What is MAPS?
Welcome to Methodology of Academic and Personal Success.
Methodology of Academic and Personal Success (M.A.P.S.) is a one semester class. The purpose of this class is to create goals and a 4 year plan for high school. You will learn and use Microsoft Office, Career Cruising – “Assessments, Who Am I”, study Career Clusters, Career Research, High School 101, 4 Year Planning, Post-Secondary Planning, Financial Aid/Scholarships, Goal Setting, Job Skills, Banking. The subjects you master in this class will add to your success for the remainder of your school career.
As much as possible this class will be a paperless class. Only a few assignments will be printed. The majority of your work is submitted to me on the network. You will print notes and study sheets as needed.
Parents can contact me by calling the school and leaving a message or e-mail me. Conferences can by scheduled on an as needed bases.
The following is a tentative schedule for the class: Each day begins with a five minute typing tutorial using www.typing.com

Students are expected to follow all school rules. For most discipline situations, I will assign detention or get the parents involved. As a last resort I will involve the school administrations.
1) Obey all school rules & be respectful to everyone.
2) Remain seated during class.
3) Only visit appropriate/approved websites (no video/music/game sites).
4) Avoid using any storage devices from home unless given permission from the teacher.
5) Do not unplug any cables, cords, power supplies, or the like from any of the computers and only touch your computer, mouse, and monitor.
6) In this class, only work on M.A.P.S., not other assignments from other classes unless approved by the teacher.
7) Keep cell phones and electronic devices put away unless you have permission from the teacher. Cell phones should not be seen or heard during class.
All assignments will have a due date. If an assignment is turned in one day after the due date 15 points will be deducted. If an assignment is turned in two days after the due date 15 more points will be deducted. The third day 15 more points deducted. Beyond 3 days the assignment will not be accepted. If a student is absent, one extra day is granted for each excused absence.
