The purpose of Business Computer Information Systems I course is to build the skills students will need as business participants. A business participant is a consumer, business owner, or employee. Students will build their technology skills. In BCIS I, technology will be used as it is in the business world, as a tool. The goal of BCIS I is not to memorize software commands, but for students to learn to apply technology in a meaningful way. Word processing activities are used to build communication skills. Spreadsheets are a tool for solving business math problems. Databases are used to build informational skills. Presentation and desktop publishing software are tools to inform and persuade. It is important that students learn to locate and apply information. Classroom materials used will allow students to find information on their own.

Lab Fees
The student will be responsible for paying a $10.00 fee per year. This fee will cover the use of paper and printer ink.

Turning in Work
It is not the teachers responsibility to remind students to turn in work. I do not count off for late work. However, a zero will be given in the grade book for that assignment until the work is turned in. If the work is never turned in, the 0 will remain in the grade book as a final grade for that assignment.

Make up Work
It is not the teachers responsibility to remind students that they need to make up work. When a student is absent, it is their responsibility to check with the teacher for makeup work and due dates for the work. This should be done the day the student returns.

Most problems will generally be handled by communication between the teacher, the student, and the parents. If the student persists with inappropriate behavior after counseling, referral to their assistant principal will follow. Problems that result in immediate referral to an assistant principal, lowering of conduct grade and parent contact are: Cheating will result in a zero for all parties involved without the opportunity for make-up. Profanity Violence Inappropriate use of technology
