Homework Policy 2020/2021


Homework Policy

Homework is the responsibility of the child and, therefore, should be turned in
on the day it is due.  


Students are responsible for handing in assignments that are neat and
on time. 

  

All homework assignments and upcoming tests will be posted on Google classroom.  Assignment due dates will also be posted.  Most assignments will be due at 8:00 AM the following morning. Students should submit their assignments via Google classroom. 


 A homework check will be held most mornings.   Ten points for the day will
 be received if all homework is completed and turned
 in on time.   If any one assignment is missing, the student will receive zero
 points for the day.  Homework grades will be based on these morning

 checks.

Students are given time to start their homework in class.  This is usually
not enough time to complete the assignment and/or check their work
thoroughly. 


 A homework survey will be sent home once per trimester. This survey will assist me in evaluating and adjusting, as necessary, student workload. Please feel free to check our class website/Google classroom to find a daily posting of assigned homework and this homework policy.

Absences

If your child is absent, he/she will be given 2 extra days to complete assignments. In the case of a prolonged absence, you or your child may conference with me concerning the time needed to finish any make-up work.
