Middle/High School Homework PolicyHomework is a very important component in ensuring student success. Each student is expected to spend some time in addition to scheduled class instruction to achieve satisfactory work. Some assignments are long range in nature and require planned study time for their completion. Planned study eliminates the necessity of spending too much time completing the assignment the day before it is due.
- If the assignment is done and on time; it is graded out of 100%
- If the assignment is turned in anytime after the due date, the highest score it can receive is a 65%.
- Homework that is due Monday through Thursday will only be accepted for late credit by 3:10 pm on the next scheduled day. Homework that is due the day prior to a scheduled holiday, vacation or a scheduled 1/2 day will only be accepted for late credit on the next scheduled school day by 3:10 pm.
- If the teacher is unavailable through 3:10 pm to accept the late work, then the assignment must be turned in by 3:10 pm on the next scheduled school day in order to receive late credit.
- Students that miss a homework assignment with an excused absence will have until 3:10 pm on the 2nd scheduled school day after returning to school to turn in their assignment as eligible for grading out of 100%. After that, the assignment is considered late and will follow the late work policy noted above. Lengthy absences will be handled on an individual basis between the teacher and student.
Progress Reports/Eligibility Reporting
Grades 6-8: Three and six week slips will be sent home with students for parents to review. Only those students failing will require parental notification at the three week mark. At the six week mark, all students will receive progress reports. Eligibility reporting dates will coordinate with progress reporting dates and will be posted on the school calendar and web page. Grades 6, 7, and 8 send progress reports home every three weeks which require a parent's signature.Grades 9-12: Progress reports are available on the school website through the Parent Portal.
Weighting and Percentages
All weighting will be discussed and approved through department leaders and administration. Efforts will be made to keep as consistent of a policy as possible within each department.
