General Content

Computer Applications is a required semester class that focuses on basic computer skills with an emphasis on Microsoft Office 2016 and web based applications. The goal of this course is to help students improve their ability to efficiently use technology and computer programs.  All work will be completed on computers running Microsoft Windows 10, Microsoft Office 2016 and the JasperActive training software.  The Microsoft Office Specialist Certification tests provided for students to take are not affiliated with schools, but recognized by businesses worldwide. A district provided Office 365 email account will be used for access to online content used in the course

Homework / Late work / Absent work

No Required Homework.  Make-up work will be the student’s responsibility when s/he returns and is due by the end of the semester. You will need to check Skyward, the class OneNote and/or contact the teacher to determine what work needs to be made up if you are not sure. Also, you may check the class website that links to the class OneNote for all the directions and requirements related to assignments. I am available in my lab for Microsoft Monday’s until 3:45.


Classroom Procedures & Expectations: “The Golden Rule”

  1. Treat everyone the way you want to be treated. It starts with you.
  2. Be prepared and in your assigned seat, at the beginning of the period.
  3. The ONLY item allowed in class is your planner and water. Keep everything else in your locker.
  4. Listen attentively to instructions so you can ask good questions when you miss something.
  5. No littering, food, or drinks in class. Keep it neat and clean (Water is allowed).
  6. Students are NOT allowed in the computer lab without a teacher present.
  7. Always log on under your own name and please log off when you leave class each day.
  8. You are expected to follow the NKSD Technology Code of Conduct outlined in The Electronic Information System Acceptable Use Policy Release form. Violators may lose the right to use the computers at the teacher or district’s discretion.


This syllabus will be available on my class website and in the Computer Apps 2017-18 OneNote notebook used in class every day in class.

You will not need to get this signed and turned back in. There will be an online Skyward quiz given at the end of the first week. Be prepared!
