Course Syllabus

My name is Justin Pinson. I am entering my 16th year in education and my 1st year at Boyd ISD. I am married to my beautiful wife Michelle who is also a teacher at Boyd and have 3 children that will all attend Boyd this year. I am also coaching this year. I will be the Head Boys Basketball coach and will coach the offensive line in football. I look forward to bringing a lot of Energy, great Attitude and Toughness in and out of the classroom this year. Go Yellowjackets!
Technology Syllabus
Instructor Email-jpinson@boydisd.net 
Technology courses are one-credit courses emphasizing the knowledge and skills associated with the basics of computer education. Students develop computer literacy skills to adapt to emerging technologies used in the global marketplace. Students implement personal and interpersonal skills to prepare for a rapidly evolving workplace environment. Students enhance reading, writing, computing, communication, and reasoning skills and apply them to the information technology environment
Expectations and Goals
1. Students are expected to be RESPECTFUL of the rights of others. Raise your hand before speaking. Be quiet while others are talking. THIS class is not a time to catch up on a nap! Respect all property in this classroom! If it’s not yours, LEAVE IT ALONE!
2. Students are expected to follow the school rules and codes. (See the Boyd ISD Student Handbook for information and school policies.)
3. Students will be in the classroom and in your seat before the tardy bell. 3 tardies=discipline referral.
4. Students are expected to be present and organized every day. Make sure you have all materials for class, INCLUDING your Chromebooks!!!
5. No coats, cell phones or other electronic devices, food, gum or drinks are allowed in the classroom. Water is allowed if disposed of properly.
6. Attendance is an ESSENTIAL part of learning! Students are responsible for missing work when they return from an absence. It is YOUR responsibility to see me as soon as possible. I will not hunt you down to make up work. Also, if you are absent the day before a known assignment is due, you will still be responsible for that assignment on that returning day! (test, projects, etc.)
7. Students will be given TWO days to complete the makeup work.
8. If a student misses a test, the test MUST be made up within two school days or a 0 will be given. Also, the test must be made up when convenient for the both of us (not during class)!
9. Cheating/Plagiarism will NOT be tolerated!
10. Expect yourself to SUCCEED!
11. If you need help, ASK! If you don’t understand, ASK! If something is wrong, ASK! If you need anything, ASK!
12. Use class time wisely! Take advantage of your Advisory Period…you do not want to stay at school any longer than you have to!
