Homework Policy

Homework is an integral part of the curriculum and is planned and prepared alongside all other programs of learning and a valuable part of schooling. It allows for the practicing, extending and consolidation of work done in class. Homework provides training for students in planing and organizing time and develops a range of skills in identifying and using information sources. Additionally it establishes habits of study, concentration and self-discipline.Each marking period, all students start out with a test score of 100 for homework and preparedness. points are deducted as follows; I use a clipboard with a copy of the class list to track student's scores. Absent students are given back a full 5 points once assignments have been made up. ( As teacher instructions). If a student does not have the assignment in class when it is due, 5 points are deducted; 2 points are given back when the student shows me the assigments ( at lunch). As a general rule, students may not show late assigments or missed during class. There simply is not enough time
