Welcome to Mrs. Stortz's Webpage
Welcome to the 2020-21 school year. I'm sure this will be a year of challenges and switching gears but we are all in it together and will work to make sure your student gets the support and help they need to be successful in their classes. We are working with the Inside Algebra math curriculum for the algebra and Intro to Algebra groups. The program uses computer technology as well as direct instruction. I worked with this program last year till we went to remote but the district has gone over improvements and work with the company so that we can use it when we are in school and be able to shift if we need to go to remote learning. Homework is a very important component as math needs to be practiced to improve. Time in class as well as pharm and/or AA time are the places for students to do the homework and get help. This may look different this year as we don't know how the year will go. We will have time in class to work on assignments but if they don't finished the above mentioned times are a source for completing or the friday remote learning time. The pool was redone and is open for swimming this year which with the new schedule will be 1st and d4th so the class is at the beginning of the day. Students will have an outline of how this will look and the safety measures in place as we start out the semester. If we go to remote learning they will have activities that build strength for swimning and practice those skills. I look forward to getting to know you and your student this year.Jan Seaman-Stortz

- Grading policies are on the syllabus that should be linked with the class above. It follows the district weight of 70% summative and 30% formative. Separate policies for each class with assignments breakdowns are on the syllabus.
Students need to be doing homework and reviewing in order to understand what they are learning and to get help. If I can't see what they are doing wrong then I won't know how to help them or what may need reteaching. If you don't review and try things on your own you are less likely to learn and remember them. Students have the district policy timeline to complete work that they may of missed.
