Classroom Procedures


A. Rules and procedures are fundamental in life. We follow rules and procedures in our daily lives for things such as approaching a traffic light, starting a car and driving, and making a letter. There are also rules and procedures in this classroom. These rules and procedures ensure a positive atmosphere in the classroom. They contribute to a controlled and learning environment for everyone.

Procedures for Entering the Classroom

A. There is a specific way I want you to enter the classroom. I expect you to follow these procedures:

  • You are not to stand or wait around in the hallway.
  • • Enter the classroom quietly and give the greeting of peace (As Salamu    Alaikum).
  • Take your assigned seat
  1. Prepare for FMR (Supplications or Quiz Questions etc…)
  2. Work quietly and by yourself
  3. Wait for further instructions from the teacher


If You Are Late

A. You are late to class if you are not inside the classroom when the time for class has started. If you are late to class you must:

  1. Walk in quietly making as little noise as possible.
  2. Sign-in at the Tardy Sheet. (Name, date, time) If you have a pass leave it in the folder.
  3. Take your assigned seat.
  4. Join the activity in progress. If you don’t know what the class is doing raise    your hand until the teacher sees
  5. Continue working (waiting) quietly until I get to your desk.


B. Consequences for Tardiness
See student handbook.

Grade Weight

Islamic Studies’ quarterly grade will be divided into five areas: Test and Special projects,  Drills, Classwork, Homework and Quizzes. The percentage weight for each area is listed below:

  • Test and Special Projects: 35%
  • Quizzes: 20%
  • Classwork: 25%
  • Homework: 10%
  • Drills/FMR: 10%

If You Are Absent

A. It is your responsibility to make-up any assignments or tests in a timely manner when you return from an absence. Follow this procedure:

  1. Join the activity or work in progress. If you don’t know what to do, raise your hand and wait until I reach you.
  2. During the last 5 minutes of class copy the missed assignment or activities. You may 
get this information from a responsible classmate.
  3. If you need to make-up a test arrangements will be made during the last 5 minutes of class. If student was absent on a test day, he/she must take the test the day they return back to school. If they were absent that day only. The number of absent days will determine the number of the days for the missed test to be administered. (Middle School testing policy). Tests can only be made up before school starts, during lunch or after school, if previous arrangements have been made.

B. E-mail assignments:

If you have access to the Internet at home you may e-mail me at: ask for missing work. You can also e-mail work if possible. Class work, homework and test schedules are posted on my website: http:

Turning in Assignments

The teacher will sometimes collect homework, group-work or individual work. You will turn these in only when the teacher asks for them. Make sure the assignment has your full name, period number and date. This should be on the top margin of your paper.

Extra Credit Assignments

Extra credit assignments will be listed in the class syllabus. You will have a suspense date to complete extra credit work. Anyone may turn in extra credit.

Getting Your Attention

A. There may be times when I may need to get everyone’s undivided attention so that I may give directions, explanations, answer group questions, etc. or if the noise level gets too loud. When I need everyone to stop talking and pay attention to me:
I will say “As Salamu Alaikum” and raise my cell phone so everyone can hear my alarm.

When you see me raise my hand you must:

  1. Stop talking and look at me.
  2. Wait for me to speak.

This procedure should take us no more than 10 seconds.


Procedure for the End of Class and Class Dismissal.

Right before the class is over everyone should: be in assigned seat, be quiet, gather all their materials and wait for the teacher to dismiss the class. No one will leave the class when they hear my five minute warning alarm!

When We Have a Visitor

A. When we have someone come to the door or into our classroom who is not part of our class (teacher, administrator, student, parent) you are expected to follow the same classroom rules and procedures. You are expected to be polite to the visitor. Do not talk to the visitor unless he/she is talking to you directly. Continue working on your assignment as usual.

B. If the visitor needs to speak to me privately, I expect you to remain in your seat without talking until I finish speaking with the visitor.

When You Finish Early

A. If you finish all of your assigned work early you may

a) read independently

b) work on an assignment for another class

c) write

d) draw

e) work on extra credit.




Restroom Policy

A. In order to control the amount of traffic leaving my classroom a maximum of 1 student may go to the restroom during any given period. Students will be given 3 restroom passes a quarter. Student will not be allowed to use rest room two consecutive days in a role. If you don’t use it passes will not accumulate throughout the year. Only students who have write permission from parents due to weak bladder be exempt from this policy. You may go to the restroom only if:

  1. You have complete the directed assigned work
  2. You have not abused this privilege in the past
