World Literature  Fall 2007


I,_______, understand that I'm abide by all the school rules. Frequent violations of these rules and deliberate intent to destroy computers in 459 can lead to the removal from the station, suspension and failure of the class.

I do not need a computer at home to pass and do well in the class but I will need to use time in class effectively to complete the assigned class work and be prepared for the homework.

I understand that learning is my responsibility and my active participation in the process will help me succeed.
