This class simulates a work environment; therefore your dailyparticipation is a vital part of your grade. The grading system is as follows: Daily Lab Work, Journal and Quizzes 10% Semester Exam 14% Tests, Homework and Reports 38% CACC Expectations (4 times a semester) 38% (lowest score dropped)ATTENDANCEStudents are expected to be in class daily and to be engaged in the learning process. Regular attendance isessential for success in school and in life. Research shows that students with 95% or above attendanceare more successful academically by earning better grades and performing better on college entranceexams. Our attendance goal for all students is 95% or better.A portion of the class grade is based on Career Center Expectations, which includes attendance andparticipation in class, lab, shop, or worksites. Absences, except those for a school-sponsored activity,may affect a student’s grade.MAKE-UP WORKThe following is the Culinary Arts Department policy on make-up work. Any work missed isautomatically entered as a zero in e-schools.Excused (Parent Excused, Excused, Medical, Field Trips) and Verified Absences 3 of 14
  •  All missed work may be made up at full credit.  It is the student’s responsibility to initiate contact with the teacher to get make up work.  Work must be made up in a timely fashion, within the same number of days as the absence (e.g. absent 2 days, work made up in 2 days).  Participation points are lost due to absence. Students may possibly make up lab time by working in the classroom/shop/lab outside of class time or through alternate assignments determined by the instructor. However, in some classes experiences are limited and opportunities to repeat them are not available.Suspension (ISS, OSS)  Missed work may be made up at partial credit, 50%.  It is the student’s responsibility to initiate contact with the teacher to get make up work.  Work must be made up in a timely fashion, generally within the same number of days as the absence (e.g. absent 2 days, work made up in 2 days). Instructors may expect students to make up work during suspension and submit upon returning to school.  Participation points will be lost due to absence.Truancy  Work may not be made up. This will result in zero credit for missed work.  Students will be subject to loss of participation points.  Students may be permitted to take exams at partial credit, 50%.RETURN POLICY FOR SECOND SEMESTER Students who are performing below average, or who are failing the semester are subject to removal from the program at semester. A student/parent conference will be held prior to the end of the semester with the appropriate individuals present and alternatives will be discussed.PREREQUISITE FOR ADVANCED COURSES To be eligible to take advanced courses, a student must meet the prerequisites for the course in which he/she wishes to enroll. Prerequisites vary by course, but generally include a minimum grade and satisfactory performance on attendance and Career Center Expectations. See individual course descriptions for specific prerequisite information. If the curriculum for a prerequisite course is modified in any way, a pass/fail grade is issued. Pass/fail grades do not satisfy the grade requirement to take advanced courses.COLLEGE CREDITArticulation CreditStudents may earn college credit for Career Center classes through the Articulation process. Collegecredit awarded through Articulation gives the student a jump-start into a technical degree program byallowing the student to by-pass certain entry-level classes at the college level for which the student hasalready mastered the coursework. Articulated college credit is free and is transcripted after the student1) completes the high school course and 2) enrolls and completes the required number of credit hours atthe institution awarding the credit.

  • Student Behavior Kitchen LabWhile you are at Culinary Arts classes at the Gettysburg Firehouse, I am responsible for your safety. There is a lotof activity going on while we are in production. The following rules must be followed: • Students will be assigned to production groups. The groups will be changed throughout the year. • During production, students should work with their group. • While grades are assigned to groups, individual grades will be adjusted based on professionalism, participation, productivity, skills, finished product & clean up. • If you wish to leave the classroom, you must first check the white board to see if any one else is out of the classroom. If there is no name on the white board you can then ask permission from the Chef Instructor. When permission is given, write your name and the time in the appropriate space on the white board. When you return to the class, erase your name and time from the white board and inform the Chef Instructor that you are back in the class. • Clean as you go. • If you are unsure how to safely use a piece of equipment, ask the Chef Instructor. • If you are using a piece of equipment that has multiple pieces, you must clean it, re-assemble it and return it to storage as soon as you are finished with it. • All students will participate in critique and taste all foods. Student Sous Chef Responsibilities It is our goal to help you develop the professional skills and habits that are so important to success in the industry. There are great opportunities in the Hospitality Industry for exemplary employees. It is crucial that you learn to lead and manage a team in the kitchen. It is equally important that you learn to learn to follow leadership and excel as a team member. You will be working with and for people with whom you do not necessarily get along. You are not expected to like every one, but you are expected to get along. Regardless, you need to learn to lead everyone effectively and cooperate as an exemplary team member. Every week there will be a Sous Chef group assigned from one of the production groups. The Sous Chef group will be responsible for the following (plus any other tasks assigned by the Chef Instructor). In the Classroom • Everyday a different member of the Sous Chef Group will review the recipes scheduled for production. They will review scaling (if appropriate), methodology, ingredient substitutions (if appropriate), unusual or complicated instructions. To the best of their ability, they will answer any student questions. In the Lab- During Production • The Sous Chef group will assist the chef Instructor in pre-production: keep the mis en place containers bin full; check plastic ware, paper goods and wraps; gather mis en place. • Wrap, label and properly put away all foods, especially proteins and all PHF’s as soon as possible. • Assign a group member to oversee duties of the other production groups. Assign major responsibilities to each group. • Make sure that all groups are cleaning as they go. • Verify the cleanliness and order of the lab before students are dismissed to the classroom. In the Lab- During Cleanup • Oversee and participate with assigned groups to make sure all food is properly, wrapped, labeled and put away in the correct area. • Check for proper storage and placement of foods in the walk-in freezer, walk-in refrigerator and dry store areas, including cabinets, & shelves. • Check Paper/Plastic shelves and replace supplies as needed. 12 of 14
