Students with excused or unexcused absences can make up work missed; the amount of time given will be equivalent to the number of days missed. A student, whose absence is not cleared, unauthorized, considered as a truancy, or not due to a suspension, may not be allowed to complete assignments, tests, or other class work missed as per teacher discretion. It is the responsibility of the student to make up work missed due to absences. Students are expected to complete, on time, any class work they were assigned prior to their absence.
Parents may request to pick up work missed If students have been absent for at least two (2) days. Work will be available after 2:00 p.m. on the day following the request. If a student is suspended for three (3) days or more, homework will be available to pick up by the parent after 2:00 p.m., on the day following the request
Homework Expectations (BP# 6154)
The assigning of regular homework is a practice regarded as an important part of our educational program and is defined as planned learning
assignments, which require time and effort outside of a student's regular school hours. Homework reinforces classroom learning and expands upon the classroom experiences and for grading purposes is supplemental in terms of evaluating students’ mastery of course content standards.
The purposes of homework are to:
- Practice skills already acquired
- Extend learning beyond the school into the home and community
- Develop regular study habits and self-discipline basic to effective study and the ability to work independently
