Students were required to read one chapter per week with a quiz each Friday. He allowed one makeup test with a note from a parent. Mr. Ferguson's tardy policy was strict; any more than one tardy without a parental excuse resulted in one hour of after school detention.
At least one of his classroom sessions for chemistry contained 22 individual studients, including John Reese and Cameron Phillips. Other students included Mary Booai, Franklin Lane, Andrea Walker. Cynthia Nolan, Donald Chase, Marcia Woske and Wayne Parker
