Coach Searcy’s Past Due Assignment Acceptance Conditions and Policy – Posted Dec 12, 2017

Coach Searcy’s Past Due Assignment Acceptance Conditions and Policy

Well, the semester is quickly coming to an end. And, as usual, there is the panic and terror that accompanies the realization that too many assignments were opted out of in lieu of something more desirable. In other words, the opportunity cost associated with completing the assignments and getting them turned in won out…leaving the completion and on-time submission of assignments as the opportunity cost.

The communication began before Thanksgiving Break that any and all assignments could be turned in, to include past due assignments, up until Friday December 8, at midnight. After that, they would not be accepted. A large percentage of the students from the three classes completed all of the assignments and submitted them. Remember, essentially all of the assignment were due weeks, some even months, before Dec 8. Therefore, the fact that there was an early dismissal on Friday does not factor significantly into the situation. Nevertheless, I want all of my students to succeed. That is precisely why I extended consideration beyond the initially assigned due date.

Despite the extended acceptance date, there are students that chose not to complete the assignments from the semester and submit them on or before midnight on December 8, but are requesting to turn them in after the fact. I understand grace, perhaps more than you think I do. I also understand the importance of due dates. Therefore…

I would like to make an exception and allow for any work not submitted on December 8 to be submitted no later than 3:30pm Friday December 15,

UNDER THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS:

  • The Maximum Amount of Credit for the assignment turned in after Dec 8th is 50% of the grade that would be given for the work submitted, UNLESS…the following condition is met:
    • A FIVE (5) paragraph minimum paper (typed/Word Doc preferred but a legible handwritten paper will do just fine), explaining why additional consideration should be extended beyond what was already provided as well as explaining what desire or desires made the on-time completion and submission of the assignments an opportunity cost…and why”, must accompany the assignment submissions. By the way, saying that “because I want to graduate” is the why I should extend more consideration, my response will be, “Perhaps it wasn’t that important as it didn’t influence you to get the assignments in on time in the first place.” So…make a good and compelling argument as to why I should give you a full credit extension.
      • Assignments turned in on or before the 13th will receive 50% credit for the work submitted until the paper is turned in, I read it, and then, based on the paper, I determine whether consideration should be extended. At that point, the additional 50% of the grade will be entered into Synergy.
      • NOTE – I ONLY WANT ONE SINGLE PAPER – NOT A PAPER FOR EACH ASSIGNMENT.
      •  Assignments without the paper, to include online assignments completed after midnight on December 8, will receive 50% credit for the work submitted. This is excluding the International Economics Study Island Assignments. I will extend the receipt of full credit if they are completed by Midnight, Wednesday December 13. (NOTE: With regards to the work done online, Study Island and EVERFI, there are time stamps that are generated when the assignment is completed.) After the 13th, 50% credit earned based on the work completed will be given unless accompanied by a paper.

Those are the conditions. I hope you will accept them.

BYOD CCSD Wireless Network Access Insrtuctions

Cobb BYOD Wifi Instructions [NEW]

For 2017-18, CCSD has changed the system for connecting personal devices to the school wireless network.

This is for personal devices only. DO NOT connect a CCSD-owned device to this wireless network. Doing so will break the wireless setup for the device and will require technology services to repair the device before it can be used again.

Here are the general instructions for students and staff:

  1. Connect the device to the wireless networked named: CCSDwireless 
  2. Enter the following password to connect to this network: cobb2018 
  3. Open a web browser and go to www.cobbk12.org
  4. Log in using your school Windows network login ID (student lunch number or staff badge number) and school Windows network password. (The same User ID and password you use to connect to a Windows computer at school.)
  5. Install the SSL Certificate to enable browsing secure (HTTPS) sites.

For information about connecting to CCSD Wireless, see the district FAQ.

For device-specific instructions, open the district FAQ and click on the tab for your device.

For more information on the CCSD Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, open the CCSD BYOD page.
