ZAP stands for Zeros Aren’t Permitted.  This program is designed to encourage students to turn in homework in a timely manner.

Here is how it works:

 

1.       A student fails to turn in their homework for class.

 

2.       Rather than allowing them to take a zero, the teacher will hand them a ZAP Notice which tells them the time and date they are to report to ZAP.

 

3.       The teacher then notifies Mr. Duncan via e-mail that John Doe has been assigned to ZAP for 1-6-2009 .

 

4.       The student reports to ZAP with the notice from the teacher .  The student does the work in ZAP.

 

5.       Teachers will check on their ZAP students at 7:45.  At this time, the student will turn in the completed assignment to their teacher.   If the assignment is not complete, then the teacher will notify Mr. Duncan and the student will remain in ZAP.

 

6.       The teacher will assess the standard 11 point deduction for however many days late the work is.

 

7.       If the student fails to show for ZAP, Mr. Duncan will notify the teacher through e-mail and he will give the student a written notice of an additional day of ZAP.  If a student fails to attend the 2 nd day, then they will go to ISS until work is completed.  They will not be allowed to return to campus until all of the work is completed.

 

8.       If a student does not finish the work in ZAP then the student will remain in ZAP until the work is complete.  If students continuously fail to complete their work in ZAP, then further disciplinary action may be used.

 

 

ZAP is offered 4 days a week on Tuesday through Friday mornings at 7:05 am in the library.  Mr. Duncan is the facilitator assigned on these days.  Teachers are responsible for letting the student know in advance that they have been assigned to ZAP, contacting the student’s parents, and for e-mailing me a notice for attendance purposes.
