If a CHS student requests accommodations, documentation of his or her disability should be faxed to the CHS office at 412-624-5003. Please remember to include a home mailing address.

    Excused absences are absences beyond student control that can be documented by professional personnel.  Students are permitted up to five excused absences if excuse is received at the very next class. Otherwise, the absence becomes unexcused.  Students are permitted one unexcused absence for emergency purposes.  Each unexcused absence after the first reduces the student's grade by 10%.  Upon the ninth unexcused absence, the student will be withdrawn from the BHS course.  Students arriving late or leaving early from class will not be tolerated without documentation from professional personnel and will be considered an unexcused absence without such documentation
     
     No late work is accepted and no make-up work is permitted for unexcused absences.
     
    If a student wants to withdrawal from a course, the student will receive a grade of W if withdrawing before the deadline (see syllabus). 
     
    Consequences for violating the Academic Honesty Policy are either a 0 on the test/assignment or Failing the course depending on the number of violations and/or the severity of the violation.  Violations of the Academic Honesty Policy are Cheating, Plagiarism, Interfering with another student's work, Buying/Selling student work, Falsifying record, Knowingly assisting a person with a mentioned violation.
