Retail Operations; Spring 2019

Mrs. Jill Thompson; Pigeon Forge High School (Room 104)

Welcome to Retail Operations!  My name is Jill Thompson and I will be your student’s teacher for the Spring 2019 semester.  Retail Ops is designed to challenge students with the real world of supply chain management and merchandising services.  The standards in this course are designed to prepare students with skills and knowledge related to buying, selling, human resource management, business operations, product management, promotion, and customer service.  Decision-making skills, financial management, customer relations, ethics, and legal issues are also addressed. This class serves as the Economics graduation requirement so we cover aspects of that as well.

Listed below is information about our class and what you can expect this semester.  I look forward to working with your student this year.  If you have any questions feel free to email me at or call the school at 865-774-5790.

**  Please note:  if your student is absent from class, it is his or her responsibility to obtain notes from class and make up any missed work. I keep a Daily Agenda notebook within the classroom that lists what we have completed each day. Late work will not be accepted at full credit, and per school board policy, unexcused absences and tardies will be deducted from the final daily grade average.  In addition, make-up exams (particularly the semester exam) may be altered at my discretion.

Parental Access to Instructional Materials
Pursuant to Tennessee Code 49-6-7003, parents or guardians may request access to any teaching materials, instructional materials, and other teaching aids used in the classroom as well as any tests developed or graded by the teacher.  In order to facilitate this request, parents/guardians are asked to submit a request for such review via letter, email, or phone conversation prior to an established meeting for said review.

In addition, movies are sometimes shown to reinforce concepts discussed in class.  Most movies are rated G and PG.  However, on occasion, a movie with a PG-13 rating might be shown.  If this is a problem for you or your student and you prefer an alternate assignment for your child, please indicate by writing me a note below the signature and email lines at the bottom of this page.  Otherwise, I will take your signature as permission for your child to view any movie shown in class.
