CalculatorsTexas Instruments TI-30Xa Scientific Calculators will be part of the statewide assessments for all 7th and 8th grade math courses. This is an example of the calculator that will be allowed on the state tests. Other calculators will not be permitted. Cost is about $10. Students are expected to have their own TI-30Xa calculator in class daily.
Landrum has recently begun a pilot program with the Schoology learning management system. Schoology is a secure online program that serves as a central hub for learning. Teachers can create, manage and share information and resources with their students. Students using Schoology can get class assignments, link to readings and guides selected by their teacher, collaborate with classmates, take tests and quizzes, and work on self-paced learning activities. Here at Landrum, all teachers will be posting Daily Board Agendas (DBAs) to ensure all students and parents know what is being taught in the classroom. Parents and students are given login information.

Home Access Center (eSchool Plus+) allows parents to view their child’s educational information via a secure, password protected website. Eschool contains vital class information to help students including dates and details of upcoming assignments, projects and test dates. Eschool allows teachers to post files like worksheets, PowerPoints or text files containing important class information. Students will find the information just as important as parents.
Any student who has been absent from school shall provide a note from a parent or guardian within forty-eight (48) hours of returning to school stating the cause of the absence. If the student missed school due to an appointment, a note from the provider must be turned in within forty-eight (48) hours of returning to school. Failure to provide a note will result in an automatic unexcused absence. Notes can be turned in at the Front Office or emailed to [email protected]
However, the fact that the student provides a note does not require the school administration to excuse the absence. The principal or designee will decide whether the absence meets the criteria for an excused absence, and that decision will be final.
After fifteen (15) days of absence, whether excused or unexcused, a student must present verification from a licensed doctor for all subsequent absences due to illness.
