Work Ethics

Work ethic is a value based on hard work and diligence. It is also a belief in the moral benefit of work and its ability to enhance character.

Work Ethics
Expectations in the Classroom

It is important to identify, evaluate, and encourage good work ethics amongst our students in order for them to make a successful transition into high school as well as to a secondary institution and the work environment.  Students will be assessed daily on work ethics.  Students will be evaluated on the following soft skills: attendance, attitude, communication, time management, problem solving, cooperation, self-confidence, accepting constructive criticism, flexibility, participation, and organization.

  • All students start with a 100 test grade.
  • Points will be deducted for every infraction.
  • Students will create a file with this information including the standards, essential questions, table and directions.
  • Students will have their work ethics file open and minimized everyday during class.
  • If an infraction occurs in class, the student will record their point deduction on their file. Students will keep up with their Work Ethics grade.
  • The teacher will record the Work Ethics grade in PowerSchool.
  • The amount of points deducted depends on the severity of the incident involved. (Up to the discretion of the teacher)

The following is our Work Ethics table and grading scale.
