
