***Important Notice from Mr. Read***
I remain on medical leave due to surgery and physical rehabilitation. When I departed on December 10, Dr. Sumes was scheduled as my long-term replacement. Her assignment may change and it is possible that another qualified substitute will administer my course. All questions should be directed to Guidance or Dr. Sumes for Quarter 3.
Below is some information that I would normallly publish for my course. Please read everything so that you understand my expectations and methods. I left complete plans for the entire course for Quarter 3 for Dr. Sumes and/or her alternate.
However, please understand that it is the responsibility of the teacher in the classroom to administer and adjust course material. Teachers and, in this case, substitutes have latitude to modify and create material as-needed, as well as refine deadlines and make allowances for incomplete or missed work.
Finally, all of the Classwork, Homework, Quizzes, and Research Papers and instructions that I post (share) on ge.tt through links on this site are suggested material for my substitute for Quarter 3. They may choose some or all material to use, or develop their own if approved by Administration.
***** Extra Credit Information *****
Separate extra credit assignments are not available. Throughout the quarter, I maintain 2 running-records (Classroom Learning Skills) that benefit the students who maintain and respect classroom expectations and guidelines. Following classroom rules is important, and students who do that earn extra credit throughout thd quarter. The CLS assessment is equivalent to a typical quiz grade.
*******Special Homework Information********
As a back-up to papers I distribute in class, I post the identical information on "ge.tt", a file sharing website. The website I use for sharing may change depending on availability; just click on the link for what you need and you will be properly directed. Use the links below to access Homework and other information. Once inside ge.tt, click on the link you need. Then, click File, Download, Open, and the document is ready to print. For Homework, you may also just view it, complete it, and return to me on notebook paper. Any Homework not returned = 0.
Week 1 (January 27, 2015 - start of Quarter 3)
The Grading weights are: Classwork, 70%; Assessments, 20%; Homework, 10%.
If you do not receive the 2 handouts from your child, they are accessible through the link on this page, "Handouts for Parents".
Homework #1 will be distributed as usual this week on Thursday and Friday; it is due next week on Monday or Wednesday (Tues = no school, parent conferences).
Quiz #1 will be next Thursday/Friday, Nov. 13/14. It will cover basic orientation information and material from the handouts on the first day of class. We have 5 quizzes; the first is the easiest, and the last is the final and most difficult (Excel spreadsheets).

Week 6 (Dec. 8-12, 2014)
Effective Wednesday, Dec. 10, 2014, I will be on medical leave-of-absence for several weeks. I will not return until the start of Quarter 4. I am in generally very good health, but I have a chronic orthopaedic issue that requires surgery and intense physical therapy. There is never a good time to be hospitalized, and I will miss Ogle, my students, and fellow staff dearly.
Dr. Sumes is scheduled to be my long-term substitute beginning Dec. 10. We have met several times for a complete knowledge transfer of materials and methods. Of course, Dr. Sumes will administer all classwork, homework, quizzes, and communications during my absence. Please contact her for questions. Be confident that Dr. Sumes is very capable and experienced.
