The R&R program enables high school construction students to restore and remodel foreclosed or dilapidated houses, thereby gaining invaluable training in an abundance of career fields. The students would be involved in (but not limited to) the market analysis, the rationale of a house selection (largest return on investment - ROI), the purchasing, the work itself, and ongoing maintenance until the time of sale. Students would be transported to and from the jobsite during double period classes and work alongside local contractors while performing all other work that does not require a license. Requires instructor approval
BCT 211. Remodeling. 6 Credits.
Presents residential remodeling construction strategies and processes commonly encountered by remodelers. Covers obtaining building permits, as well as hands-on remodeling projects involving (but not limited to) framing, concrete, interior and exterior finish, and basic electrical, plumbing and mechanical ventilation. Prerequisites: BCT 102, BCT 104 and BCT 106 or instructor approval.
Required Equipment and Supplies
1. Pencil (every day)
2. Proper work clothing (no high heels, sandals, etc)
3. Safety glasses
At the end of the quarter the instructor will assign students a letter grade based on the following criteria:
A = 90% to 100% B = 80% to 89% C = 70% to 79% D = 60% to 69% F = 0% to 59%
The instructor will calculate your grade by expressing your total accumulated points at the end of the term as a percentage of the possible points. It will be a letter grade based on the following:
- Participation—90% of your grade (10pt/day)
Time cards will be graded at random times. They must be filled out daily, be legible, and written in complete sentences. An understanding of good work ethic and what I am looking for in participation can be found in the handout labeled “Good Work Ethic.” Students must have an approved project at all times.
2. Assignments—10% of your grade
Assignments will be given as lessons are encountered in the remodeling process.
Daily participation points breakdown:
10 pts… On time, 100% on task, completes clean-up assignment, safe, card
9 pts… On time, 90% on task, completes clean-up assignment, safe, card
8 pts… On time, 80% on task, completes clean-up assignment, safe, card
7 pts… Tardy, 70% on task, horseplay, negative attitude, etc. card
5 pts… Tardy, 50% on task, no clean-up, unsafe, disrespectful, no time card input, etc. Unless the student is absent, no time cards will be accepted late.
0 pts… Absent, cutting class, defiant, unsafe, vandalism, no time card, etc.
Students will have the option to make up points because of failure to fill out their timecard correctly. Although this is not applicable in a real-life scenario, we believe that students should have the opportunity at this level to correct their mistakes and learn about consequences early. Below are actions that students can perform to gain points back towards their grade.
1. Apply themselves diligently to work (Instructor appointed or on their own) during their own time; i.e. lunch, AAP, T.A., or during a free period. 20 minutes will count as 10 points (one day missed).
2. Gaining extra points throughout their regular period by working bell to bell and performing acts of leadership and recognized responsibility.
Student must maintain a “C” grade and follow safety procedures at all times to remain in the program. Students whose grade falls below a “C” or act unsafely will be put on a plan of assistance for a period of up to four weeks. Failure to complete the plan of assistance will result in removal from the program.
