It is recommended that students email teachers to set up an appointment if they cannot reach them during the morning or afternoon office hours. Teacher availability varies depending on the day. 
A student is considered present/participating for an attendance day and course based on the following definitions: 
The student makes progress in their classwork leading toward mastery of the Nevada Academic Content Standards and/or a course’s completion that can be verified through a learning management system or other means. 
The student participates in a real-time class session (e.g., attends a live Google Meet).
The student meets with or otherwise communicates with a licensed teacher or licensed substitute teacher who is able to discuss the student’s progress in the particular course.

Digital Classroom Behavior Expectations: 
Demonstrate respect for yourself, your peers, your teacher, your school, and your education through your words, your actions, and your attitude. 
Begin class with all necessary materials out, prepared, and ready.
Please listen to rules, directions, instructions, and procedures the first time they are given.
Let the teacher teach and the students learn.
Digital Classroom Conduct for Google Meets and Canvas: 
Mute your camera and microphone until you have a question
Google Meets will be utilized for synchronous learning
Canvas will be utilized for all submitted assignments and review of content 
Student participation will be recorded so that other students can have continued access to the discussion or so that you can review important points.



Plagiarism/Honor Code: 
Plagiarism is the copying of any material from another person without giving that person credit for the idea. Should any student copy the work of another student or printed source, the student will receive zero points for the assignment, a phone call home to notify guardians, and a referral to the discipline office. 

There is a clear expectation that all students will perform academic tasks with honor and integrity, with the support of parents, staff, faculty, administration, and the community. The learning process requires students to think, process, organize and create their own ideas. Throughout this process, students gain knowledge, self-respect, and ownership in the work that they do. These qualities provide a solid foundation for life skills, impacting people positively throughout their lives. Cheating and plagiarism violate the fundamental learning process and compromise personal integrity and one’s honor. Students demonstrate academic honesty and integrity by not cheating, plagiarizing or using information unethically in any way. *This includes submitting the same assignment to two separate teachers without prior permission.

The citizenship grade given will either be: O (Outstanding), S (Satisfactory), N (Needs Improvement), or U (Unsatisfactory). O is given to students who display exemplary attitude, behavior, attendance, and effort. An S will be given to those who display satisfactory effort, attitude, and behavior. A student will receive an N in citizenship if he or she displays unsatisfactory effort, attitude or behavior.  A U is earned if the student receives a referral to the Discipline Office due to behavioral problems or tardy RPC. 

Recording of Lessons
All synchronous lessons will be recorded. Students are not permitted to download the sessions, take screenshots, or share the videos from the sessions. The viewing permissions will be set to only be viewers with CCSD Google Accounts. By signing the course expectations below, students and guardians acknowledge they will be recorded and not record or take screenshots of any session they are viewing/attending.
